Default This guy has the right idea. New jet

This guy called Ridgehogs posted on RCG a while back that he had designed his own 70mm jet. Its small for sure..But a lot of people commented on what a great looking model it is but that it needs to be bigger!!

He is now in the works of making it a 120 size model where a K100G would do it sweet justice.

I for sure would love to pick up one of these when there ready for production.

Here's the original link..http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1702229

What do you guys think..

Looks like the offspring of a Hawk and a Phantom. Personally, if he is going to go through all the trouble of tooling and design and testing etc, why not make it a Hawk OR a Phantom...not both?

I think the Hawk and the Phantom have already been done He openly admits that is an incorporation of at least 3 different planes. Now a days..its pretty hard to design a jet that doesnt look like another jet. But in the end...I personally think it looks great.

No interest here either. Looks what I imagine an F4 would like like in a transformers cartoon. Personal opinion of course. I don't actually mind the majority but I think the canopy/nose section looks awful personally.

+1

I applaud the guy's efforts and enthusiasm, but personally find the results a bit silly and more than a bit fugly.

Much better looking than the Futura. I wish more people would come up with some new designs like he has done. Only an opinion, but this one looks good.

Is that a cartoon scale F-4? Wing to me looks like a mix of F-4 and A-4. The nose and canopy look like its been stepped on and the tail is to small.

Good for him though, for making his on plane. We need more i nthe hobby like that.

To be honest... My first impression when i saw the model was that he had modeled the F3N Demon. Which by the way is the predicessor of the F4

Hi Pilots,

Yes this is a hybrid of a few planes F4, Hawk and a L-39.
Here is a rough shape so far. It looks different to the original image at the start of this thread, only because the delta wings are not attached yet. It may not be everyones cuppa tea, but still fun to design your own aircraft from scratch.

Good on this guy. He can make it any way he wants when it's his jet and then let guys come to him that want it (if in fact he entertains making short kits). I think the idea of trying to please everyone is a good idea only if you want to certainly fail. Too much of an ARF culture exists in RC jets today, the same old jets being demanded, and not enough imagination out there IMHO. That's why I like this effort and hope he builds it.
