    “Got some great compliments”

    I got my maiden out of the way today, I must say, nice flyin’ airframe. Very stable yet still rolls like a drill, it's perfect for beginners and it got some great compliments on how it looked in the air.

    “This is an awesome design”

    Maidened my F35 this weekend and I was wishing I had more batteries, flew like a dream! Initially had to input a bit of up elevator but other than that she was flying on rails. Thanks RCPowers, this is an awesome design, very stable platform for those just getting there feet wet in the parkjet realm. And btw, the hand launch was no problem, I was all worked up about nothing!

    “I had lots of fun with it”

    It flies very stable and very maneuverable. And tail heavy loops are incredible. It flips like the motor is on the tail. One thing I do recommend is having the ESC down in the inlet area. Up in the hatch area there isn't enough air so my 40 amp ESC was scalding. But as soon as I laid it in the bottom it cooled off.
    I had lots of fun with it and the nose is way strong.

  2. “Definitely THE best beginner plane”
    Wow! Just completed a test of the F-35 in better conditions then the maiden. It has to be the best well rounded plane of the bunch! This is definitely THE best beginner plane- it can easily be tuned up or down. The stability and maneuverability work together like no other of the RCPowers planes.

    “Was a little nervous with the F-35 first hand launch but it was great”
    I just did the maiden on my F-35 on Monday. This is my second build, first one was an F-22. Notice I said was. I had four good flights on the F-22, then the last time I flew it I tossed it and it rolled over before I could correct it and now I am almost done with my second F-22. It was pretty windy and I think that was the problem however, I was a little nervous with the F-35 first hand launch but it was great. Did four flights and didn't have any problems. I tried to make sure the CG was a little forward on the first flight and that the control trims were mechanically neutral on the aircraft. There are a several good posts on hand launching with the best advice to have the power set at about 40% and toss it up at about a 30-45 deg angle.

    “Very stable in the air”
    Just got back from the field and the maiden flight of the F-35 V2. The plane is very stable in the air and the landings are a no brainer. Very Cool! Thanks to RCPowers for a great job on the PDF Plans and to all the users for their advice and support.

    “Thrust vectoring is right up there with the F-22”
    Very smooth. Thrust vectoring is right up there with the F-22. I like my CG a little farther back than indicated for snappy loops. Played around with it a little inverted and had no issues looping back up over the front. Kinda like a modified cobra only taking it completely inverted instead of just a high alpha. Probably a term for it but I think its fun to do.
    Total weight with a MegaJet, 30a ESC, and 2200mAH 30c 11.1 v battery Finished was 22.5 oz.

    There is a separate account for the pdf's, you must have made a pdf download username and password in the past in order to get the other rcpowers plans. It's not your forum login info.

    There are 2 different login systems on this website. One is the PDF & eBook system managed by software called aMember, the login is here: http://www.rcpowers.com/amember.php. If you've ever downloaded a PDF or Ultimate Course/Perfect Parkjet System then the account is on this system. Also, if you check the footer there is a link called "PDF Account", it's a link to the URL I just listed.

    The second system is our forum, using software called XenForo. Obviously, you already know about it since you're using it right now.

    The 2 systems were put onto our website at different times and there is no way to merge them (that I know of) without ruining everything, so you'll have to make a second account. The good news is you can make the second account have the same login info so it seems like it's the same. :)

    Even if you have a forum account already, you'll need to make a new account with the PDF system since it's on a different database.
