nice job tim

looked good, real tough to choose my favourite jet now.

Just for the uk guys expect them in the shops next week as they was shipped this week

I can't believe you think it is more stable than the f-16 that things flys on rails.

Tim,

I noticed a few things about her:

1) the camo works well when you got low
2) loops are nice
3) she rolls
4) your flying field is more scenic then mine


Did you add WBPU to the bottom to protect it from the pavement during landings? Looks nice, whens the stateside release?

Well the small tailerons seem to have a lot of authority... flies well considering that those are the only control surfaces

Looks really nice. I can live with the pushrods as they will not be visible once in the air. Finally one that is not a Navy version

Well, I ordered one from Airland Hobby yesterday and it shipped today, should be here Wednesday if the tracking number is correct. A couple of members from my local club have been having great fun with their Kyosho F-16's. One flew his in 20 Mph winds (gusting to 35) it penetrated the wind with superb stability. He landed it and said he didn't have any fun in that wind and wasn't going to risk it again. It really hauled downwind ha ha!

I decided to get an F-16 but found this thread while doing research. I've always loved the F-4 and that video above sold me on this F-4!

I can't wait!

Yes I used WBPU on the bottom of the airplane. In more places than most. Both the fuse and the wings. There are two contact points on the wing bottom. They are currently flying into LHS near you.

Mine arrived today! I've unpacked it and I'll start building tonight. It looks real nice. I was worried that the tan color in the camo scheme looked more pink than tan but fortunately the pictures don't do it justice. It's a nice shade of light brown, very camouflage-eey! Looks like a very easy build.

At Lagoon Valley in Pena Adobe Park, the city of Vacaville let us set up a runway off in a corner of the park, and also at the Travis AFB Aero Club. The aero club has moved and the field is closed so the base commander gave us permission to use the closed runway and ramp.

Oh this is cool, the decals set gives you the choice of US, German, or Japanese Air Force!
