    not the best way especially at this time of year but to have the other one repaired would take me well in to the new year ,will get it repaired and have it as a back up.

    Welldone homey! such a nice paint as well.

    jimbosflyin .... you never stop to amaze me my friend. One helluva built and paint there. Looks like we're waaaay ahead of schedule for this project. Not just a revamp of our earlier F-16C, but a totally brand new structures and finish, at much easier built with less cuts. Did I say that before?

    Hahaha very funny bro!

    Oh ... I'm just curious. Any of them being asked of how many A's they got in school while they're working now? Well, I don't Hahahaha. And looks like never will.

    You always come up with good humor homey. Love it! Just like BB56

  12. Looks great Andy.

    When you launch I did 60% or a little more throttle, 45 degree angle and it just cruised up at that same angle straight as an arrow.

    Looks like a big one going together Andy,Nerdnick has one with two 64mm EDFs that flies nice about that size.

    68 1/2 inch wing span but with pusher props,im hoping to have better flight times that way.it was to be a foam/balsa build but so far its mainly balsa to keep it ridged enough.
     
  17. I went to a 1800 4S battery to balance mine.
