Default Jl f-20

Did Jet Legend ever get the bugs worked out of their F20? I remember there were several that had problems when it was first released.
Thanks in advance
Gary

mike and his folk did manage to me a new set of stabilators back then. with the piviot to CP reversed.
i would guess that the new stock since then has come with the corrected tails. do not remember any other bugs with it.

F20 is not in production anymore. If you manage to get an old kit itís better to beef up the tail section so itís not flexing too much. Mike

The tail come area and rear bulkheads are too flimsy. You need to add some carbon fiber strips to reduce the flexing. F20 has a single engine design so the flanges from the engine to the stabs are too skinny and will flex at high speed. Beef it up if you are going to fly it at high speed and turn. Itís not as strong as a F5 look alike sport jets. Would be a big mistake if you are flying this F20 like any Flash or Bandits without mods

Mike.
