My F15 weighed 75lbs full of fuel and had only 45lbs of power. It flew very scale like. The results speak for themselves. Also like I said Peter Goldsmith has been Mrtopgun several times and all with underpowered aircraft.


Nice!!!!

Is there a vid of this beast flying your routine?

i do agree on the overpowered, other than more vertical with scale Jets what is the gain?

Top speed is no where near proportional to thrust even with a sport jet.

I used to do USAC competitions and there was a point of diminished returns, same here ... Fluid Dynamics no doubt rhymes if not repeats.

66:1 is minimum
