Video of the Breitling Team L-39's I took last year in Huntington Beach.

Nice smooth maneuvers and good near unlimited verticals Hard to emulate in a model unless one has a powerful lightweight EDF setup.

Some pretty fast flybys too.

A picture of my battery placement with the lightweight inrunner FMS fan (289g) and the CG almost 1cm behind the manual value.

I have a YEP 150A esc in it, not sure how the weight of that one compares with any of the stock FW escs.

I've flown the L-39 with both RT 4500mAh and 5000mAh 35C packs, on mine no lead is required anywhere to get the CG right.

I'm intrigued by this model/ livery, do you think it's better to wait for the ARF version? Any link to their website?. Thank you.
By the way, the L-39 is presumably going to be carried in Switzerland by Hebu :

together with lots of other Freewing edfs ...

L-39 always a pleasure to fly 80 degree weather and not one rain cloud in the forecast

Thanks ... the FW L-39 is a pleasure to fly, a very rugged lightweight everyday flier that tracks like a pattern plane

A bit smaller than the F-4 Phantom but not by much,

The underwing tanks that come with the L-39 are very nice ... but they are quite big and thus draggy.

I decided to look around in my underwing tank drawer to see if I could find something a bit smaller and less draggy ...
