90mm F86 on Nitroplanes


Hi All,

I just found this 90mm F86 on Nitroplanes. It's listed under Exceed RC but I can't find any references anywhere else on the web. Is anyone familiar with this model? If so, how ddoes it fly and how is the performance?

It's pretty pricey, so my thought (hope) was that maybe this is a new super-high quality release with a good powerplant!

I think they have the wrong price listed...sounds like that's the price for PNF.

The fuse in parts are less than half that price, now the retracts are almost 100usd

Looks like a nice jet, I've been waiting on an EPO F-86 90mm for a while

I wonder why they don't have "THe Huff" in the ARF version? I have the Skyblazers in the 70mm so I'd like to get the "Huff" in 90mm. Just like to get the ARF though.

Is this airframe available under another name? I'd like to see some build and flight reviews before pulling the trigger.

Speaking of triggers, on a scale note - has anyone ever seen an F-86 with Sidewinders before? I wasn't there, but I'm pretty sure air-to-air during Korea was just guns, guns, guns...

Made by A-RC aka Andy Chen, who also makes the F/A-18 90mm, 70mm. Recent rep has been well designed flight characteristics but iffy electric component quality.

Just curious, but what makes this more than $70 better than the FlyFly F-86? Just the EPO vs. EPS?

I see. I find it funny that foam models are more expensive than composite ones now. Maybe it will be on crazy sale next black Friday. Anyways, back to the plane.
