    The pleasure is mine Hami :) I feel like I'm still learning here and lack of things that I need to catch up with most seniors in this hobby.

    Heeey rodrigo my friend. My highest appreciation for your kindest words. I don't think I deserve any of the complimentary as all projects are done by three of us. Jimbosflyin posseses so many ideas, and Wildthing has just become a new rising star in designing planes. I will just follow their traction to have fun with this hobby :D I enjoy so much working with them closely.

    Thanks BB56. One thing for sure, we wouldn't come to this point without you in the very beginning ;)

    I did some fluid dynamics tests on both KF2 and KF4. According to the simulation, KF2 gave some lift to a certain point but I didn't go through lift to weight ratio, under zero angle of attack. I still have no idea if KF2 gives enough lift of not. On the other hand, the simulation didn't show lift for KF4 under zero angle off attack.

    I didn't run through more parameters but it's interesting results shown. May be, we didn't notice that KF2 needs slightly positive AoA while KF4 needs slightly higher than KF4.

    The graphs showed that KF4 had sort of equal laminated airflow on top and bottom surface that may give better stability as top and bottom airflow "locks" the wing like on rails.

    With such minimum numbers of parameters entered, it could misdirect the results though. Anyhoooo, .... it's just plain fun playing with it :)


    So, this F-2A brought me back the memory when i was still around 5 yo, and my Dad brought home a Tamiya kit of F-16A, and constructed it in front of me as I couldn't do anything yet other than watching him with tons of excitements. Rodrigo was so right. It's the slender plane of all time. At least for my Dad. I also remember when he finished it, we both were looking at it for minutes after he put it on the dining table :D

    Then I started playing Falcon 4 PC games (I don't consider this as a game because of ultra realistic avionics and gameplay) during high school. And now I continue to play the Falcon 4 BMS on my notebook without me never complete any theater/mission because I couldn't play with more than 10 mins :D LOL. Here's an official video of the Falcon 4 BMS 4.33

    Nice paint Hami I'll try to make the tanks slightly longer. It has the scale width but needs to be lengthened a bit

    No room for an EDF version Hami,but the original PI F-16C was converted to an EDF having room for it by Eric.

  18. The whole structure of the plane would need to be changed, in one sense Bimo would need to start completely from scratch.
