Been a busy year for me but I still squeezed in a new build. This model is the new T-1 models F22 Raptor. Anyone that knows me will tell you this is my all time favorite full scale aircraft. Its been a dream to have a quality scale F22. The PacificRCjets team all worked together along with T-1 models to produce a fantastic plane. You can get the plane is many different ways. From a raw unpainted aircraft to ARF or even plug and play. The one I have is a prototype and not the production version. The production version has many improvement's from mine. A few I can think of is quick connections to remove the stabs. The panel lines are much thinner and less pronounced on the production version.

Aircraft was fully painted and detailed by me. The markings are all from Tailormade decals. they are all dry transfer and came out great!


The build went great. I wont lie she is a complicated bird. Mine also was not a stock build. I put my typical spin on things like scale missiles from Strictlyscale.com and other things like making them move when the missile doors are open. Also made the pilot move along with all hidden hatch latches with a moving gun door like the full scale. Aircraft has flaps/slats/ailerons' /flying stabs/dual rudders' and dual thrust vectoring. Aircraft also has a functioning canopy and full lights including the formation lights. Working bomb and missile doors are operational and come stock. I added my own mechanism though for the missiles.

Something new I...Continue Reading

This B2 is 14.5 feet wide powered by twin K100s. Has 2 cortex gyros and a steering/braking gyro. After we got everything adjusted she flys great. Using rudder is a must in the turns or it will crash. Yaw is done by the split rudders on the wings.

Here are a few pics of my latest build. Phantasy in blue F84 thunderstreak. This plane was built from a kit and is NOT an ARF. All panel lines and rivets where hand applied. She is one of the best flying scale jets I have ever flown. Love it.

Built my son his first jet. It is the little skymaster/extreme cougar. Fantastic little plane. We powered it with a Kingtech K45. It could use a little more engine but this engine is great for learning how to fly scale and not be overpowered. The maiden went well and its a very easy plane to build. It took about 2 weeks to have her ready to go of just casual work.

Short video of my son flying. I dropped my phone near the end lol so I missed the end of the flight.

Kingtech is now the only distributor for the new up and coming T1 jets.

I have one of the first prototypes and WOW is it a fantastic aircraft. Anyone looking for a big great flying sport jet or even a first time turbine flyer this is the plane for you. Best of all its not very expensive. For around $1890.00 its the best value sport jet out their for a full composite plane this size.

Aircraft comes with gear pipe and tank.

The best part is they dont compromise on quality. Its all hand painted outside the mold so no seams.

Its a versatile aircraft. I love flying it and doing advanced maneuvers yet its docile enough my son was able to get his turbine waiver in one day flying it as his first jet.

This is my latest creation. This is a 1/7th scale F15E built from a FBjets kit. A little over a year ago after Topgun I decided my F22 was not the best aircraft for scale competition. So I sold the F22 and bought the F15E.

On the maiden flight it had a flameout and went into some trees. I rebuilt it and I have had a great flying year with it. Florida jets was great and received a special recognition award. Then came topgun and I accomplished my goal and got first place in sportsman scale class.

The F15E is powerd by a single Kingtech K210 turbine and weighs 75lbs ready to fly. It is complete with moving pilots, functioning inlets, Canopy function , airbrake and hidden linkages on the rudders. I painted the aircraft to be sure it was the right color since the ARFs are never correct color for scale competition.

It has truly been a fantastic year with the F15E
