Hi Hovernut,

I saw it at Dymond's store in San Diego and Udon was kind enough to post a link in the other A-7 thread. Here's the link.

that they had it in stock.

Found one at newcreations-rc.com on sale for $59.00 on the web site. When I called the guy said they were taking another $10.00 off so I paid $49.95 + 7.95 shipping.

not a bad deal, if you ask me.

Damn, too good to pass up on this fine flying plane! Thanks guys, she's on her way home to Papa.

One more piece of build advise thats pretty important. The horizontal stabilizer will need to be afixed at a near zero incidence to the wing. Don't assume the raised area on the back of the fuse is accurate, as its not. I followed the lines that run the length of the fuselage.

I think for the second one I'm going to paint if up in USAF Vietnam camo. I'm also going to go with a higher powered setup. Not that the first one is slow but the next one has got to be different to justify (rationalize?) its purchase.

As for the FS F-16, I think I saw a good price at eam.net . I got mine from HobbyPeople in the sale section.

WOW!! I thought I had one of the last from Dymond when I called in an order a month or 2 back. They were the LAST place I had on my list of venders that used to carry it (and the only one that still did). They said they were $79 but the invoice had a diff model name (F4U corsair). Figured it was just something they had laying in the back without a part number. It's good to see they put it back on their webpage too. Good finds Donodo and Udon!!

Donodo- you gonna do the Uber-F16 now?

Udon- just picked up another one of those, along with another A-7 and F-16 in the "red tag" section of a local HP, like Donodo suggested.

Hey Justin,

Well I got the new motor Razor (MK - 6200 kv) is bringing out so I'm going to give it a go in the F-16 first. I'm currently using a Razor 2500/Vasa 55 fan with TP2100 Gen2 and its plenty fast for me.

The MK is the same size as the 2500 but is a higher revving motor which should be a great performer. I'm stalling a bit to get the heatsinks we've been waiting for on the other thread. I think I'm going to need it especially for the MK motor.

So, does this mean you now have 2 or more A-7 and F-16s roccobro?

Roccobro, may I ask how much you got for your F-16? I really want to get one. Do they have anymore F-16 on Red Tag? I will be at Pasadena area on the 20th.
