Yes, it is very doscile. It comes apart easy if you look at the ARF pic's on HK. I'm not pushing for triple numbers so I may put in an old "supersonic V2" and my Jetti. Either way is fun to fly and has allot of potential.

For sure I would recommend it. It just needs more power. Next thing Im going to do is try it on 4s. Dont care if the motor blows. as I mentioned, Im adding another one.

Just finished building mine. Easy build, it came at 325 gr compare to 383gr for my funjet. I would say that it's look like a mix of a microjet and funjet! time to plug the Wmeter. With stock prop 200w, 17 amp. With APC 6x5.5 235w at 20 amp. I also added a carbon fiber spar. I suspect if you want to go with a hot setup it's a good idea if you want to pull some G's.

hey Eric! I remember that ugly old orange thing Thats what made me buy that much better looking RadJet.

I would move the CG back 10mm from stock. Its still slightly nose heavy in the stock location.

I need to get some more pitchy props. I only have 6x3 on hand.

I added a wing spar too.

Ugly is why it make it so special! I know it's about the equivalent power I have on my funjet but it's more profile so it's should move pretty good. Unfortunately there is not as much space as the funjet for batteries.

Don't forget to land inverted, it's always cool! Can it slow down as much as the funjet can?

oh thats right! land it inverted like you do to protect the prop.

It may not start out with enough room for 4s, but there is now.

There is no code.

I flew it today, and let me tell you.... 4s is definantly the way to go! MUCH Faster! The speed improves the handling and its just a lot more fun. I think the CG can actually go back 20mm from the stock location. Thats what I did, and it flys great.

Im uploading video now. Will post soon

That was great vid!! So that was with the stock motor on 4S? Great, I may give that motor a second chance on a new project. I added hinges to mine and a V2 SuperSonic on 3S. The first time out half throttle and it took of verticaly from my hand. I was not ready for that and with my throws set high it did a backflip. But all is good. I need to find a larger field to fly at like yours, that looks great. My closest field has a perimeter of trees. Not a good spot for my little rocket.

Thanks! Yup! Stock motor. 30amp esc from the Stinger Jet. and a 6x3 prop, though 6x5 would be much better.

Just got the PNP delivered just before the weekend. I glued the few pieces together, put on a Rx and battery and it smoked! Turns out one of the servo was seized or faulty, had to replace the pair with another set, so haven't had a chance to try it out yet. And I cut and profiled the foam next to the motor to get cleaner airflow to the prop. Also added an exit hole for the fuse cooling. I thought it was odd there were entry holes but no obvious exit holes.

There's a hole in the firewall. I presume that would be the exit for the warm air.

Have you maidened it yet? We need Video!!
