Aeronaut F9F Panther EDF
The Aeronaut F9F Panther fiberglass EDF model was designed after the Grumman F9F-5 Panther. The decals supplied in the kit (125183 / WL-25) displayed the markings of VMF-311 (Marine Fighter Squadron 311) which was based in Pusan, Korea in 1952 during the Korean War.
The Aeronaut model has a 52" wingspan and weighs about 7-8lbs when flying. It is an all fiberglass ARF with German-engineered quality which is the best I have seen to date. It sells without retract bays for $657 at Icare RC. The original release of the Aeronaut Panther in 2003, which is what I have, did not have landing gear bays or cutouts in the fuselage. It took off from grass using only 700 watts on 16-20 NiCd cells. It could cruise around on only 200 watts in low wind conditions or speed up to over 100mph. The second release around 2007 had gear bays, cutouts, covers, and a battery bay.
My power system for the Aeronaut Panther uses newer technology components along with the proven high-quality WemoTec Midi Pro 90mm ducted fan with its dynamically-balanced rotor. I have used this type of fan on previous projects with up to 3300 watts without issue. My Aeronaut F9F Panther was clocked around 155mph!
The Aeronaut F9F Panther was featured in these two AMP'D issues Part1, Part2. It was also flown in the 2010 NEAT Fair noontime demos.
The Aeronaut F9F Panther EDF BNF Includes a $1211 value:
Bind-n-Fly (less batteries) for $600. (includes packing, insurance, shipping UPS Ground CONUS) PayPal preferred...please PM me if interested.

PMs answered. Sale pending.
Unless you read the AMP'D articles, it isn't obvious to everyone that this jet takes off grass on its belly without issue. No bungee needed.
There are no retract bays inside on this original design from Aeronaut in Germany. Manuals are packed in the box. The wing mounting screws denote the CG. ROG is about 75' but landing takes a longer area of 500' to 600' as the clean fuselage loves to glide.
