street price should be around $199.99. This airplane comes with the EDF, Motor, 2 servos, and ESC.

I will hold my thoughts, until I get her up in the air.

great looking F-4 but it needs
something

1/ ailerons + elevator instead of only those tiny tailerons
2/ better size fan for 500 g AUW, 60mm fan would be better
and it look like there is room for it

i guess it looks decent besides the stabs, but thats a easy fix. i still really like the A-6 though i think they hit the nail on the head on the looks of the A-6.

Plane Crazy!!!
Not really digging those obtrusive elevon control rods on top of an otherwise beautiful airframe.

Kyosho really needs to copy Alfa on the hidden/flexable control rod design... very subtle and intuitive...

Also, looks like a 200% FSA....

Not negativity. We're slowly learning to expect more from a $200 foamy. Looks nice. Good luck on the maiden.
