I don't know if it is still available any longer or not.


I purchased the kit from the guy who makes them on RCU. I will PM you the link from RCU where I purchased it as well as his email address. If he still has them I am sure he will sell you one.
Good luck....

F-117, Does it come in black?


Finally got the top painted black with Klass-kote paint. I have used this paint before but always with the gloss catalyst. This is the first time I used this paint with the satin catalyst. Went on really nice. Waiting on some decals to complete finishing it up.

Final pics as I got it all done earlier this year.

I lost mine after 4 flights. Ran out of fuel and went dead stick into the woods. Although we saw it going down into the corn field, somehow it made a 180 U-turn and went into the woods. Founds it over a month later after the corn was cut down. The we found it in the woods.

Inside is all waterlogged and some of the ribs and spars are soft like sponges. Not fixable. So I am looking for another kit to build it again

Here is the video. She got lost after this was taken with my cell phone.

F-117 Second One


Pictures of the second one I built. Same flag scheme but grey on the top.

This one had e-flite retracts in it as well as functional rudders. It went in on the maiden flight. It was on final. After putting the gear down it was cruising along and then all of a sudden she dropped a wing and spun in. We think it went into fail-safe which caused the throttle to go down to idle, causing it to stall and go in. We don't know what caused the fail-safe to kick in but it may have been the retracts. The retracts were damaged in the crash. they were sent to Horizon to be repaired. They contacted me, telling me they can't repair them as they don't have the parts. But even if they could repair them they would not trust them. Strange thing is my FW-190 with e-flite retracts went in at the very same spot under the same conditions. We don't think it was the Rx's in those two planes as my all other planes with the same RX's but no e-flite retracts in them haven't done that.


I do have another kit to build flag scheme 3. I just don't know when I will get to it.
