Sorry not since the first one, same as referenced in post 51. When I get the paint and stickers done I'll get some more video.

Finally someone made a J37 Viggen. Have been waiting for this.
I can asure you al that's not from Sweden that it was much more fun when we had Viggen flying over than the uggly (subjective opinion) Gripen. Viggen is power.

I have flown it a few times. I am happy with the way it flies. But the conditions and situation have not been conducive to more video.

I was able to take some pictures yesterday even if I was not able to fly. Here are the pictures.

Man, that's one good looking plane. It's bigger than I thought. That servo looks tiny.

Thank you for the kind words.

It came out 24" by 35" and 13.7oz without a battery. I've been flying it with 1100 and 1500mah 3s packs. It's static thrust peaks at about 16oz so the performance is good but the vertical is not radical.

I'm amazed that I represented the features of the JA37 well enough that you could tell. There is plenty that I would do differently next time. I am still thinking about a good way to represent the thrust reverser's, something that does not mess up the air flow nor weigh too much.
