Looks like a few other things might be out of shape as well.

First of all thank you
It seems I have many friends here.
The vertical fin on the issue of Is because the photo view.
Of course, I have no objection I have some errors.
I know I can not perfect to complete a product. But I hope that you will perfect it.
Some post-processing. Do you know the factory pattern can not make everyone satisfied.
Regarding the sale of patterns. We have been trying to tell our vendors, so that they can provide customers with more choices. In fact they had provided from (RTF. ARF. PNP. KIT) Although I have in the design of these products, but I know many of you know better than me how well put an airplane for the better.
We have also been efforts to improve the reliability of our electronic equipment. I believe that in the future that you will believe that our facilities, to be more attractive prices.

So I'm gonna need a 12ch radio to program the LE droops, flaperons, ailevators, 360 TV, retracts, .... Is it a 90mm, or bigger?

This one could mean a divorce - I hope it's worth it!!

Close enough for me. Even if it were dead on accurate someone would find something. Just get it to fly right and that will sell it all day long. Any target date as far as a release?

L.E. flaps on F-16s are soooo much fun!

Well,, it's much bigger than a 70mm fan.. Infact it looks about the size of my old Combat Models F16, it was designed to work as a pusher or fan unit installed. The fan it was designed for was a 5" dynamax unit. I always wonder what ever happened to Combat Models and those planes... w.

Andy who are your distributors in North America? Does Banana Hobby have exclusive rights or do you have another distributor?

Some try to tell us that the scale shape would cost more! It doesn't cost a penny more to make the curve this way or that. It's just a slightly different shape. Ming is the only one I've seen who has shown a 3d model to us and we said, "hey, that's wrong" so he changed it. In his case, he was using a prototype drawing for reference and the real plane wasn't built that way. In the case of these well known fighters, I just don't know why they're not seeing what we see? There's only a million photos on the net after all.

I sure wish I had the tooling they have though. Awesome stuff otherwise.

Even though Andy designed most of the "Starmax" jets, I don't think it's his company -

But agree, I wish EJF would carry the line, as well as the sorely missed JPower
