Thanks

we we could sell it now but wonít until itís tested. After FLjets I should have a good idea on how it does. Itís been great while building. For instance I was shooting clear coat tonight and needed to put the gear down to set the plane on it so I could shoot the top after doing the belly.

All i I had to do was run the magnet close to turn on receiver then air pump turned on automatically so I could get the gear down with out opening a single panel. Was nice!

Have been slow on the updates but have been cranking on the F22. Itís all done now accept the markings and flat clear along with CG and ground testing. Got one week until FL jets. Hope to maiden this weekend or Next Monday.

Tonight i I got the gloss clear on it. Will let it harden up then start installing markings tomorrow. All markings are from Tailormadedecals! And look great. Will do flat clear and weathering aftermarkings.

Kris
Looks Great. I am looking forward to seeing you and the F-22 in person at FJ.
I really wish my RC jet stuff was down here from Ohio. Going to be a hard thing to be a spectator there watching everyone else fly.

Finally got her out for taxi testing. First time ive herd a K260 in a Bi pipe... man does she sound nasty!

Tom itís about 55 dry.
just remember though I have lots of extra crap. Like an air pump with a battery moving pilot with moving arms and head. Moving missiles and so on. Plus all the filler to fix the panel lines. Still a few pounds lighter then my FB F15 was though and I flew that one with a K 210.

Hoping to to have a weather break Monday for a maiden. Hopefully I can skip work.

Short video. More to come! Without a doubt my favorite aircraft I have ever flown!! The camera guy Steve missed the thrust vectoring loops. Sure more video will come a FLjets!

Fabulous job! The only thing that could make it better is if it were a Bonehead! 95FS Tyndall AFB Fl. (My old sqn) The Boneheads were deactivated after the hurricane wiped out Tyndall but hope they will come back when Tyndall gets the F35.
