Starmax F-5E Swiss Markings

Here's a few photos of the Starmax 70mm F-5E in Swiss markings. The model has been on the market for more than three years but it's on sale for $109 and I couldn't look the other way without pulling the trigger. A nice flying F-5E! The retracts required a little strengthening and the retract servos need to be upgraded.....it was cheap and I like my first one I put together two years ago. I painted the canopy white and exhaust steel.

Best,
Tony

Agreed - that is a great EDF and a killer deal for $109 shipped.

I am hunting for some e-retracts to fit that airframe.

Happy Holidays and Happy Flying.

Tony - post some flight video of this nice model next time you go fly (if you get any footage). Time for your daughter to be the EDF Pilot and you to man the camcorder.

Anyway - have a great New Year and happy flying.
