T-45 Maiden - WOoooHoooo!

My T-45 flew for the first time today, and WOW what a great flying airplane! I now have a T-33, A-4, F9F and a T-45. All my jets have the Himax fan/motor combo with hobbywing 30a ESCs run on 4c 1000mah 40c batts. I think the T-45 is close to being my best jet out of all my 50mm EDF fleet it's fast and tracks well wit no bad tendencies - I love it! Here's a video of one of the flights today:

Woohoo!!! SLUF and Intruder!!! My top 2 request since the beginning my prayers are answered. You're right about cartoonish looks, especially A-6. I hope the carrier film on the production plane gets better...not so off colored.

Thanks for posting those Bajora,

Do you have a head on view of that Corsair?

I think I'm going to need one of those...

Sigh... Just when I thought my fleet was not going to expand anymore, they start teasing us with an A6 and A7!

camo A-7 color scheme please I really have a feeling this will be a fun jet to get. Wanted one since when i first saw brushed edf bare airframes from EJF years ago.




also the Real a-7's intake wasnt very tiny either



anyone plan to mod for a full flying elevator just to do so LOL?


also very stoked on the a-6 intruder, growing up "flight of the intruder" was one of those VHS tapes that got played over and over again.

Phase 3 F-16 vs the 50mm fleet

Hello anyone flown a Phase 3 F-16 and some of these 50mm EDFs? I love my phase 3 F-16 and want to expand my fleet, do they handle as well as the P3 F16? I'm running Rhino 3S 1750 25C in the F-16, been flying for 2 years and just flew my 300 flight using the F-16 in 20-25mph winds. I've noticed I can fly my F-16 in crazy wind were as I can only fly my 40" Corsair in 0-5mph winds and need a tarmac for TO/L. I love being able to toss the F-16 in the air at the local soccer field and land in the grass. This series of 50mm jets is as addicting to collect as pokemon to kids LOL.
