Not really a build with these BVM pnp's. All I can say about it is wow...they did an awesome job on the Bounty Hunter I bought. My only complaint is the servos...I wish we had the option to use our own. The wiring and airline plumbing is way better than I have ever done. To me they're worth every penny...I can't even paint this good! I also have their 1/6 F16.

Haven't flown it yet, waiting on JR to get xbus harnesses in. If you had your motor, radio components and uat on hand, this thing could be flight ready in a few hours. No pics yet.

I have been watching this thread From the beginning. I saw the jet at FL and new I had to have one. That gear is just awesome. I must admit that what held me back was that it is a PNP. I am so anal when I build that I am not sure how comfortable I can be with a PNP.

With all that said, I took advantage of BVM'S Cyber Monday Sale and bought one of these babies. Patti was so awesome to deal with. I ordered a Blue Angles version. Patti said she recently delivered one of these and even contacted the customer who was nice enough to share some photos. The jet is externally painted, has all the markings and looks amazing. I was able to order the number of my choice and could even specify the pilots name under the canopy! I bought an Elite Force Aviator..Blue Angel #5 LCD Scott Kartvedt. His name and number are on his flight suit so that is the name I asked the factory to put on the jet.

I am super excited to get this jet and wish you could see how she looks in this scheme. Maybe Chris will post some pictures of his. As far as the PNP, I will give it a good once over and open up and redo the tanks if needed and things like that. I am sure I will do some interior painting and insulating.

Really really really really excited to get this beauty!

Joel I am with you on this. I only use high end Futaba or JR servos. I have not heard anything bad about the PNP servos however. Have there been any issues? Can anyone share their experience with these servos?
Thanks!
