Hey guys we have gotten so many orders for King Tech because of this special that we are giving even bigger discounts and extending the sale until Tuesday. Anybody buying a K80 or K100 will get $200 off, anybody buying a K140 will get $250 off and If you buy a K170 or K180 you get $300 off. For all the people who bought K170 and K180 I have given you an additional $100 off to your credited card. Spread the word if you refer anybody to use we will cut you a $50 check when they give me your name and number.

We also have the New K140G in stock and shipping. I have taken the liberty to upgrade everybody who ordered K140F to the new K140G for FREE. Christmas is early this year lol. I feelin Genrous. I will also give you a free F86 if you rather pay full price and get a $500 jet for free

And to stirr the pot a little I will give $200 off any Jet Cat and Jet Central as well.

took her to a jet meet and put another 6 flights on her. i am up to 21 flights now and the nosegear has stopped locking in place when i drop the gear. i have no airline restrictors and cables are very loose. i just think the nosgear needs a stronger spring. i even try dropping the gear with full flaps flying slow. going to call springaair tomorrow.

Ok then

Use teflon oil in them, the one for rc car shock absorber to see if they get loose and easy on the travel down.

Had a chance to look at one of these kits this weekend and I decided I will have one soon. Mabey by the end of the week. I think for the cash out lay Henry did a great job on this kit. I would like to know what type of struts folks are getting for their kit? I have everything to fly this jet with but the struts so just wanted to sample the field. Thanks.

I bought these as a complete landing gear set [link=http://dreamworksrc.com/catalog/modellbau-tornado-strut-p-2534.html]MODELLBAU TORNADO V3 STRUT SET[/link] I didn't start my build yet but I like the quality very much.

That's not a bad looking set of struts. Has anyone set theirs up with 3" mains or will the wheel wells take a main that size?

Got a nice formation pass 20 seconds into this video flying my Tornado with my buddy's Kingcat. He had to throttle way back to let me stay with him.

you gotta love how slow this thing lands. This is a cross wind landing and is still slow. In a slight headwind it lands like a trainer.
