Outstanding. That will sound cool with those twin ducted fans. Did you install brakes on it?

since these are going to land like kits, i think we'll be ok i just watched a 50 lbs turbine hawk yesterday thats 1/3.5 scale, and the wings were barely any bigger than our 38 wings, and the 38 is a couple ft longer, and that hawk landed like a sig kadet. were a solid 20 lbs less, these things will be pure kites lol. so much so, we may not even be able to use the flaps. thats how my 1/8 scale F-5 was. could never use the flaps because it just wanted to float like crazy lol. i should find the video from the year i had the F-5 at vegas

I remember seeing pics of that F5 back when I first got intrested in EDF. It was a good looking jet. I couldn`t believe that it was made from foam. I never did see any vid of it though.

If I`d have seen that video I would have been after you for plans. That thing flew great. Was that a midifan in that thing?

Sixth choice. The winner of the raffle at the jet rally gets to lay down on the runway and be a slow down strip for the T-38. The nice suspension struts will be give like butter, the T-38 won't feel a thing and you'll lose about 10 mph right there. A second slow down strip, the runner up in the drawing, will get her to taxi speed. Good to go.

Andy and Brent, a friend and I are looking at the possibility of building one together, what are the actual chances of a short kit.
