I have the Nitro Planes F-35 but know nothing of the BH F-35. Quality is excellent. Performance is excellent for a Rx ready plane. Skill level - Its a bit twitchy because its so small but aside from that i wouldnt be scared to tell a beginner to give it a go. An F-35 is a very forgiving airframe, it will stall and fall flat rather than tipping a wing or dropping the nose.
Any F-35 with the same size fan running a 1300mah lipo is probably gonna have about the same performance as stock.

The BH model I see on their site is made by freewing.

That's a challenging model to fly. There is no landing gear, it's a hand launch only. here's a thread regarding that model: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=890957

I really wouldn't recommend it for a beginner.



Starmax makes the F-35 that Nitroplanes carries. It has landing gear and is more forgiving.

Star Max F-35 C/G ??

Is the center of gravity actually 480mm from the nose back ?? Front or Rear Hatch ?? I was going to try the rear hatch for I see other guys doing it, it just seems to nose heavy if you use the front hatch ?? Any input will help !! Thanx !!

how long your flight is with your 1300 Mah battery? and did it require any modification to C.G?
