What if ordered through Tower or LHS?

If it's from the ground up, then how come it is identical to the FMS version sans the RX and paint variation?

And just like we did when we released the Viper and F-16, we’ll be sure to let everyone know that the F-15 wasn’t our own design during the live Q&A tomorrow (because, contrary to what some may believe, we are not 'hiding' that fact).

Thanks Jason
If your LHS ordered today, or you pre-ordered via www.TowerHobbies.com or www.HorizonHobby.com today, you should get one. However, the first shipment is almost sold out (these are going FAST!), and there are a lot of LHS that still haven’t ordered yet (so if you’d like to get one through your LHS, please tell them to get their order in ASAP if they haven’t already! Unfortunately some stores wait days or even weeks to order new releases, and they and their customers can miss out on initial shipments because of that delay in their ordering!).

....


The great things about that Eflite F15 are.

1/ easy, stable to fly , great flight envelope, slow, fast, vertical, speedy, short take off.

2/ can take off with gears, hand launch, dolly :-)

3/ cheap to fly

4/ can fly in local Park, no need big runway.


Great .

Depends on how you fly?
WOT or controlled Throttle?

The flight time formula is
Capacity × 60 / amp draw.

So my guesstimate, based on that formula , is
2.2 * 60 / 37 amp .... roughly 3.6 minutes WOT.

3-4 minutes depending on throttle usage

3-4 minutes with aggressive/mostly full throttle flying, 4-6 minutes with some mixed throttle use (including some low power cruising), and maybe upwards of 6-8 minutes for guys that only low power cruise (yes, there are some of those guys out there!)

LOL!!! I totally misread that one. My bad!

I watched the replay of the F-15 Q&A. I felt as if you were almost speaking to me during that part

I am looking forward to your from the ground up jets and Warbirds here in 2019. They have been way underrepresented versus civilian planes, and I say this as a guy that has bought a number of those civilian releases.

Sometimes I am that guy. I am sure you can relate or vice versa, you just want to have a relaxing flight after slaying dragons all week when you take your planes out.

Better choice.

He said on the live Q&A that even some 4S 2200's won't fit, but their recommended packs will.
