Default Xtreme ARF F100D video


Nice, new video of the F-100D, I was wondering if more of these are flying than is shown by so few older videos.

Ok he still flies his. He has this same scheme as in the video I posted. Maybe I’ll have to talk with him about his experience with the model.
I’m surprised there are are so few videos of this huge F-100D. I’m just poking around looking for more info and video....

Hi Chris, Roberto has a nice one that he wants to sell since we can't fly at Whidbey any more. I think it has about 10-15 flights on it.

Hi Swiss Jet, what is your set up? Turbine? Stab servos and CG?
Do you have any notes on the plane and how it handles?
Thanks for replying about your model.

Hi Chris
Servos Hitec; 7990 for stab and the rest with 7954! Powerbox SRS (Gyro: not really needed) and Futaba RX. Turbine P-200, P-180 to 220 is more then sufficient! CG exactly to manual notes
with all the ordinance! Great appearance easy to fly, heavy bird ( 25kg) but very stable with the flaps and slats. For frequent flyer, do recommend to use concrete runway, undercarriage not as rigid and stable for grass!

Thanks for the info!
Do you have any more videos to share?
If the model is a little lighter, no ordinance, do you think it can handle grass runway operation?
We have a runway that’s 800x100 feet and it’s well maintained, pretty smooth. The guys can fly smaller models from this runway.

Hi
More Videos are on YouTube, specially from Lewis! Grass ops is surely possible with less weight! Just check regularly the undercarriage, wheel-shafts as they are rather "weak".

Is this video of the new lighter version? I had this plane in the T-bird scheme & was really impressed with it, but sold it because I felt I'd never get to it. It's absolutely beautiful, but for some reason in videos, it never seems to be 100% on step (if that makes sense). It always looks like it'll be going twice as fast on the next lap, but then never seems to quite gets there. I'd still buy it again, but I wonder why?��

Interesting observation, yes sometimes it looks "slow" but has presence and stability. Could be just its size and how it looks on camera.

I don't think it's the size. If you compare it to some of the Airworld Hun videos out there, they are the same size, but the AW looks like a bullet. I think this should be capable of similar speeds, but perhaps the ducting or airfoils are different.. IDK, but curious
