Cheers buddy! I'm rebuilding one now with thrust vectoring, meaning a part of tje rear horizontal fuselage will be coupled with my elevons and should provide me an awesome authority!!

Not sure yet about the color scheme, black fuselage for sure but the rest will see

Nice one too Kronikpilot!! I like your color scheme!
This is what I'm looking for my new build doing rolls and loops... Something different then just regular passes, since I have a 1900 kva with additional thrust vectoring I should be able to have much more authority on rolls and loops this time...

I love this build as well! so simple to do and fly really nice!

X-31 Version 3


So here it is the beginning of my new X-31, this time I opted for a kFm4 wing type with the steps out of 2mm Depron, I also decided to do extra thrust vectoring control sufaces that will be linked with my elevons... Should provide me a lot of authority on manoeuvers!

The build should be assembled by the end of the afternoon and maiden probably tomorrow...

hey guys, amazing looknig plane, no doubt any chance you could put the planes up soon and i personally think the black Fuselage and orange wings looks the best. Looks fully aerobatic, my type of plane

Yes James but unfortunately I don't have that color available at the moment... Well I completed my assembly, remaining to be done is control surfaces and electronics installation, maiden should happen tomorrow...

I may have to add a triangle piece on each side to close the gap between the step and the motor bay... We'll see first how it goes like this.

kFm4 mods


I decided to add a triangle everywhere from the back of the steps to the motor mount... I guess it will feel better now.

When you get to the thrust vectoring please get some close up pictures.
