New FMS 29" Skyraider and Tempest


This weekend I got this planes.

I already maidened the Sky raider. She is sweet and fast!

Both are full of details. The motor is bigger than previous minis.

Landing the Raider was soo easy. No issues like the P-51 or Corsair(RIP).

Skyraider weathering


I think the most interesting feature of this plane is the dirtiest engine ever!

I tried to replicate it with an airbrush.

I forgot to update.

Video of my Tempest on 2s 850 mAh.

The plane is very stable. She needed a 5g lead on the nose to balance.

Looks good on the air.

Is not as powerful as the Skyraider but flies quite fast.

With 3s is much faster.

Ailerons are sensitive so I need some expo on them.

WITH A 1000mAH 2S mines still tail heavy -i've added 15g of nose weight & once i get a new set of props i'll retry

Think the C/g should be nearer 40mm not 45...

sorta dissapointed a little but i think i've been spolit by the Jpower bear and the Geebee R3 which fly from the box without issues..

still a pretty lil thing
