Hi Paul progress has been a little slow at the moment I have spent some time on the canopy as it looked crap as it was so managed now to recess it into the balsa frame and then repaint looks much better now sad

Hi Adrian

No maiden as yet purely because I am going to change the edf motor to a higher spec and run it on 8s as I think it will perform better .

Reason is that edf technology has changed and its got so much better than it was , there is more choice now and better units on the market .

So watch this space for the update in spec cheeky

Hi Gary,

Did you manage to get this model flying in the end, and if so how was it?

I have the short kit I bought off a guy last year and want to get started on the build this year but want to know how well it flies before i put all of that time into it!

Hi Jack

I have not flown the jet yet it is still in my loft , has been there a while now!!

There is a video on youtube with one that is flying by a man named Brian .

You can also find information on the net but you have to really look . If i get it up in the air this season i will upload a video

Found that video Gary, the jet looks great.

Yeah I've had a search around a few times before but your thread is the only thing I ever seem to find on it!

Hopefully will start on the build over Easter time.
