Oh I Agree. I have an F-35 and they fly great when tamed.

I can assure you there are new models coming, the 16s and 18s have been fantastic sellers and customers have asked for different sizes to suit their needs.

I understand they are good sellers and itís good that your doing different sizes for people instead of only doing the giant jets. Glad to hear youíre bringing out new models... please keep us update. Itís good to have a bvm rep on rcu to communicate about new development and current models!

While you are inquiring about the F22 can you find out if there will be any effort made into the creation of pylons or ordnance for the 1/5 scale Hornet. Thx

There is no plan at this time for an ordnance package for the big Hornet.

You could always order a Skymaster ordnance pack and install them on the Hornet, I've seen a few guys do this with the big PNP F-16.

The F-22 will come back as a PNP model, the factory has no release date at this time.

Thatís awesome, its a good size too. Hopefully they beef up the landing gear a bit. I emailed the a while ago and asked about the 1/8th F15 and alpha jet and they should be PNP too! Some great models in the future

Gear mounts or the gear itself?

We have asked the factory to add carbon fiber to the gear mounts and clamp areas, this was done on my 1.4 scale Yak 130 that was delivered in June.

I meant mounts but it was a old kit I had so Iím sure like with your yak they would do carbon and update it all. I think maybe just make the gear and wheels a bit bigger aswell. The wheels on the old one look a bit too small a spoil the look a bit

I ordered a Blue Angel F9F-8 at Best in the West. I'll be picking it up at BVM when I head down there before Florida Jets in March. Timing is perfect since I'm headed back out to the sandbox for 4 months..

The shop has been busy catching up on Bandit Evo and Ultra Bandit Evo PNP orders after BITW, There are two new airframes currently being flight tested and hopefully will debut at Florida Jets in March. I'll see what I can share with you.
