sorry guys my video isnt working so ill work on getting it on here this weekend but here are some pic.. now i had the v2 and must say the new v3 is a BIG leap...in the wings there is carbon fiber EVERYWHERE, its in the wheel wells, along the the whole strech of the wing. in the nose there is now carbon fiber as well.but the biggest improvement was the two booms. they must weight 2 or even 3 time more than the older version, and it is beefed up!!!!!! the elevator is the same... so all the servos are internal which i like.

Thought they might have improved the elevator setup by putting the elevator servo in the tailplane which is much better than the two servos.

Not if you want to strip the model down easily for transport it isn't

The V3 looks very nice, I have a V1, but I reinforced all the plane, glassed with fiber and painted.

Would'nt agree Tim as you have to disconnect two pushrods, which then are lying loose on the servo arm, where as with one servo in the tailplane you just have one servo lead to unplug, also with two elevator servos you have one extra connection to make at the boom to wing join and the wing to fuse join

Anyway I thought it was recommended by MBUSA to glue the tailplane into the booms

Sorry guys for the delay on info I was in South America at a Jet Show. All the US and Canada Customers will be getting there airplanes shipped by the middle to end of next week. We are currently finishing up the airplanes and waiting for some motor mounts and gear struts wheels and brakes. I know there has been a delay but please be patient we have been extremely busy an also trying to get the bet product possible for our customers. Thank you very much or your patience.

Also I sorry to say but we are completely sold of Tornado V3. We have a wait list starting for anybody wanting one. All the people that have contacted be wanting airplanes have been placed on the wait list. I have brought in a 40 ft container for the US and Canada and have the other 40 ft container for South America and Europe. I hopefully expect to have some extra airplanes after the next container arrives at the end of may to beginning of June.

ok guys my v3 is almost done, if all goes well ill post video of the finish product thur night and try to have her in the air this weekend. v3 is much easier to assemble than v2. maybe because ive built one before, who knows, but i will say this. if your getting the yellow version you will love the paint scheme.

nice! thanks for the video.
I think you got the control horns wrong, when i built the Version 1 the horn on the flaps was actually the one to be angled backwards, permitting you to get the right amount of trow on the flap. you might get the trow with it like that but I'm pretty sure by the time you get the 3" of down flap recommended the horn is going to be close if not touching the bottom part of the wing.

Frank I hope to get them out to you by the end of this week. We are still working on models and have not received our shipment fo motor mounts so that has us held up a little. Please Iask to help us out this is the biggest order of airplanes that we have recieved. We are going to ship out 400+ airplanes in the next 2 months and we are busy at work to get them to you in the best quality condotion. Not sure if everybody knows bu thwen they get to my facility here in South Florida the kits still need to be worked on and made ready so they arrive to you like Justins kit. I appreciate all your patience and you guys will love the new plane.

Also FYI we just got the new F16 in this morning. I not going to open the box just yet becuase we are a litttle busy with the Tornado's but Iwill show you guys ASAP
