You call it criticism, It was more like an attack that no one seen coming.
We have a guy like you at our field, needless to say everyone avoids him.
Your a pro artist, but you get criticism everyday at your field? I wonder why?
Do you ever wonder why?
Please post a picture of your F-100.

Jofro, men don't put others down to make themselves feel better. I pays my bills, I builds my planes, I don't expect some grub to critique my work.

It shows much of your upbringing and the poor examples that were set for you. Your mother should have taught you that should you not be able to say something nice you should not say it at all.

Don't get upset it's just a critique.

Right on VTOL! A SCALE paint job of a real warbird! Critique...Ramblings...Gutteral Gibberish aside, your paint work appears first rate and I bet the pilot of the 1:1 plane would be honored to know you took the effort to replicate his ride! Can I send you mine to paint?

thanks MYC!

Hey anyone that has this model flying can you measure the neutral point of the front tips of the horizontal stabs to the bottom of the fusealage? I set it at what the manual recomends (rear TE at center of the servo) but it looks like it has a bunch of "up" when set that way? Also how does it fly at the recommended CG? 265 MM from the LE next to the fuse...... Mine is about 1/4 inch in front of that with a XPS 5000mah 65C 6 cell.....it's almost a full inch in front of that with the XPS 65C 6800 Mah

thanks in advance

Hi, never mind the colour, I still hate it. My stab LE is 25-26mm from the bottom line of fuse when looking from the side as pic shows. CofG is another story, I fly mine at 280mm from the LE but it's obviously different as AUW is 10 pounds and using probably the most powerful 12S set up there is at some 4.5 Kwatt. It is a beaut to fly, you'll love it, good luck Joe.

thanks for the stab measurements....that is just how mine looks also.
I wieghed mine with the batts and I am right at 8 Lbs
If you fly at 280 mm back than I should be just fine at 260
thanks again

Took my Sabre for a joy flight today, and while looking at it I got tired of my colour scheme so I will repaint it to SAR fluoro orange/navy blue. Something different again, Just compacting the vid. loaded later, Joe.

My camera guy keeps on telling me that he can't see a thing in the view finder so I always tell him just follow the sound and camera will do the job. At 70+ he did pretty good job today but I flew the model bit easier for him to follow it, Joe.

After the flight I did this short static vertical test still having plenty of juice to climb 4.4kg model from my hands. Overall I used 2100mA from 4Ah packs. During harder flying I usually use 3000mA in 3 min. as this unit draws up to 110 amps on full bursts, Joe.
