MDC-F14 Tearing up the sky.
If you are into foamies, and even if you aren't. You really should put one of these together. You will have a blast. You can download MAYBZ plans and cut them out yourself, or you can contact BIRDOFPLAY. Bob has a CNC setup and does fantastic work for a great price! Much respect to the designer MAYBZ. The guy should be working for Boeing, Northrup, or any of the other jet factories as a designer. He's obviously got talent!
Below is the build thread. At post #510, Haden has put together a comprehensive build manual based on Maybz's pics and posts.
my setup for the filmed F14 is as follows
Foam professionally cut via CNC by BIRDOFPLAY (Bob)
E-Flite S-75 servo's (2)
HS-81MG for the swing wing mechanism
Spektrum 6100E receiver
Little Screamers Super Park Jet
Dualsky 1300GT 25c 11.1 lipo
Emax 30amp esc
Heli programming for the auto swing wing based on throttle position, but you can also use Throttle to Flap mixing to do the same.
This was my girlfriends first attempts at filming me flying, and I think she did an outstanding job.
This video is set to the Top Gun Theme as per requested. Eddie Van Halen on the guitar of course.
These two video's have far less frantic cuts as did my other two that were posted. I think these turned out pretty decent.

Very nice! I loved the stall speed to vertical shots with wings going into full swept position, and then rolling the plane till it was out of camera range
