This Five Easy Piece F-15 EAGLE has the same kinda tail-feather set-up as I did on the FEP F-14 Mach TOMCAT.
Carbon Rod and straw hinge.
Also a KFm4 wing.
I need to correct some pattern flaws before I can pot a PDF of her.
I over cut the motor slot, oversized the forward nacelle pan and undercut rh main wing to fuse slot.
I'll have all of this fixed when I post the pattern on my media-fir site later.

Thank you.
The way it flies it reminds me of the Scott Lott's Mig-29.
The ESC came loose on the first toss so I landed and re-secured it. That cured the balance problem and she flew fine.
I'll have free PDF plans up on my Media-fire site soon.

An earlier Eagle Sortie before bad weather.

Before the Storm.mov (3 min 36 sec)


She is so balanced that I can put her in the air at 40% throttle and she will just fly away twelve feet or so from the ground straight and steady and I do not even touch the controls till it's time to bring her back around at the end of the field.
