watching this one close

Its been a while since I have been here. Liquidated a bit of stuff at a swap meet last weekend. I know I want to focus on electric jets mainly. This one looks awsome. Really liked the starmax F-5 esp with 6904 fan and mega 16edf motor, just whish the gear held up for a little more time. I have a flight power evo 5S 3300 mah pack that was just oraphaned. I bet I could use that pack is this jet. Little worried about only a 60 amp controlller but I am sure they crunched numbers and used watt meter etc. When can I get one of these minus the radio, recv, and battery ? I think I want a jolly roger, thats the grey with black vertical fins right?


Thanks

Matt

Yep once I see this bird (come on PETE.... don't hold us in suspense any longer), I too will probably place my PRE-ORDER. Can't wait to see her fly and see some detailed photos from Pete at BH.

From the pictures included that landing gear wont survive more than 6 landings. They could have made scale like main struts insted of those toothpicks for the price. Retracts included are $4.95 units from Hobby City.

I know! I am trying to not keep you guys in suspense here! The fact of the matter is, the FA/18 is complete and ready for testing. HOWEVER, my last bit of assembly on my sample, the manufacturer FORGOT TO include the Sidewinder Missles for the wingtips. So it looks like its missing something if I take her out for a video now. They are being shipped to me now so as soon as I get them, I will get her out for the test video!

I am just as anxious as you all! She is really BIG!

AGGH,


The suspense is killing me, how about at least some pictures and possibly a ship date on these babies. Pictures not just from show, whats the battery bay like?
