My C-130 was hovering, when it was facing strong wind. It practically stayed there..stop in mid air..

Nice looking planes, jstone. The cowl on your Zero is actually on upside down, just in case you might want to adjust it.

No its not - the cowl is correct - it's the plane that's upside down

Excuse me Gentlemen (and Ladies),
May I know if GWS sells any of those F-15, F-16 or F-14 or SU-27 foam Jets? Also, can someone give a link of the most popular GWS models online stores?

Thanks,
Rico.

Rico -- unfortunately, the answer to your question is "no".

The only jet GWS sells is the A-10 (though they do have a ducted fan version of a few of their prop airplanes like the Islander and the C-130).

Check out www.gwsexpert.com and www.towerhobbies.com

Best of luck!

Thanks for the response and the links. Looks like the p-38 is a nice plane.

Rico.

Yes -- most of the "earlybird" pilots are reporting back with very favorable test reports!

Mine should hit the skies within the next two weeks...

Rico,

Also try www.allerc.com. They generally have a wide selection of GWS kits, and prices are very competative.

Thanks, Mr Chen. The GWS-38 looks interesting. I hope GWS will also consider those F-15/14/16 and the SU-27 pusher/DF Jets.

Rico.
