Bob, how would you compare the F-18 to the F-20?

Juno F-18 (aka DC F-18) flys very well ....

flys more like a pattern ship than the F-20 does ---- its just bigger, more wing. Nose up landings were nice.

The one I owned around 15 years ago had a piped ASP .61 for power .... was a rocket with the gear up. Needed more vertical if anything.

Only down thing... and this is by its physical layout ..... ground handling can be tricky. Landing gear is somewhat short coupled. Don't hang a hard left while taxiing if ya know what I mean.
