In case anyone was wondering...Jeff's #2 Lightning still looks as good as ever and flys the Masters pattern with ease.

Thanks Mark, it was great seeing you again. Your flying was fantastic! Our conversations over the years have lead to projects like the one in this thread. I hope we meet up next year.

Marc,

If you send me your email, I will send the plans to you. I am unsure of what other information you might need.

Sent an email for the plans and hope to order the kit soon. I'm slow and not a very seasoned builder, but it's going to be pretty awesome to have a 2m plane again when I finish (someday)

P.S. The lightning is a beautiful plane, I hope I get to see yours in person one day Jeff.

Hi,Jeff!
My name is Hu Peiling. I am a F3A enthusiast from Beijing, China. I have just registered this forum. For various reasons, the love for F3A has been shelved for nearly 30 years. Here you see your "lightning", very much like it. Exactly, I also want to start making a F3A again, hoping to get your blueprint to help me complete this dream. I don't know if I can do it.Thank you!

Hi Jeff,
the Thunderbolt is a great looking airplane! Will plans be available? I'm sure I'm not the first to ask or want to know!

Will,

The Thunderbolt will be available in the future. I have to make a few corrections to the plans I discovered during the build.

I had the pleasure of flying against Mr.Carder and his beautiful planes at the 2018 Nats. Pictures cannot show the high level of detail put into these planes by Jeff! You are a true craftsman with amazing skill! It was a pleasure slumming with you on the Masters flight line all week, and finishing 8 points behind you...

Thank you Chuck! I had a blast flying with you all week. I knew from the first flight I watched you put up that we were going to have a battle. The 2018 Nats Masters competition is one I will remember for a long time. Can’t wait to do it again!

Thank you Mel! Unfortunately Dad didn’t make it. They are having the Mollala contest this weekend, you should go check it out. I know everyone would love to see you.
