Default F-4 bites the dust.

Lucky flight #7 not so lucky.It was the evil 25+mph cross wind at the moment of take off over she went.I really liked the way she flew I will try to repair it.The one side of the wing has the retract mounts broken all so. Before and after shots.If I cant repair it I will consider getting another one.

hope you can fix her flyer...shame it came to grief...just out of curiosity what speed do you think you got with that engine?still deciding if the vmar is worthy of the jett90l or as your case..the "LX"

The plane is a Vmar. It was not as fast as the F-16 but flew pretty fast. I would guess at least 100 - 105. The motor is a freak,with an 11-7 it is pulling 15,7 and sounds like it would go some more.I tried to repair it but is not looking good. I dont no what to get next?I really like glass planes,almost tempted to get another F-16.
