Default Cermark F20?

Can you still buy a Cermark F20 .40 kit? What should one weigh built weigh with no engine/radio?

NO, ....but I think the Kanghe version might still be available.

Can anyone recommend a decent subsitute? I want something about the same size that flies about the same with retracts- not really looking for a diamond dust per say.

Found this http://junorc.com/tiger.htm online. Is this the same kit, just being sold by someone else? The measurements are all the same.

This is the same as the Cermark. I know because I had the Cermark ARF and used the directions from this plane.

Go look in Juno's Photo Gallery, That yellow F-20 is mine. Mine is a Direct Connection about 6 years old. Juno bought the rights to the DC planes.

One other little tid bit of insignificant bs. The Juno is an F-5 design and kangke is an F-20 design. The back end gives this away. The Juno has a flat backside representing a twin engine and the Kangke is round as a single engine which is what they were. I personally prefer the Juno design. Looks sleeker

By the way, take a good look at that Kangke Photo on their web page. See something wrong with that picture?

A couple of things seem wrong...the engine is mounted the wrong way, or else they have a left exhaust port engine...it seems shorter. What am I missing? Can you put retracts on the Kangke? How about the Juno? I was also wondering if one were to built this up from a kit, could you omit the faux jet intake humps on the side, and just built it to have a super slim fuselage? They don't seem to add any strength to the fuselage.

Wow! I bet I have looked at that pic a thousand times drooling over it before I had any of them and never noticed or thought about the diffrence when I got the four kits over the years. Good eye!
