New Balck F-22 Jet brought to you By 2Dogrc!

Need a New Plane? I know the answer to that! I have 3 on the build table..but you can always use 1 more!
YARDBIRD RC F-22 Pusher Jet
We were contacted by YardbirdRc.com to help distribute thier NEW Kit! This is a new company to the market, but they do some great work. Rick is the owner and designer, he is a Lear Driver and his wife flies Air Ambulance. Jet planes designed by jet pilots, makes sense! The F-22 is the first plane in a series with a Mig coming Next. You can check out the bio and more info at www.yardbirdrc.com.

Okay Enough history, here are some specs:

Wingspan: 24"
Length: 34.5"
Flying Weight: 9.5-3.5 oz
Channels: 3 V-tail mixing
No WOOD CONSTRUCTION! And Sweet Decal sheet included!
Power: Dualsky 2826-12T Outrunner, 18A ESC, 3s1300 Dualsky 25C Li-Poly

As you can see in the pics, the depron is balck, that is not painted. One Unique feature is the hidden battery compartment! Rick wanted this to FLY and LOOK great!

Recommended Setup

If that link doesn't work..try it with "http:" instead of "https".

I just received mine Friday. Great manual and decal sheet. The foam is cut very clean too.

Can I still get the two free 371 servos in the combo pack?
Plane, motor, ESC, Lipo and both servos for 154.00 ???
That video is awesome, the plane took off right from his hand.
Are those 371 servos OK for this plane or are they junk?

Scott,

I will let 1 combo go like since we are trying to get this bird out flying! I would have to charge $8 for shipping. If you are interested, paypal is sales@2dogrc.com. The 371 servos should work fine! I use those on similar planes without a problem.

2dogrc, I just ordered the combo from your web site and put in the comments section where I get 2 free 371 servos. Shipping came to 6.80,
you wanted 8.00 with the servos so I just sent you an additional 1.20,
please confirm when you get the time.
Thank you very much, this plane looks to be an awesome flyer, I really like the wide speed range envelope on the video, can't wait to see his Mig 29 version too.

Ahh Yes! Mig-29,
There is something really special about flying a light, high power to weight ratio plane. Although Tram might tend to dis-agree!
