With that kind of nasty talk, you can delete those plans I just sent JR. It is an orange and black airplane through and through!

Nice build Jeff. Don't tell Vern, but I might have to get a set of plans from you and scale them down about 60%... Something to hone my skills with around the aerodrome...

Jeff,

After the last two weekends, you might want to consider additional color schemes..

LIGHTNING PARTS AND WINGS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!

Just in time for the winter building season, Eureka Aircraft now has CNC cut fuselage parts available for the Lightning. Wing and stabilizer cores and printed plans are also availible. If you are interested in building a Lightning, you can now do so without the hassle of cutting by hand.

Here is the link:

Jeff:

Congrats, hope to see some of these at the events. My build has slowed down considerably. I got the fuse built and am finishing the sheeting on the bottom. Could you post some photos of the internal set up you used for your battery mount/tray.

Thanks,
Ed

Thanks from me also, Jeff
That will help with the layout. I was guessing that where things were placed for bal and was very close.
Final will depend on motor. Am very close to placing an order to Don; just wanted to pick up the new printed plans to see if I needed to make any changes and decide if I wanted to cut cores or go with Don's.
Looking forward to a great build next few months.

Hi Jeff,

my name is Marcelo and I am from Brazil. I was looking for a f3a airplane that can be built by the plans in my humble shop down here. Then I saw your airplane – it’s just great !! Talk about Concourse de Elegance !!! I don’t have much money to so that I can afford expensive models. So scratch built is my only option (but I like it). I fell, with all these informations, I can build the Lightning.

Is there any possibility of you send me the plans so that I can built it ?

Thanks a lot Jeff

Marcelo

Hei Jeff,



Thanks a lot for the plans!
They are a true work of art and engineering. It's very kind of you to share this great work.

Jeff, I already copied the entire thread but I noticed that there are some pictures laking in the begining of it. Could you send them to me or repost in the thread if possible, please.

Thanks a lot again !!
