Looks good Mr. Lin
You have to find a way to get them out on the street faster.

Skyhawk - comparing an AO-4M to an average T-Bird is hardly a fair comparison, the M is in a completely different league.
Indeed, you are right though, hori stab fwd and up a bit to be truer to scale.
Myself, I much prefer the TA-4K, especially this one since I had a backseat ride in her.

I have the HUD tape, low level through the mountains and 50ft over the sea, great fun.
If you are able Mr Lin, a drop tank or two and a canopy for each and the hump as well would be awesome, either in the kit or as optional extras. I think with the profile you have now either canopy wouldn't look too bad on it.

I suppose a drag chute is out of the question? ;-)
I dont care either way, looks like I'm soon to have my first EDF plane!

Looks very nice.

Like the others posted, if possible have kit with options for different versions,
eg separate 'hump', canopies, drop tanks etc.

For my use, it looks a bit big, heavy, (and fast too), for indoor gym flying.

Oh Gezz..... now were really splitting hairs

I could go on all day about the differences between every model of A-4 ever built - but in the end the OA-4M is just a two seater with a shortened hump on the back. Point is (generally speaking) regaurdless of powerplant, avionics, strucural strengthing, the A-4 is essentially the same no matter what model you are talking about. They all had the same wingspan, tails, and length (of course the two seater was 28 inches longer and except for the stubby nose A,C,L models)

That there is an OA-4M..
Well I know that.
And what was the OA-4M?............It's a converted TA-4F. Which is the same as the TA-4J, except that (well most) J's had the guns and attack computers removed as they were only used for training. The F didn't hang around long and most were converted to J standards.

Exactly.. so.. now we're back to my original statement..

If it is the TA-4J, then it won't have the hump..

Now, about that EDF75.... I know that Mr. Lin already thinks us folks on this side of the Pacific always want to over power everything but lets just say one wanted to add a little pep. I have heard that the EDF 75 blades can only handle 200 watts max. Anybody wana volunteer some info about the EDF 75 performance at near maximum power or suggest a fan to replace it? I was thinking a WeMoTec mini fan could be made to fit allowing for more motor. Thoughts?

My thoughts are you havent read all the U-2 threads. Mr. Lin
has said that the EDF 75 is in a rebuild mode and should handle Brushless when tha new one comes out Soon. So your in luck and will be able to use all GWS power. Yipee
