The original blog of tomhe with plans and tons of info...
6mmFlyRC Profile F-22 with Simple Thrust Vectoring

Actually the first RC plane I built. Opted to build and fly the OSB before this one though. So after just a couple minutes and a greatly misjudged outside loop with the OSB, the F-22 was maidened and put through the paces.

In hind sight, I could have jumped right into this plane and been fine. Minor adjustments to control surfaces and I was chasing birds.

Sadly, I did not take pictures of the original build, but did get some video of flights and post repairs. I really liked the black foam contrasting in the sky.

After 3rd hard crash, decided to re-cycle the parts into another horse (actually raptor) of a different color.

So some winter months of pc trainer, RealFlight 6.5, fun builds! First built F-22 then OSB, One sheet bi-plane. Both great Flyers!!!!
The profile F-22 was more fun, but the OSB was beautiful!

The beauty of the foam board builds, re-use the electrics and you have a brand new plane for less then $3 rebuild.

Now 2 new F-22's 66% & 100%.

After building a foamie mid motor pusher Jet (F-22), 3 others that are just chuck gliders, decided maybe I should actually start the flying part of this hobby with something that could be perceived more as a trainer for my first actual flight.
