http://www.nitroplanes.com/thac6smbalic.html
cant wait for nitro planes to do a review on it.
just a thought i think nitro planes is really stepping up there game and i really like it. There getting new edf jets by a so far good company and there making in box and flight reviews. Its a lot easier to make your decision to buy something if you can see what your getting and actually see it fly.

So i guess this will be the thread for it. (flyboytha1 will probably get it and make a fantastics video as he always does on this edf f18).

There is airframe only on ebay from same factory for $75 shipped. This guy has bunch of airframes for cheap considering it's shipped from Hong Kong.

I'm loving the 30th anniversary color. This is definetly a plane I am looking forward to. I noticed that the bottom part of the plane has an opening. Do you think it will come with retracts?

edit: Nevermind, it doesn't

the only part i dont like is only a 64mm fan unit, and the wierd thing is that Airfield rc's f4 and f16 were both 70mm and good size. What happened? but the jet looks great

They still carry the Starmax 70mm F-18 under the Exceed label:

Currently out of stock but still the great price of $90.

The owner of nitroplanes told me that the 70mm f-18s will be available this month but under the Airfield brand name.

I hope it's true.

Sounds right; they are refreshing their labels from the old "Exceed" to "Airfield"; mostly the same product line and manufacturing with some new ones added. Models are still manufactured by FMS, Starmax, JPower and others.

I saw them and I though they look pretty freaking kool!!!. I'm an F-18 freak, but then I noticed the 64MM fan and I was disappointed. I'm done with 64MM fan Jets. But the Jet look very nice on those color schemes.

70MM FAN PLEASEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That link is to a charger? Here is the correct link.

Yeah that commemorative scheme ROCKS! Too bad it's 64mm. If they come out with that scheme in the 70mm version that would be awesome. I've already got the Exceed Blue Angels F/A-18 70mm version.
