New F9F Panther from Hobby Lobby

I received the new F-9F for Xmas from HL and love it. These little affordable jets from HL are great. I also have the Mig-15 and the F-86. Here's a pic of the F-9F ready for take-off on the frozen lake.

Yeah, the ice is one big runway that I can't miss!

Yes it can be.The reason I know this is the F-86 (similar jet from Hobby Lobby) was my first and it is a fairly easy one to fly. The F9F behaves nicely and slows up nicely for landing. The F-86 or Mig-15 from HL would be a tougher EDF as you have to hand launch it. And from my experience, the hand launching can be tricky!
