It’s been very exciting watching recent developments in the foamie EDF category from Freewing & FMS pushing higher levels of scale fidelity and fligh performance with each new product introduction. But I have not bought one since buying 2 Taft Cobra Jets on sale a couple years ago; simply no room in the house to fit more planes. Finally figured I can hang one up on the wall like picture frame and built one of the Cobras. After much tender loving care correcting loose linkages, unbalanced fan, uneven tail feathers, etc. the jet turned out pretty good. Not a speed demon by any means but fast, heavy and BIG needing lots of space to maneuver like a jet should be. Anyways, I am very excited joining the EDF party so very late and really enjoy the heart pounding feeling each time flying the Cobra jet. Oh and it sounds so good.....

It takes close coordination between lead & chase pilots to make a smooth chase video. Thanks to Denny for flying very smoothly as flight lead. Looking forward to tightening up the formation next time!
