Excellent job!

You said this is an Aeronaut f9f? Does Aeronaut make a kit or a plan? Where does one buy it?

Ralf's secret revealed...

Actually Ralf cheats by getting a cheap, fullsize jet and just run it through his Shrinker...

Ralle what paper are you using (Schiebefilmträgerpapier), who makes it?

Oh I found a reference, "Air-Color" ? Decal-Folie von ACT ( AIRCOLOR TECHNIK ) ?

Decal sheet paper


I have been using the water slide light (paper) by "TheMagicTouch".

Once I used the paper by ACT, but three sheets cost 6,95 $, one cost 2,50$.

I think the paper by "TheMagicTouch" is much better and I was able to order 100 sheets in a box.

If you send me a corel draw file, I´m be able to print the decals.

Special offer

I just ordered a bunch of kits and got a good deal from Aeronaut. So this is what I can do:

1 Aeronaut Panther
1 Midi Fan
1 Airmail shipping to the US or Canada, insured

For other parts of the world please ask.

complete 400 Euro (about 450 USD)

add 35 Euro for Ralfs decals if you want them too.
The model comes with decals, as shown on the Aeronaut homepage, but Ralfs are nicer.

If interested, please contact me under Please do NOT send PM.

This is a one time offer only, as long as stock lasts.

I ordered the decals from Eagle Strike productions, it's a 1:48 set of waterslides, and I was planning to make an enlarged set based on these, but it looks like you have saved me some work

How to send money for a set? Is Paypal OK?

Your paint and finish is outstanding, think I'll have to settle for a less detailed finish on mine, as I'm planning on actually using the plane without having to worry about messing up the paintjob.

I will try to get video this weekend if the weather permits, I've also fixed my micro camera so video from the cockpit is a possibility Just have popcorn ready Sunday evening

Oh and I might need some hosting space for the video, anyone who can help with that?


Here's a pic of it next to the 18 cell 1950 FAUP battery I use in the Panther:

I'm still building the Aeronaut Panther and have one important question (important for me).
I want to use 14 cells RC2000 on a Kontronik Fun500-21.
How and where did you fix the accus, the one for the motor and the one for the receiver?

Pictures will be helpful.

Thank you,

Hi Axel,

here's how I did it:

I made a battery plate out of 4mm balsaply and glued it to the bottom of the fuselage, I then glued velcro to this plate and to the battery pack to mount the battery. Because I'm using a Hacker B50XL motor I had to mount the receiver battery all the way up into the nose so I epoxied in a little ply plate to mount the battery on, again with velcro.

This first pic shows my battery plate, with velcro for securing the battery:
