Remember watts is a measure of the transfer of energy(including heat) and while a good indicator of speed it doesn't always provide a clear apple to apples comparison. I think the MB-1 combos are fantastic, especially for the price, but they are Amps hogs, I think a lot of that wattage is going into generating heat. Since the motor will only turn at 3200kv and the cyclone is just a tad faster at 3300kv I don't see that as being a big differentiator. I think the Cyclone motors run more efficiently and the power difference was very noticeable, despite having lower total watts.

Nice ! What do you think about the foam J3t ? This is my first EPO plane so i dont know if all EPO is like this or if this one is better than average. I do know i like the foam a lot. Seems very strong compared to regular foam planes...

I like it, it's not very squishy if you know what I mean, I was thinking is was going to be like EPP if anyone know's what that feels like. But it is really nice foam and the best thing about it is you can breathe on it with out it getting dents like EPS foam. So but I think I will have a blast building this thing.

The paint looks to be on the latex-y side. An AirField-type finish would have been nice, but still, it's a purdy jet!

Here ya go narco, http://www.nitroplanes.com/new.html
They're under "New Arrivals". Scroll down this page a bit & the 1st 70mm Exceed F/A-18's about the 8th row down with fixed gears, then scroll down a little more and you'll see the F/A-18's with the Metal Retracts.

Happy hunting

Oops, just noticed Fred posted a reply 23 minutes before mine, guess I need to get my eyes rechecked!

Your Blue Angels F/A-18 Looks Sweet jt! I almost pulled the trigger on that one instead of the Red Viper.

Just a heads up...check all the small "C" clips on your retract legs (in pic below "C" clips are all in place, circled in Red), two of mine were missing. They could easily come apart without these "C" clips with a little vibration.

Thanks guys

I just wanted to say that since I started this thread I want to make it very easy for everyone to help everyone on this jet since it really just hit the market and not sure how many people actually have this jet. So if anyone has a flight video, mods (that work), or just videos on the jet like my "whats in the box" video please post them and I will start making a collection of videos on the first page. Hopefully this will help people out when building the jet or thinking about buying one, and this is Rcgroups and it was created to help each other. So just FYI

To sum that up, if your working on the jet get a camera and spam on the "take picture" button and share it with all of us.
