Beautifull scale jet at Banana Hobby store

Banana hobby store have severals beautifull scale jet at a very reasonable price. I knew they sell the same F-16 I bought at Hobby Lobby at around the same price, but they sell now also a new version with trust vectoring EDF, beautifull clear canopy, full moving elevators, fully arm and for less than the price i paid mine

The F-14 is amazing with his two 60mm EDF, functionnal swept wings, retractebale air retract landing gear or $499

I will not be able to resist very long...

That looks like the exceed f18, if it is I bought one from nitroplanes I think, it is pretty good for the price, flies really nice and fast but still handles well at low speeds and it looks great in the Canadian tiger meet scheme, matches my tiger meet F-16


I bought mine when I saw that video on youtube

The one I want to buy have 5 feet long and use a 90mm EDF. The one in the video look smaller, perhaps the guy at the end of the video is a giant, who know?

Set that one up with the same system your F-16 has... now THAT would be sweet! Turn around and watch the wings sweep

VRFlyer,
I thought you would have also gone for something like this Mirage:

Look like there is plenty of room form FPV gear, and large, clear canopy.

EDIT: Oh, didnt realise the banana prices included rtf gear...

Pick up a cheap airframe-only kit from Nitroplanes... if you use a 70MM, pick up the new Don's BI-3600 motor and an HET 6904 to go in it. Great combo for my F-16, which is identical to yours except a different color scheme.

I buyed another F-16...
My idea was to buy a F-18 to make something different, but after I seen the RC Lander F-16, I prefer go for this one because it have real landing gear, and much more scale look than mine. All F-18 I seen that look great with retract are expensive or have a reputation of poor quality electronic.

This one have a good reputation:

I will transfer my dashboard etc in the new F-16. I will kept the present one to fly visually only.

WOW!
That one IS beautiful. It even sounds better. I wonder if that is the fan or improve aerodynamics or smoother intake.
Nice find, Dennis. I'll be looking for a build thread.
