Default New BVM F-18

Ok. we all know about it. It was seen at Florida Jets and I was wondering if anybody has an idea on what color schemes will be available? When will the plane be available?

Ahhhhhh Good. Just big enough to fly well but not too big for one person to handle. If only someone would convince Yellow to retool the big boy!

A great year ahead for all.

I just assumed everybody new about it. I thought it was the poorest kept secret out there! People mentioned it in the same breath as the L-39 and since it was announced this week, I thought maybe the F-18 was right around the corner. I'll try to post a pic later when I get home. Oh well, at least post what you do know...

The irony when I was chewed on this forum by a BVM Rep for stating that JL Airframes were BVM quality!!

Laugh now bee-itch!!. Suck on the chinese popsicle.

I think this is the one I saw Dustin fly a while back at Greg's. Looked to fly well. My guess is they are making them change a few things before selling them.

Well if true makes sense. The days of buying $8000 box of parts are over. China has made cheaper built and painted planes and we love them, I remember years ago talking to BVM about ready to fly jets as the future and they laughed. Everything progresses and this is the next generation of planes. Welcome to Plug and Play. I myself love it and by the planes that are showing up at the events so do others.

We will continue to love the scratch builders but they will be one in a million in the future. Unfortunately they are a dying bread
