F-22 with weapon bays and landing gear
Hi. I want to build an F-22 model. I was looking at the RBC F-22 kit.
I'm new to RC airplanes so i want something that isn't too hard to fly and can fly slow easily.
I am going to get a 6 channel radio. How is this ???????????????
Now for the F-22.
I want to put the extra channels to good use. So i want these in my F-22:
-Retractable landing gear
-Retractable weapon bays (for dropping things like foam missiles)
Can the RBC F-22 be modified for these 2 things ?????
And most importantly, is it possible to fly the F-22 slow ?????
To give you an idea, lets say that i can fly the aerobird challenger and the parkzone P-51.

An F-22 by default is almost all lifting surface anyway..so it could probably get slow..But if you're still relatively new to the hobby, I wouldn't even approach an EDF jet. Let alone something "full option". You're looking at a lot of expense..And it's a kit, which means you basically get a box of wood. It also has to be bungie-launched, which means it probably likes to go fast.
Don't want to discourage you from your dreams, just a heads up. : )

Its not so much that you cant throttle back and slow the F-22 down, but in the hands of a low-time pilot, especially a rookie to EDF's, you could be in way over your head.
If you're really interested in starting out on EDF's, I have a suggestion!
You could go ahead and buy one (or two) fans and motors that the RBC F-22 kit calls for, get yourself a Stryker airframe (F-27 made by Parkzone) for about $19.99 at your LHS, and learn to fly on that first.
This way, you'll have the gear you need for your F-22 and you'll gain VALUABLE experience in flying EDF's on the Stryker.
You gotta take things one step at a time man. If you're new, and have relatively low-time on R/C aircraft the RBC F-22 is going to be more than a handful and will probably end up.... *re-kitted* on the maiden...
But good luck w/ whatever you decide to do.
