    everyone that has built this plane has told me they played around with th cg to get the flying style they wanted but stock cg is about 2"-3" in front of the motor mount but ask f1 and see wher he had his cg.

    I've got cg 2 3/4 inches in front of the motor mount but 2- 2 1/5 would still be ok depending how your flying style.

    Very nice maiden F1. Crazy maneuverability. I planned to put on Alerions but there's really no need with this little speed demon. Love this plane.

    You are right, very nice plne. The f16 design may have one up on the mig because the jmw f16 edf has exactly the same feel. The tv adds so much performance to it.
    Thanks, Btw!

    I had a Skype video chat with Jay Rothwell (Boxermad84) today and flew his excellent f16 profile plane. Pretty Neat!

    very nice flying greg is this the second time you have took this plane out because it looks like you have been flying this plane for a while. the live skype just took this to another level, really enjoyed it and hope to do it again with any one who can join in on the 28th

    I really enjoyed it too Jay! The plane is sooo easy to thrash around! Very nice. We'll do it again soon-maybe when I do the su30. Actually, I have the Eurofighter plans here.....

    i went out today but only managed 3minutes of flying as the wind was to bad, look really good with the green underbelly and black contrast.

    Very nice, Jay! Must be extremely easy to see with the contrast. Almost too nice to fly!

    ok so here are the build pics, may help some body with the build.
    first trim the right and bottom of the pages
    then place the first page overlapping the second and so on.
    cut the plan parts out.
