    Did you not retract the gear?
    Why?

    Anton,

    Doesn't it make sense, that if you're going to post videos of aircraft in development, for marketing reasons, that SkyMaster make an investment in a higher quality video camera?! I am very interested in this model, but the quality of the video is very disappointing.

    Congrats on the successful flight!

    Me as well.
    How about less 80mph 2 minute flights and more 200mph 8 minute flights with rolls and loops?
    the video quality and test flying style is tiresome.

    Agreed. Please also test this aircraft with a 200 class turbine, as that is most likely what the majority of these jets will be powered with in the field. I'd like to know that the structure can handle the stress of a more powerful turbine than the 170.

    RE: Skymaster ARF Plus 1:5 scale F-104G

    Anton,

    How much throttle we're you using during that flight? The ground handling is certainly better now, but it is still sitting too low at the front. Is it possible to get the nose a bit higher?

    Could you please post some photo's showing all the hatches you have on the jet - it will be good to know how much working space and also installation space there is.

    Thanks for sharing your developments with us, it certainly is a lot more than most other manufacturers will do.

    Cheers,

    Jan
    It is always pilot error.

    RE: Skymaster ARF Plus 1:5 scale F-104G

    Hi, all

    Thank you for your suggested,

    That poor weather conditions and air pollution seriously I almost lost the F-104, because i can not see it in the sky well, some time i want to guess aircraft posture, Fly less than 200 meters is almost unknown aircraft position even the camera could not capture it,

    Flying through the air when I had used the 2/3 to 3/4 thrust,

    I will be flying again after the F-104 painted, this time only test the slat for take off and landing,

    Best regards

    yes, we put the too much air in the hydrupic main Oleo legs , the Main Oleolegs little hard and nose oleo leg little soft , i will suggest to Likai about the nose weight and dry weight for adjust the air inside,

    i will post some pictures here, Thank you,

    I suspect what happened in Florida was a gyro going haywire.

    Anton,

    Very nice. But don't you think that you will loose some cooling around the jet pipe with the exhaust setup. Can't see that too well, please take a photo from the back to show us how you are mounting the exhaust nozzle. It will also be good to see th nose section closer.

    Regards,

    we made the super scale detail for the inner of nozzle. and before paint job, i already test flight this F-104 , no problem for the cooling air,, this will make more scale nozzle for F-104,

    I think the black is more accurate. Someone scrubbed that one clean and the flash tends to brighten and wash out colors.

    Is there a removable nose cone on the F-104?
    I think I can see on the video.
