I just read through that thread, that looks sooo tempting, I'm can see why you gave in. The EDF offer is on until the 10th of July. I wonder how long I can hold out.

I'm looking at one for Xmas. I already have a red/white F20 and love it. I'll probably get the aircraft from Markos at Warbirds-rc as he really looked after me for the F20.

I fly at PRAMS in Brisbane www.prams.asn.au. I know of one other F20 out Toowoomba way, and that is about it up this way.

F16

Hi all,

I have a nice shiiney grey one in the shop that I think might have to come home with me for winter and summer and ..... I can't have the wings warping from the cold.

I have been looking into a power plant for a while and about the best and most affordable option seems to be the 2W20 Het motor on a Wemotec minifan. If the figures I have seen are correct 1300g of thrust :-) The only problem is the bank loan for the 4s3700 EVO Lipo's, 2 packs will do but 3 or 4 would be nicer.

BTW Rod finally got around to repairing my old Gryphon over the last few days after some ratbag broke it all those years ago, I wonder if that fence is still there?

Regards

Tim

Hi Tim

Good to hear that you fixed that model, I did offer to do it for you.......

Now how did you get an F16 so soon, they've only just hit the stores in the US and Mike still doesn't have them locally?

cheers
