I would rather see Rafale than this one. It's huge anyway.

I agree. I've been wanting a Grippen for a while and no-one makes a nice small one. Mind you 68" long is as big as my Byron A-4. I was hopeing for something a little smaller but this will have to do.

Sounds a little big for only a 70mm fan??

Come to think of it - 68" is the same length as the Hayoe F-18 and the Combat models F-18. They are also the same size as Yellows F-18 single, and guys have enough trouble getting those to fly with two 70mm fans or a single 90mm fan.

Maybe this would be better with a Midifan.

What is the fan in the image? Is it the one supplied with the airframe? I have been looking for a larger sized airframe with canards to play with and really like the "Gripen".

Thanks,

Camship

EDIT: I have a programmable mixer that can use gyros just itching to show it's stuff on a Cannarderon..??? or is it Ailerocan?????

AWESOME! Man I can hardly keep up with all these Sapac offerings! Finally, a manufacturer that puts out more than 2 planes a year!

That's one giant foamy!
