"Squall"...hmm interesting. We can assume that it probably isn't modelled off any real jet if it has a name like Squall. I'm betting it's some kind of flying wing or Stryker looking jet with a EDF mounted on the rear.

If it performs like the F-16 then they could have another hit on their hands..."Sport" and "High Performance" versions.

I called them to ask some questions but got the answering machine... just sent an email. I'll share every word of what I hear.

Good points, Splat762. I prefer scale jets but I'm open to a great looking, great performing "fictional" shape too..

Good catch!!

This might be their sneaky way of getting around copyrights or being slaves to scale detail, the same way they call their F-16 the "EF-16"

Actually "Rafale" means "a burst of artillery, gunfire, eg a fusillade"

looks like it might be a good flyer, although you can see how close it's related to the F-16....


maybe they shoulda done an F-16XL instead?


wow, the thrust vectoring unit looks like ALOT of fun. if it's hooked up the way they say, maybe we can see some torque rolls with an edf


count me in...

Lets hope it takes to mods as well as the F-16. If it does, and it looks like it will, I reckon we are seeing the new Foamy speed record holder.
Battery tray looks huge. Delta wing will make it very stable, Nice straight shot from intake to fan.
