You have some very nice looking jets. I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on a Jepe F-16 and wondering how you like yours compared to your other models? By the way, yours looks great in the Thunderbirds scheme.

One of the best flyer I've ever had, and a very high performance airframe.
But it's really a bungee only plane! And good eyesight is a must, esp. for semi-scale paint schemes (grey, white etc) since it gets small very very quickly .

Thanks for the info Herb. I plan on placing an order for one soon. I realize it is strictly a bungee plane.
With the speeds this thing is pushing I'm sure it does get small very quickly. How do you consider the Thunderbirds scheme from a visability standpoint? I'd really like to do the T-Birds as well. I'd prefer a USA theme (what better than T-Birds!) but I also like the Singapore Demo scheme with more red for better viz...
Thanks for the info!

The TB's scheme is ok for visibility on a blue sky or cloudy background - it stands out quite well esp. with the blue bird on the underside.
... but I flew it once in the central valley at an event (visalia), there the sky was a milky white (haze) and it was awful, I was shocked at how hard to see it was :eek
The physiology of the human eye is such that the best colors end up being red and yellow, you can see those a mile away. Contrast between top and bottom is a must too.
