Default Cyclic's F-20 maiden??

C'mon now, we're waitin' on this maiden that as far as we know, has not taken to da sky?

The Jett 90 and the Cermark 60 F-20 is the PERFECT combo!

You're going to love that motor when it breaks in!
Mine is gittin' better by da day!!

Nice try! Still hanging on the ceiling. The weather/winds here have been awful on the weekends. When its like this, I just bring out my junkers or that little P-51.
However I am replacing the engine on my DC Tigershark with Jett .50. I fly this regularly. Will that work for you?

Sure, that'll work!

I am ordering the DC F-20 next week, well, because I already have a NIB Jett 50 looking for a nose!

Three guys here have this plane with a Jett .50 and a couple with a YS.45. They both go around 125mph which is great for this altitude. However the YS.45 is a bit more of an adjustment pain than the Jett.50. Then ad a 9/7 or 9/8 apc, some 30%heli fuel and this thing will move! My F-20 had a Mvvs.Q500 which was suppos to haul this thing around with the others. It didnt. Also consider Kavan wheels.
*They are great when you come in to hot and need to slide sideways before hitting something. I also used Hobbico Retracts. It all works good. I also made custom decals which call it what it reall is, (An F-5E) The back end does give this away. Dual engine exhaust where as the F-20 was a single engine and has a round back end. Later-- Something else here i forgot
* Glass up that front end, The jett will really stress it out. Also do not use basic (great planes) engine mounting bolts. Need to find some high stress bolts somewhere. The guys here keep breaking them. (really)
