Question
Hobby Lobby F-18

Well it sure didnt take long for Hobby Lobby to sell out of the F-i8 did it? Anyone know of anyone else in the states selling this one or similar ARF F-18 or even F-16 with LG?

Hate to say it but I was not impressed with HL F-18... the paint job sucked bad... white foam showing through and what looked like 4 different shades of blue...and the aeliron set up is a bunch of 90* turns on picet points with a single servo in the middle... the oddest darn thing I have ever seen on a plane.

Now, she is fast and flys nicely. Rolls are fast without dropping a lot of altitude... but if you crap the motor you will be cutting her up to get to it and apparently there is a thread on here where a few guys have had motors crap within a few flights during a flight... so be careful...

Now to answer your question... try bananahobby... they used to carry it... or try Atlantahobbies... they often carry the same EDF's as HL.

When I get mine I'll let you know what I think about it, as with all things there might be a bad batch or somthing. Some people swear by it and very few disliked it, It is going to be hard to beat my Hobby People F-16 with motor esc and fan for $139 it flies so good slow and fast about 65-70 mph on the stock gear, I used a Bushnell radar gun.

I like that F-16 to but my luck with hand launch stinks
