Taft should have just scrapped this idea and worked on the F14 .

I don't think it's a terrible looking product, but the stock Taft 90mm 6S power system is a little yawn inducing for me -- especially in these large foam jets.

Boring... Looks like he got too drunk late one night and redesigned the viper...it's just kinda ugly in my humble opinion.

To each his own when it comes to taste. How many Habu's are out there?
As for the 6S system, the Changesun 1600kv motor works well with the TAFT "90mm" fan and would likely show improved performance. A cheap upgrade for $35 plus $7 shipping.

Dang it. Saw this thread and thought someone was finally making a decent sized XB-70. I guess the waiting will continue...

I am probably one of the few who like it ,if it where more streamlined , it would have been a nice spped plane ,but that fuselage is huge ,I think I fit inside that canopy
