Glad they did some descent gear and didn’t just use cheap wire struts

Where did the TV go?
And no flaps! I sure hope it can land slower than what was shown on the Motion video.

I'm very proud of this project. One of my last collaborative efforts with my dear friend Alpha. I hope you guys like the livery. My retirement flag was flown on AF-1, so it's a very special jet!

Very good looking scale F-35. Guess the flying weight is so much more than V2, the TV was opted out. He was flying on a 5000mah pack too

Pretty sure someone along the way will experiment on flaperon setup for this bird

The power plant's specs looks very impressive. 6s 70 Amp at 5.5 lb thrust: https://www.rc-castle.com/index.php?...roduct_id=7558

Thank you Tony for the good work! Seems you should have more time developing rc EDF jets from now on

You did a great job! I am really impressed and have added it to my list! I have seen the C model over my place several times and just last week got to see the B model over my place too! Saw the A flying at Nellis before it was "set free" to fly to its full capability! What an amazing plane! So glad to see it available now and in a really good size! 70-80mm planes are the perfect size!! Also the Livery is exactly as it should be! Several nations helped in development and will be flying this bird. Having all of the flags on the side are a good thing because it is what the plane is all about! Good stuff!

With all the sales of the older freewing 70mm F-16 (just assuming since lots in my field have them) and the new FMS/E-Flite 70mm F-16 I was wondering when everyone would catch on and make some more, these should sell like hot cakes.

Perfect size for most SUV's without having to take wings off etc ... and still big enough to wow the crowds.

Good work guys she looks outstanding, wonderful colors and detail for a 70mm!

Did the main gear location get moved forward a bit to help allow a smooth rotation?

I had the v2 years ago and loved it. I am OK with no TV, as it was something that never centered really well and tended to make the plane fly a little off on straight lines.

I really love the idea of the big top loading battery bay. The lower belly bay was the worst. I will buy one of these.

First, great job!
Second, I see in the video it appears to work on grass pretty good.

My question, how is the spring tension in the gear? Just asking because sometimes it can be stiff (LOL) and help to cause a bent front gear if you don't grease the landing.

Thanks!

You all have brought a lot of good planes to us. Though some of us may grip and moan about this and that not being added or scaleness of a plane (which I am also guilty of) ,we are all appreciative of the work you and motion have put into making our wishes come true. Thanks !!!
