Hey, that looks nice! How about a flight report and some details on weight and gear requirements?

Browse the Jet Forum and there are some early reports on building and flying. The models both fly very groovy and almost too darn fast for indoors.

They use pull/pull controll linkages for aileron and elevator.

They are designed around the GWS EDF50 and the GWS Pico flight pack, or similar micro RX, 2 amp or better ESC and 6-8 gram servos. Perffered battery so far is an 8 cell 300 mah NiMH.

Weight is in the 7-8 oz range.

I need to go get the exact span and length figures, but they are both about 25" in span and 25" in length. Wing area is about 150-160 squares.

Thanks for the update Tom, those jets are just too cool.

I'm starting to see what everyone was talking about my credit card being in trouble when I first got addicted to eflight.

I just ordered a Switchback Sport! Oh well, thank goodness the Sabre's won't be ready for another ten weeks.

Is there any chance of ordering a F-86 and having it delivered to the Toledo show? Are you going to have a booth set up at the show? I plan on going and it would be great to bring one of these kits home with me.
Thanks
Frank

fgroza, they have decided to do Toledo as a first come, first serve event and are taking no reservations for kits to be delivered at Toledo.

However, you being an Ezoner with the inside information, you can race directly to the Fantastic Models sbooth when you get there and score a kit. Other than the anouncement in this forum, I do not beleive that there is any other significant publicity going on.
