Default The Making of Xtreme ARF F100 D Super Sabre

Hi, just received photos from Xtreme ARF of the F100D that they are producing right now, so I decided to open a new thread and post the pictures and hope that you guys post the comments about (bad or good), they told me that each week we will have more development pictures.

Hey Wagner, the photos look good, just a suggestion to the photographer, it would be nice to see (in frame) the entire top view, bottom view, and side views

I believe that they could not do it because they were aligning the plane, as I can see, perhaps on the new batch they will send as you asked

Excellent work.

Wagner, ever heard of a brazilian kit manufacturer in the early 90's called RTF models? I think they were distributed by Orange Blossom Hobbies in Miami.

Very nice touch Wagner, including spares with the kit!
Typically the shipping for small spare parts from China exceeds there actual value!

If I wasn't already elbow deep in my BV F-100, I'd by another airplane, THIS airplane, from you Wagner!

I think you'll do great with this package! Who has been flying your prototype(s)?

Thank you Ralf for the consideration, Unfortunately when I started to work with Xtreme they already had local pilot flying their prototypes and guess what no videos, well so I had to educate them how they have to do in the future, now we have a viper flying in Brazil and we have photos and video, we have a hawk in building also in Brazil and she will fly soon, There will be a F100D 494th fighter squadron and another viper flying on Jets Over Kentucky, I will attend and bring also a new Discuss 2A 6 meters WS. They start to develop a new project the KAI T50 and this one I told them to send to a pilot in USA or EU to test fly it. They know now that they have a long way to go but what impress me the most is that they accept and implement my suggestions also suggestion that I got from the pilots. Most of the research now from scale details or new materials to use on their planes, comes from me, also people there speaks english so this helps on communication.

These extreme ARF are looking better every day, is that airex construction?

Will you guys be offering a LIGHT KIT factory installed option, must say this is looking like European Construction but 2/3 the price.

That being said, what other jets are in the pipe line?

Yes, It is airex construction, now what do you mean "light kit factory installed option"?

I will ask them if they give me permission to post the future projects.

factory light kit like this:



this way you can simply install a controller or if you have a controller that would be nice as well, installing lights is a pain for most people that aren't builders.

Now the big question, will Dog's F100 be shipped in time to build for KY Jets, we're lining up the build crew right now. Pictures look good, can't wait to see it for real.
