What an excellent build. I like your idea of the doublers down the fuz. and you paint job just makes it all blend in.
I also double up on mine but it don't look as cool as yours. Well done.
The CG is spot on at 12cm and mine comes in at around 20oz AUW.
I used the Lil' Screamers Super Park Jet whith a 7x5 prop as I thougth it would be more powerful than the 2212/6 which I have on all my other builds.
I modofied the belly to fit the 7x5 in. I'm happy with my build and
I fly it regularly but it is a little underpowered compared to the other jets.
With the 6mm Deron which I used there seemed to be a lot of flex from front to back from the very rear end to the wing break so I made some "Missile rails" to counter the flex.
If you like the Typhoon You'll love the SU37 and the F22 by Tom.
Cool man your looks great as well. It didnt go so well on the Maiden.But i got her all fixed up now,planning on doing the Airbrush touch ups tomorrow
I was missing around with some dollar store foam.nit sure if you guys have that over your way,im just on the other side of the Pond in Newfoundland.
Im planning on making some Engine outlets on theback.
Say starting Midways on the Aft side of the Prop and taking 60% of a cone shape and cuving it.i test fit a peice and its going to looks SWEEEEET
