Yep, actually it's made by FMS and imported by Hobby Lobby, Nitro Planes, PWS and a bunch of other distributors. A new, updated version with many of the mods that guys were doing is on the way by the end of this month or next so everyone is sold out temporarily. I wouldn't get mine until sometime between August and CHRISTmas so more than likely I will only be flying my 90mm and 64mm Starmax F-18's this summer...and playing a lot of golf, LOL!

Anyone knows where CG is on this Airfield/FMS F-18?
Also, do not confuse it with Art-Tech or Blitz/Exceed/Starmax/MaxJet ones.

Will a 4s 2200 fit in this new F18 from Nitrojets? Or will I have to do a serious hackjob to get it in there? Thanks!

they show the cg being from the back intake holes on top to the front of those little vert fins, i have a 15 c 2200 3s and I put it behind the nose wheel and the cg is at the extreme rear line. they say the lipo is 150 grams, I have a 3s 2650 30c coming which is 240 grams so we shall see

on the flight review they said it can handle 2s - 4s but Tony also mentioned his 1300 4s lipo was a little too big, so might have to trim it down.

Thanks KaptnKurt. I got mine from ebay guy leadershobby for $69 shipped after 8% bing cashback. Got it in less than a week from HK. As usual I never opened the manual sheet included thinking it's useless as with most of these products but yes CG was there when I looked at the last picture.
Mine was missing plastic stearing servo arm attachment but on the other side included two edf units, factory mistake I guess so I won't complain at all. Won't use landing gear at all or wing attachments, being Blue Angels paint job looks kinda funny with it hanging down in flight. Great looking model after all compared to MaxJet with whole nose and canopy section being rather ugly, at least to me.

I agree, I like the looks of this jet over the Max Jet offering, but then again Ive always liked the original hornet over the superhornet anyway.

I got the Angels kit also the droptanks were giving me a left rudder effect so I left them off. And for that nose wheel servo arm, its really easy to fab one. On the flight review video he shows what it looks like.

Flew the heck out of mine today! Flies great on 4s, nice speed and nearly unlimited vertical. This jet also looks really good in flight. Got some pics and video, will post soon.
