What is the diameter of the motor shaft? 2,3mm? or 3mm?

Expect 3mm or 3.17 (imperial units) 2mm is for very small planes

When are we going to see the t-28... it looks awsome...

They Need to do a Focke wolf fw190, and a Zero... those would be two great flying planes...

Why do some of them have clear canopies and others don't?
Some look better than others; the 109 is almost beyond saving, but Pete has a point; sometimes that's what it takes to make a good flying model at the given scale. The 109 video looks like it's one darn good flyer.

I have several of the Jpower 50mm jets and love them, but the looks on these are way way off. I'm not a scale nut, but these look too cartoony.
Try the FMS Me109 or Corsair from
nitromodels.com
Or the Micro Corsair or Mustang from
easytigermodels.com

I have all four. They are not perfect. The 109 and Corsair from FMS are somewhat underpowered, and both are very tailheavy out of the box. Best to change out the power system and put in a 3s battery before even flying them. But they fly well.
The Micro Corsair and Mustang are tops on looks, but both are also very tailheavy right out of the box. You need to know this before trying to fly them. But for shoebox sized fun, they cannot be beat.

I think there are a lot of excuses being posted for why these are so far from scale, but the truth is they are really just badly drawn and unless you are trying to make a fighter into a trainer, there is no reason to deviate so far from the real plane. Sorry, try better next time, Jpower.
As I said, I have several Jpower 50mm jets, and I like them very much, but these warbirds don't look good at all.
Hold out, there will be more better planes coming from others.

The one that Bajora flew was a test plane and not a production model.

Good comment and observations on the others available. I have not owned or flown them. If you don't like the looks of these, it is best to vote with your wallet and exercise your right to refuse to buy them.

But, while you are waiting for the next better thing to come along, I'll be busy having some fun ripping around the skies with a few of these.

Bajora, have you tried 4s yet? I'm dying over here and I need some news on these pocket fighters. I have watched your video so much that I have almost worn it out.

I don't mind the looks of them at all. I have a Gravity Zero and i have a hot setup in it and in the air when it goes hauling by I've never heard anyone say that looks bad. Mainly they are just amazed at the way it flies and looks in the air. They're so small and quick that you couldn't make out any details at 50' if you tried.

That is too cute! When airframe versions of these become available, I see it as potentially a nice little platform for experimentation with the smaller/lightweight motors and other components. Like chuck-glider conversions, only nicer-looking (and probably better-flying). If we could only convince them to include the canopy in the bare-airframe versions, that is...

The thought also occurred to me that going to this style of prop hub will make for better cooling too
