Thanks Pat

Would something like this suffice?

The Raptor was down field landed and I was too lazy to get it when I was switching over to the F15 Eaglend on throttle up the Raptor woke up while the Eagle went airborne. Quite the scene when you can't power down the one in the sky and the one flipping around on the ground with the prop spinning is 50 feet away.
wow that's crazy! but what's crazier is that u left it plugged in after flight and out was going to sit there till you were done with your other model... not worried about lipo discharging to much?
anyway i'm glad no one got hurt! those props will slice flesh with no hesitation!

i got cut 17 Times in that accidental half a second wot while on my lap.
but i'm glad your plane flies as good as u wanted it to! video soon?

In er9x you can change the name of each model "slot" to whatever you wish. It is not just a number.

Also, if you use a DSM module in the 9x with er9x model match does work.

Edit: Just wanted to clarify that the model match only works with a module from a radio and not the DM9 JR module spektrum used to sell.

This is not the greatest video, but I believe that it demonstrates the performance well enough. 4s performance is great, 3s is lackluster, but that is due to the lower kv motor that I purchased. More performance could be realized by selecting a higher kv motor.

Now that I am getting suitable performance, I can go on to mod the tail a bit in the area of the thrust vectoring tabs. I am getting alot of flex in front of them and it seems to be giving me some problems at high speed. I believe adding some carbon reinforcement will take care of alot of it.

Hey guys...I know this is the F-22 thread so you may be biased but which of Tomhe's planes flies the best if you could only build one! Thanks!

ive only built only two models, f-18 and f22.. its hard to choose because they fly completely different. the f18 floats less but is faster and it looks awsome in the air!! the f22 is soooo stable!! ive flown in 15-20 mph winds and it kicked a!! but i think the f22 wins out of the two. i also would like to hear other opinions.. crxmanpat, im sure we'll hear from him as he has built all of them and like 100 other planes

Only built 2 here . SU 34 and F 22
F-22 is the best all around performing air frame. IMO

I've built them all, some numerous times. Hands down the F-22 is the absolute best flier of them all.

The Eurofighter and F-18 are close seconds.
