Discovered by a friend moving into a house in Madrid, in a far dark corner of the loft. BNIB yes, but the box was badly water damaged, obviously up there for years Amazingly the contents were perfect, even the large paper plans.

Should be reasonably easy to convert to electric...

I had originally buit this years a go and it got shelved due to power system problems, motors seizing up etc.. Any way, now time to revive it. Originally intended to duplicate the 'Agressors' I am now going to add some red stars, hence 'F15ski'
So far, two Lander 64mm plastic EDFs fitted. Amazing value, I have bench tested these on 4s and they are well balanced. However I don't think I will be using 4s in the plane, 3s with two fans should be enough!
