    Oooo you got it bad too! Now just what did you have in mind for that NTM bad boy?
    I"ll keep you in mind with the lawyer thing. Maybe we can get a group discount if some of the other guys sign up! WJ.

    Wow, never knew this scaleness (one more for the dictionary :D) could be done while keeping the build simple. Awesome job!
    BTW the servo for the leading edge slat might actually help counter the weight of the motor in the back, just a suggestion :).

    I have this F18 in mind. Jay said thats what he built her for. I love the F18 had the RCP F18v2 wich i loved. It got damage over the winter something fell on it. Great flying plane i also have this F15 Mk2 that i am currently building it may see action in that.

    Yup, put one in the F18v2 but she hasn't been maidened yet. Got another for the Arrow which I am just finishing. I think this spring, if it ever comes (got another dump of snow Wednesday) I "ll be busy with the 3 builds this year and the F18 from last year. Looking forward to the Mossie. It's gonna be my first twin. Cheers, WJ.

    I built my f18 with the focal price 2700kv motor, not the ntm. The ntm might be to heavy to counter all that weight in the back. I'd use the ntm in the f15 mk2.

    I agree with Jay! We flew our prototype F15 Mk2 with the ntm 2700 and you could not feel the weight at all, whereas the f18s are a little more finicky with weight.

    I'm assuming you'll post the final plans on parkjets as well? If that's the case you got my donation for the hard work. That bird is really great lookin. I'm already thinking about the paint job...

    Ahh got ya I was mistaken. I have a 2200 that might fit the bill for now until I get one of those focal 2700's. The prop drive will be set in the f15 than.

    Hmmmm...I was thinking of building two of them
    I'm sorry I did not realize you have donation tab on your homepage. Even better! I was thinking of building the first one and go with blue angels theme. Second one I will glass with water based resin and I'll try to get creative with graffitti. Before rc airplanes that used to be my passion...now I can combine both of them in one, this one shall be the crown jewel in my colection.
