Also let me say this model was very easy to put together.
There is ample room under the canopy for what ever battery config of your choice.
The model calls for two servo's on the elevators I thought it redundent and used one hs81.
Also the hatch on the bottom allows easy access to install fans ducting and wires.
This is an awesome looking jet should turn plenty heads if it flys as well as it looks Markos should sell plenty also those of us who own the F-20 the F-4 is larger and fuse is is much larger than the F-20 hope to maiden this weekend if weather permits.

Brett very cool you will love it's ease of construction and your choice of power will scream also when you construct yours I would like to know your thoughts on the two servos on the elevators..

Brett, ive flown her! took me sooo long to build! i was nervous initially after taking so much time on construction, didnt want to see her in the ground after so many hours, but she flys very nicely, stable, sweet handling, i was quite surprised how nice considering i put it together! i went with the same motors as you, but with one esc and one 4s 3900 xcell pack, they are great lipos ( so far! ) , off the charger i get 1000watts and afew min's settle to 900 ish.

i really like the look of the F4, is the weight about the same as the F22?

I'll start with the dolly launch for the first flight the plane is much to large to even consider hand launching. My plane weights 3 lbs even w/o batteries.
