Hi ALl I'm back at my Crash Course EDF Fighter jet building programme & next on the list along with the F-105 is the F-102 Delta Dagger or "Deuce" I'm building two of these Gunless wonders! lol
I started Off Here on RCG building Fighters & Bombers, and for the last 3 years I've been building NOTHING but airliners, that's about to change, It has changed, I want Balance in my RC-scratch-building life.

Size & specs are right here, I look forward for your input & ideas & opinions!

In 2-3 weeks I will start the Japanese Kikka Jet fighter of WW2 so stay tuned!

A Model will Help . . . .

Whenever I build anything in the world of RC aircraft I find it to be a HUGE help when I have a Model I can hold in my Hands.

Let the building begin!

Here are the two F-102's Delta Tail's being fashioned from 4mm Balsa sheet, these will be sanded down then a CF rod will be added for strength.

Your right Sir, i'm gonna make a profile version of this plane so I can properly set up the elevons on the Delta wing so don't crash the 2 original Daggers.

thankyou for the comments GPW!

Hot-wiring the fuse

Now I'm getting ready to hot-wire both F-102 Fuselages from 3" foam, that's a card-board stencil placed on the foam.

Good Idea?

I'm thinking of buying a HK Stinger 64mm EDF jet and taking its EDF-Motor & ESC & putting them in the Daggers,

Good Move?

Bad Move?
