F-22 15in wing span

This is my newest jet and my first F-22 it has a 15in wing span 21in long 90gr RTF. Im useing a 1220turnigy inrunner a 2510 gws prop (90 gr peak thrust) 12amp esc striped down to 6gr, 2 2.gr servos , 2s 360mah striped down rhino lipos 17g. Ive added ailerons and thrust vecturing paddles witch are clear plastic.

The Jet isnt very fast (40mph tops) but what it lacks in top speed it makes up with quickness and maneuverability it can reverse directions in a foot and flip it over in a backflip like a peace of paper and i can slow it down to a fast walking speed.

The plans came from Esprit440 40mm edf contest winner witch are easy to follow and looks amazing

Here is a flight in heavy wind but it handled it very good, exept for the crappy landing (it looked alot worse in the vieo then in real life)luckily nothing was damaged

This jet has been a blast to fly but after the prop broke off in flight and the motor being turn out and also the motor is dying ive decided to retire this jet.
After stripping every thing out the bare airframe was 48gr.
V2 will be lighter and faster now that i know what im doing
