Here is another one I did a long time ago and wanted to update the shape and plans. I always wanted a sig kobra which had a sort of similar shape/color scheme and I've always liked the F-100 in thunderbird scheme, I decided not to paint it silver and just leave it white to save a bit of weight. I did the vinyl freehand and it's not perfect, but came out looking ok. Added the panel lines and some titanium/silver for the exhaust/afterburner area since this typically shows through on the F-100 even when painted...

Here are some build photos as I went along. Maiden this morning was really nice, just a few clicks of up and a few of left aileron and it was good to go. I'm at about 26% MAC for CG and it is very docile. Very slow high alpha and good loops and rolls. 4:40 flight time with an 800 3s pack, and grayson microjet V-3 and tbird 18 esc and apc 6x4E prop. 16 ounces auw rtf.

Plans as usual are at: www.dynasoarrocketry.com go the plans pulldown and select parkjet plans

Note that the wing is a c model with a straight trailing edge, if you want a d model you can simply cut the Te perpendicular from the inboard aileron tip to the fuse and enlarge the fuse slot to match. You may be able to move the cg back slightly.
