Nice to see something not already made by 5 different companies.
Looks like it may be well executed.

But as suggested above, some folks dont want to have to buy 6$ batterie$$$

Not everyone has a landing strip or smooth ground/paved area so handlaunch and belly landing on 6 cell is going to be a little hairy.

I saw this earlier today when the video popped up on my YouTube subscriptions list. Looks fantastic. I've been off of EDF lately and on prop warbirds but this one has me thinking again. Just yesterday I saw pics of a Venom in a nice looking cammo paint scheme. Hmmm....

Nice looking model except the nozzle is way too big. The early jets were underpowered and had small engines. This one should have a 70mm fan in it and a more scale nozzle area. They do fly nicely and it's a lot closer to scale flying. You actually have to fly the plane with some thought about energy management.
Tongue in cheek, why don't you add an optional 8 second throttle acceleration response and you'd have a pretty good scale model.
