Looks nice! That's the only one from that company that I thought about buying. The rest look like toys, especially their A-6. That Harrier looks pretty good though.

We gots'em!

They fly really well too! You can set them up really light ~500 watts, and with a few knots of headwind, you can swear you're coming in for a VTOL!

Or you can pour in some power and make it a hotdog... just make sure you reinforce the wing...

That looks great, you can get bombs from places like Hobby Lobby and Banana Hobbies, just to to the spare parts sections i.e. http://www.hobby-lobby.com/f_16_supe...QueryId=815488

That is what I do for mine...

I think it is Guan-li. The same company that makes the nitroplanes brushless A-10 (GWS rip off).

Great I will Check A both Places and it looks
like there are some to be had out there.
It is a light plane I was surprized, and low parts count
It is kinda stand off scale but with some work
it can be made to look quite good

These are a lot bigger than I thought, I bought one each of the F-35 (looks kinda cartoon-ish but close enough for me) Sea Harrier and the the Mirage 2000. All 3 are for 70mm fans but the Sea Harrier is MUCH bigger than the others, the Mirage is tiny by comparison (the Mirage is actually smaller than the RICCS one, not a lot of room for batts for a 70mm setup, my 4S 30c 2000mah Zippy Flightmax packs are a tight fit between the cockpit walls so I went with one of Don's hot 4s 64mm setups and modded it to look like an Aussie Mirage III/O, waiting for the ground to dry out before maiden)

There looks to be enough inlet room to fit a 90mm fan, was thinking of hogging out the fan area and fitting one of those $80 changesun 90mm combos, airframe is plenty big enough to carry the batts, would be the cheapest way to cram 1+kw in it (have some 6s 3000mah 40c batts for my trex 500, kinda small for a 90mm setup but should be able to support the 70amps of those combos, plus would be a light setup), wings would need plenty of reinforcing though

Also I HATE the way the hinged the control surfaces, picture a short length of small diameter fuel tubing, one half glued into each surface, a quick tug on most of mine and they fell right off, they got turfed for some nylon pinned hinges really quick

I worked tonight on the landing gear to make it more scale I need to come up with the center wheels and smaller side wheels, but all in good time. I found the template for the white canopy lines, I'm thinkin white tape? dont know maybe ponder it some more I also need to modify the rear of the canopy, maybe even re paint the whole thing.
