Too bad he's continuing to build and mold his 35 version as a X model instead of F. Seems like more research is in order. I wonder if Kim understands the required visual aesthetics of the American market. That to change and modify the plug is easier than having a room full of unsellable fuselage shells.

Regarding the Hawk 100, I do NOT want a pre-painted ARF. I hope they will sell all composite kits...
meaning a glass fuse that I install the formers into etc.
Thanks,
Bob

I admire your capacity to complete a kit rather than an ARF Bob. My K&A Hun took a long time to complete and when you live in a city apartment for most of the week, leaving an incomplete model about is not good for your sex life!!!

I love the satisfaction of completing a major project but I love to fly more so Ill take mine more ARF please. Especially when they are 2m models. j

This F-35 is a friend offer me the plan and the detail cross section for the former . let me start it very easy , and my friend like the f-35 more than x -35 , but we also have the x-35 plug here , but still have a lot work in this x -35 plug . so that why we have make this f-35 in this moment . but i want my F-20 start early .

Well Kin, I am glad that you are focussing on the F-20. It has been a pursuit of mine to have a quality, high scale edf version for some time.

On the F-35, I can see where the demand is as it will lend itself to so many livery variants when done as an "F". If you finish it as an "X" and you have a few fuse shells lying about, I might grab one.

NICE flying Kin . The A4 look to fly very nicely. I didn't notice any noticeable flutter in the video but I believe I heard it. The rudder control rod should be a easy fix and is very minor. I think the JEPE A4 has turned out AWESOME!!!

That was really nice Kin, very solid looking in the air. You could hear it around 54 and 58 secs fluttering, as Will said simple fix. What was your final flying weight on 6 cells? And what sort of power level are you running at with this setup?

That was a pretty "sporty" landing speed there.

The A-4 is 6s /3200mah and 2.5 kg flying weight ,have 2.1-2.2 kg thrust from a change sun fan ! Landing have a little fast but possible land slow . the wing load is small . so landing are no problem .i am afraid the flutter problem so land so quick ,not the models prefromance next test is different colour and slowing flying and let see how it can slow in landing !!!!
