You're welcome. There are a few other threads under Hobby Lobby F-86 and Golden Eagle F-86.
As I said in the other thread, Their F-4 Phantom would've been amazing- if they stayed in business.
Such a shame as their F-86 and F-16 had a lot of detail.

If your looking for an airframe I know where you can find one.

www.edfhobbies.com

The owner is a great guy and very knowledgable. He wont gouge you on shipping, as it cost what it cost to ship it. He makes nothing on the shipping I assure you of that.

So I ordered another one and building it up pretty stout. I'm going to armor it with packing tape on the inlet, because that's the most vulnerable part of the jet. Face it, you have a crushed intake, it's game over - unless you can find another fuse. Finding spare parts for this thing is impossible. And the kits are about as rare as the Lochness Monster. I did run across another kit with no motor or servos - but passed it up because I thought the price a little steep.. maybe I'm being a cheapskate huh? Oh well, this one I'm building will have full Desert Rat decals with weathering and rivet accents! Also miniwaxed for some extra sheen. 'soul glo' for jets. hehehe. Can't wait to unleash it to the whirled! I really love this jet. It handles like a dream, so aerobatic, and lands so easy - except when you push her luck like I did.

I think it sounds almost as impressive as the Freewing F-86 - given it's size.

The F-86 ZDFLY returns!


My new hobby lobby / ZD FLY F-86 is ready to go. Lots of detail this time around. Wanted to make the resurrection worthwhile...
I just about added rudder control.. but decided against it.

sooooo guess f&%$ what? It crashed. Loss of signal. Sudden absence of throttle and control surface response until AFTER it hit the ground. I'm suspecting the Orange RX. I've really had good luck with these receivers in general, but all it takes is one glitch.. and I blacklist it forever.
Egads, I worked hard on that plane. I managed to attain an assembled replacement for a bill.
My final one.. and that's it! This be my fourth. Wondering if I wasn't meant to be flying this bird!!
