Cool
Recived my TF model/smartmodel LYNX

Today the postman brought me a big parcel from Kin!

It's the brand new TF model / www.smartmodel.com.hk LYNX.

First impression: BEAUTIFUL!!

It is a break open design with three main parts. The landing gears are fully dampened CNC beauties!

I will be looking forward to the build. It is going to have a Bullet 500 in its belly and a 4 headed TF model head! I received the head some days ago and i is amazing!

Thank you all the guys at Smartmodel and TF model!

Lars

No, just as the full size Lynx, this model has oleo strut landing gear to handle those rough landings aboard ship while on patrol in the North Atlantic.

The naval version, unlike the ground-based version with skid landing gear, has a non-retractable quadricycle landing gear with oleopneumatic shock absorbers.

Wow! Looks like i will be spending on both that and the four bladed tail....

But isn't that the one delivered with the Bullet 500 ?

Looking forward to it. Just started building the Bo-105 and bullet-500. All very nice!

Thanks Kin!

The Bullet is complete, now that i got the engine and speed controller from you! I am missing a Gyro, but maybe the Bullet 500 will takeoff sometimes next week. :-)

The Lynx will be my winter project. Working on my Bo-105 first.

The Bullet-500 will be flown a lot before finding it's new home in the belly of the BO and the Lynx to get experience on the Magnificent TF-model 4 bladed head!



Now i just waiting for the Lynx manual and the 4 bladed tail
