I hope they produce the F-18 in Gray also. Nice looking plane. That 71 inch P-51 will be sweet. H-9 drop theirs which was around the same size

Well, according to their 2007 catalog, the price is the same as the F16 - $399 which includes the retracts, etc.

Click the Free Catalog link and open up the 2007 pdf file, it is there. Only available in BA scheme right now.

Fellas:
One of our gang came out with a Hanger 9 F-16 yesterday, came complete with a Evolution engine and servos. Had a chance to examine the construction, looked better than I could do with a kit with lots of years of experience. All he did for the day is run the engine and taxi, so no flight info yet. Had trainer tips things on the leadilng edge of the wing which he will use for the first few flights. Don't expect much speed from the Evolution engine equiped wih a 3 blade prop, but will be interesting. See ya ENJOY

Air up and Spring down is the way to go... That way the default is DOWN

FA-18 looks pretty good...

I was at Cermark yesterday and got a look at the new F-18 prop jet. It looks like it should be a nice plane and will probably become a popular model. Randy at Cermark says it is the same length but it 'appears' smaller than the F-16's because the fuselage has less girth and is sleeker. The wings are higher AR, it's lighter, and it's over all less stubby. I would think it would be marginally faster model with the same power compared to the F-16 and nicer on landings.

They also had their new P-51 there and it is a nice looking model. Fiberglass fuselage and built up wings, the detail work and finish is done well. It will likely be a good seller. Motors would be a .90-1.20 2-stroke or small gas/ignition (says Randy). It's a relatively big model.

I like that mustang too... if they are getting that through the same factory making the F-16 and F-18, it should be a real nice aircraft

the Gray is their new scheme on the F-16 but the GD has been out for quiet a while, I've had mine a year, they just never advertised it for some reason so everyone thought they only had the Thunderbirds.

April or May as I recall. They only had one in their show-room and it looked like they were testing it. You should have seen all of the F-16's in there.

Oh... and no BF-109 yet. Due in soon. They're also re-releasing the profile Lil' Banshee new and improved. That was a nice little 3-D plane...just waaaay off topic
