Any good business backs there product by numbers , even burger king has a sign on the wall telling you calories.

I will and have backed all my numbers and I work for no one . I'm trying to give people an alternative , jetfan is one of those at half the price .

And" barely anything inside " ' really , like what fairy dust and spider webs for servo lines , there nothing special about your build ,,same products inside as everyone else , off the shelf servos and servo wire , spektrum receiver , eflite retracts with your upgrade , when you built your first one it weighted 7.2 lbs as I recall.

The silver fits in nicely with how the stabilators and tail cone are decorated so silver will signal top side up. Orange is always on the wing bottoms of my models so I stayed consistent there. This should provide some cues that the Navy camo doesn't (I hope).

Resisting the urge to put big black bars on the bottom of the wings but who knows what I will do if my Phantom survives a flight or two. Cheers! Dana
Your not alone..

dude I think its time for you to go boke a smowl
go back and look at Tams build it is far from a stock build if you look closely enough you may catch some things he didn't talk about, things he did talk about and shared have other effects that may not be obvious but if you pay attention you may learn something. yes his first one was built the same way and was 8s and yes it was also 7.2lbs. for a guy who just got his balls wet you sure are getting a bit jumpy. Tam has been paving the edf highway for a while now, maybe you should just ask questions, listen and learn.

I finished my F4 a few days ago, 7lbs, 8oz AUW with 6S, 5000mah battery, Shulman trailing link gear, completely stock setup. To be truthful, after reading some reports about the stock setup being underpowered, I was not planning a maiden anytime soon. I'm also not going to put anymore money in this plane, as I like the 90, 100, 120mm jets much better. That changed, it's going to fly this weekend, as is.

I will tell the truth about the flight, if I can bring it down and land it, then, anybody can, and it will erase any negative thoughts. Everybody that I've seen flies the Habu32 at our field, and here the F4, onto the runway at high speed. I don't land anything that way, I'm a full stall carrier type pilot. So if I can fly on final with high alpha it's either going to tip stall or land, one or the other.

If it stalls, I want a dynamite crash, maybe even a fire like the real thing. The peanut gallery always looks forward to my flying, either it's great, or a spectacular crash, nothing in between. I build a plane a week, not to many crashes lately, so the inventory is growing, something has to go.LOL The weakest link or bad flyer will bite the dust. My motto for maidens, If it goes home in one piece, it's a keeper.

Oh , and did you see the scale , money where my mouth is .
James,
Listen to the video when I'm talking to my son right after landing.
What did I said?
Flying heavy turbine aircraft and now flying the EDF is so light.
Too light for the windy condition.
Do I need to lie to my own son....give me break....you been very jumpy since this morning.
Just because I can built it light and you want to bust me and want to show you proof.
That is dump.....

You know it babe....
My latest A-4 weight 15.5 lbs and power with TJ90.

There is many way to skin the Hawk.
Even my 12s Habu still at 8 lbs.


I'm loading my 3 flights right now. By the time landing the wind pick up so bad. I almost throw the radio to Sean.
The wind caught me on the landing. Minor damage is it fix for the weeken at Button Willow.
Now is had scratch and I let all the turbine guys get some laps.
