Has the Tam jets 1/12 scale F-16 been discontinued?


It's not at their online store any more.
Anyone know the story?

I think Tam might be focusing on the 1:8 scale in the near term and his TJXX business, but I am pretty sure the 1:12 plug is being refined and retooled.

Do the 1:12's have dihedral built in? I can tell you the full size version definetley does not! I have one of these in the box, and another on the way I found recently, if they do I didnt notice and it must be subtle...

Cheers,

yeah....they have it....i can see it from a mile away. im currently working on another not yet released chinese arf edf.....and it has lots of dihedral.....just about makes me sick. ive got to fix it (and some other issues....) and beg them to take the dihedral out before production design is finalised....


yes tam....i agree.....F-16's (or any jet unless its scale) doesnt need it....and for some reason, the tam A-4 doesnt have dihedral, ehen it should

I have the plug here, will it come back maybe, but as Brett said lotta cheap stuff out there puts busting your hump in the questionable category. Most guys don't want good now, they just want cheap! Haha. And only first half of first batch had wrong wing, then after that all were set at tams, so maybe 30 or so had wrong wing. And yeah a4 is on purpose, you still have to build a plane for the masses, so sometimes you compromise for more stability. I know a4 can tuck now if your not careful, with droop I'm sure it'd happen way more often. But anyway yeah! I have f16 plug going but its on slow boat for other more pressing stuff, but if for my love of it alone it will get finished.
