interesting paint scheme...what is the real plane? Is it an aerobatic team's colours or an anniversary scheme?

Hi all i've just brought one of these assembled and flown as stock, having never flown EDF aircraft before was quite nervous before the flight. I needn't have been at all if flew like a dream, one happy pilot.
Here's the shortened video of the maiden taken on Sunday 7/713 please don't take any notice of the date on the video forgot to reset it.

Thanks for the kind words Bajora and ldlilfan haveing never flown a proper jet before, ie motor and fan on the inside was unsure of the flight characteristics. I have flown plenty of prop types befoe though nitro and recently foamie style aircraft. @ jdlilfan can't help on vendors i brought mine at a model show here in the UK.

I just resurrected this model from the corner of my garage. Been hanging there for YEARS! Installed a Dr Mad Thrust (RCLander) 68mm 4S EDF power system. I had to carve out a bunch of foam to get a 4S 2250mAh in the nose. CG is actually pretty close though! Hoping for a good maiden again, all these years later!

Two flights on my old AMX with a new power system today. She's pretty quick but I am not that thrilled with the sound of the Dr Mad Thrust fan. Unlike most of the other EDFs in the series, the one I installed only uses a five blade impeller. Not as shrill/shrieky as other low baled coun fans I have run but definitely not enough whoosh sound. But then I do like the lower current draw.
