Never fly an A model anything!

from memory, the Jet Legend Stuff is for turbine and not EDF and is built heavy.

I can't be sure but everything needed mod for EDf including duct changes and very powerful set-ups. I might be confused with Fei Bao but that was my recollection. j

J, you are correct jl is not designed for edf and will need work.

Pete, f-15 is 1200mm long with wingspan of 900mm.

The single 90mm version could run on 2 good 70mm version, but that model is planned for next year after the f-14

The best in EDF since 2005

LOL Sikky! While its a nice kit, I have to agree the budget 64mm fans and little outrunners are hardly a high cost item, and the Suppo style ESC's are something many would avoid. You can buy an HET F15 with their 70mm fans and 2W20 motors for 330 bucks. The nice thing about the SM is it takes retracts for those who want to ROG.

That is a really small plane. Much smaller than I anticipated. For $450 I seriously hope that comes with everything needed to finish and I mean EVERYTHING. Even then I think that might be way out of the ballpark price wise. I'm in Canada and we don't really have a recession the way the US does right now but I do have to agree somewhat with sikky.

That seems a bit extreme for something so crazy small. Although with the right paintjob, full retracts installed and the rest of the gear it's doable.

Please make sure to offer an airframe only version so we can equip the plane with our own gear.

Can you get the A-4 just primered no paint,that would be fine,also what material are they using to glass these epoxy glass or poly I know it takes a good week for epoxy glass to set.

Im sure it can be ordered in primer (gel coat).. Their heli's can be, so I dont see why the edf jets wouldnt be..

They use good quality european epoxy on both their helis fuses and the EDF jets..

I know Kin is working hard but are any A-4s going to leave the factory today as planned. A stumax 90 would be a beautiful partnership !

Keith,
I found out that a total of 5 models have shipped so far, they are now making to order pretty much and the lead time is 20 days (approx).
The unpainted (the provide it in while gelcoat as a primer) will be less, i'm just trying to nail down how much exactly...
