Not specifically but just a couple of months ago I stumbled across an ad in an old RCM magazine from the 80's or 90's. Honestly can't remember which decade. Not sure if I still have it lying around either but the company was selling a number of kits of that construction mix and configuration: top-mounted foam wing, square down-spout fuse, trike gear, engine in the nose. The ad featured an F-15 and a similarly twin-tailed Mig. I would guess that was one of theirs.

Thanks for all the replies.

Slamn Sammy,

Was my brothers plane, he said it flew like a dog, but he was using an OS 40 LA, I've changed to a TT Pro .46 which as you know is a lot stronger than an OS LA. I've had some experience with an older Great Planes F-15 that was a complete brick. Take off roll was 3/4 the length of our 600 ft runway, and even then it wallowed into the air. My trick was to keep it low and level until the speed built up and then it would fly great. Landings were VERY hot and you could flare it and use aerobraking just as the real F-15 does. I flew the mess out of that plane while I had it, but it was a one trick poney. Wasn't expecting 3d with it but dives from height to a low level fast pass can get boring after awhile. I'm gonna give this one a try and see what becomes of it as I have less than $20 invested.

I HAVE ON JUST LIKE ITBetter with aprop however



Cobbled together 90 mm fan with 250 Watt Turnigy L2210-1650 Bell Style Motor (250w) seeing if I can get decent efficiency from a small fan turning slower.
On 14.8 Volts its pushing almost 500 Grams, not so bad thrust mapping is as follows.
100 Grams 1.9 A 27.6 Watts
156 Grams 3.0 A 42.9 Watts
197 Grams 3.9 A 55.1 Watts
257 Grams 5.5 A 76.0 Watts
296 Grams 6.7 A 90.9 Watts
340 Grams 7.9 A 105.5 Watts
432 Grams 10.7 A 138.1 Watts
492 Grams 12.5 A 155.7 Watts
The tests were run on two 7.4V 1300mAh Turnigy 20C Lipo's in series, I figure the motor will survive full throttle bursts on 4C and its 10 Amps short of the max, 100 Watts below its spec.
Its surprising as the same motor with a 8 X 6 prop pulled 23.3 Amps on a 3C yielding 520 Grams of thrust at 232.3 Watts.

WORKS BETTER WITH A PROP HOWEVER

23.6 Amps
11020 RPM
880 Grams Thrust !
240 Watts
That's on a 2200mAh 3C and a Turnigy AE-30 ESC

That looks like an old LDM kit. They are long out of production. I seem to recall they had an F-16, F-15 and maybe one other. I wish someone would bring them back. I have the F-15 NIB I'm holding for a rainy day.
