Can you give me your flight report on it?
there are pros and cons of this airplane. It came out ok for me. I guess you have to bring some kind of prior experience with prop planes (Orientation issues) so your first jet will survive.
one of the cons Ive read is - this EDF cost a lot for what it is. Twin EDF cost twice as much as single EDF ( 2 motors, 2 ESC's, multiple servos, multiple batteries) - I got a deal on my F15 and most of the electronics with it. Even with that, I still ended up with some amount maybe less than others but still substantial.
I only had 3 flights on it so far, its down for maintenance since I want to add a rudder mod (i havent got to it yet)
There's a lot of EDF out there.. you might want to research a little more on the easier jets to put together and fly and cost that allow your budget.
