I look forward to seeing a vid of this one in flight. With a dcent blow you could even hover, just like the real thing!

Very nice.

I too, await the video. I have the RM Green plans, but intended modifying it into an AV-8B with only a slightly stretched wing. Am I dreaming to even hope it would stand a chance of flying?

Probably dreaming but I'd love to see you pull it off, it would look great. I 'saw' (via telemetry) a real one glide once. Not pretty.

Nauga,
and a bad case of fan rub
