I must be as lost as anybody. I have ordered 2 planes from Nitro but cant find this one listed. When I click the f-18 icon I get the airfield and maxjet kits. When I search I get tidbits from the old 70mm exceed kit.

Nitro is listed as coming to the Wram show this year. Maybe I will have to aquire this kit if they bring it. It's this or the 80mm F-15 that Easytiger sells. That model is great looking.

RC Lander metal gear LS-2 servo (which are GREAT servos in my opinion). Lander was very smart and started creating reverse servos. I love that company, lol. They always get it right. Scroll down, and choose whether your want the regular or reverse servo.

If you decide not to buy the servo reversed, Sent them to me and I'll reverse them for you if you would like. You have been real cool on the build, this is what I can do to give back a bit.

Thank you for the links I probably get the servo reverser instead of the reversed servo and I need that 3 leg cable for the retracts. And If I need anything else I will just down to the local hobbyshop and see what they have.

j3tman,
Here's another site (Windrider.com) if you need Retract extensions. $1.50 + $1.00 shipping. It's where I got mine, great quality.
Link, then third item down: http://www.windrider.com.hk/product.asp?id=166

Full elevators would be awesome!!!! On mine I am just going to use the stock elevators with no mods, but if you can pull it off it would be a great mod.

Yeah I think it would fly more realistic especially if you could tie them in to the ailerons, not so much for high speed but it would make big diffrence at slow speeds if you ever watch a superhornet demo you will see the elevons making huge deflections and give the plane it's superb agility, I belive the hardest part of the project would be matching paint

My art tech F14 has full moving elevators and it a simple setup and it should be a pretty straight forward mod. Would you still use the elevators that came with the plane or would you make some balsa ones?

I was thinking about making some out of foam but on the other hand wood would be much stronger, but this will be a mod to do after get some good fights on her
