So did Dragon get the plane to you or did they hit the wall. They never answer my emails about a jet that I wanted to purchase.

Just got my AF Model 90 EDF RED JET by UPS today
The quality is way better then I thought it would be. I would say it is as good as any of my FMS models. The decals that came on the plane are the Ferrari color scheme like my HSD model. Looks like a 20-minute build if that. If it warms up I will see how it fly's

I was wrong, it took 12 minutes to build. Nice quality, really well-made struts.
I did change out the screws to SS socket head cap screws. The Phillips head screw usually round out over time

I have an engineering or technical quest for you guys. On the front landing gear when it is retracted the steering servo moves with the rudder. When it moves it binds the grey plastic air brake in front, into the side wells which puts a tremendous load on the steering servo. Which in time I would think it would fail due to the load. If, it had like a mercury sw. or micro sw. that would keep the servo from working when the gear is retracted it would really help the problem. Other than that, I guess I could cut the grey panel smaller, so it does not hit the edge and bind the servo.This a quick video that shows the front landing gear working while down. This is before I noticed the problem when it was retracted.
All my other planes have a completely different setup so I have never run into this problem before. It's at the end of the video that you can see the front grey air brake how much it moves side to side. When retracted it hits the side well hosing and binds the servo.
