    Hi all English Electric Lightning enthusiasts!

    It was really nice to have so many good feedback on*Jetpower Fair*and here on the forum. It was not my best flights with the*EEL, a bit stressful to fly the first time in*such a*big event.
    Here is the link to my build thread with a lot of pictures: http://www.jetsofnorway.no/forum/vie...t=535&start=10

    Best regards

    Hi Trond,
    If you were nervous it did not show. Your flight and your model are inspirational. It is the first time that I ever saw a Lightining model with the correct amount of power. Thanks for taking the time to talk to me about this model. I will send you a PM.

    That makes more sense, may have to trade in my Sony Alpha and get me one of those.

    You are a wag, I just looked up the Nikon spec above £500 for the D300 body and nearly £5000 for the lens, I think I will stick with my Sony Alpha for a while longer.

    Come on Mike embrace the future Nikon

    LOL actually the one I used at Jetpower is the mega bucks one, 300mm F2.8 is collecting dust at the moment, too good to sell, still paying off Royal Bank of Mum for the 200-400mm !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Toying with the idea of upgrading the body to the D800, will stew on it for a while whilst consulting the money gods, as I need another turbine for the F5, anyway jet flying today first time in ages happy days, slowly processing the shots from Jetpower will be up online soon hopefully.

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    Nah went for the Sony Alpha because I already had a bunch of AF Minolta lenses that fit the Alpha, I only have one decent lens its a 50mm 1.4 it does not get a lot of use though.

    Sorry to all for hijacking the thread, but it was interesting to see what Lozza uses.

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    Anyone see the Tomahawk Quantum Mono fly? Looks like it should be a lot less draggy than the Futura with the smaller intakes, the top wing removed and at 2.3m span ideal for 120+ engines.

    Nobody? Thought it might have caught everyone's attention being a slightly larger sportjet that'll compete with the CARF Ultra Flash. [&o]

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    Hi Dominic,

    I fly the new Quantum Mono, so far I have about 10 flight on it and like it very much.
    With a (old) P160 SE it has plenty of power. It flys very much like the futura and I think
    it is the perfect jet for aerobatic with a 16 kg turbine. I also have a small futura with a P160,
    but I think the Quantum is the better choice for this thrust class. A P 120 should also work fine.


    Regards

    Christian

    RE: Jetpower 2012

    Thanks Christian. Appreciate the reply. I like it a lot. Good way for Tomahawk to shift some of the Quantum airframes (without that top wing) I guess as I think they were for the more discerning jet owner. High on my list for a Winter build. Next I need to find out what the standard schemes are. Cheers.
