Dblex! Congrades on your decision! I found the Blue Angels' scheme to always be a show stopper at any field. Good luck with the jet!

Thanks Dan, Now I just need to start ordering servos,switches, ect.

I think I will be replacing the stock air lines for sure...anyone know how much to order? Length and how many?

Now its a decision of when to start getting things since the jet wont be here until December or January. I guess I could hold out for Black Friday sales and take advantage then.....

Searching for a pilot and all I can find are these 1/6th 12" tall BA Pilots. Some say they fit fine on F-18C Model.....??!!??

Not sure on the airlines, I just buy a bunch! Love the different color ones from BVM, but you can find them else where, like Altcare or DreamWorks. 3mm are the best with 3mm Festos. As long as your are in the hobby, stock in the cabinet is always good for the next jet. I am sure you know to safety wire all T fitting and to the actuators too? I use 2S Lipo with Sahara regulators and Wolverine Dual switches. I use this set up on ALL of my jets and 40% CARF planes. Never had a failure. I do keep a battery logbook of mah charged into the batteries verses mah used per flights. I have prevented battery failures this way, or have found Deans connections failures from my soldering techniques.
Did you look at the flight suit on the link that I provided above? Then, buy a 10" pilot from this guy........maybe? I would sell you my pilot, but the next scale jet I want is an F-4, and may need him again.

The pilot dimensions that I provided for my pilot barely fit in the cockpit and actually dented the top of the clear canopy part. I wouldn't use a 12 inch pilot, due to needing to cut his feet and maybe sanding his ass down some to fit. I don't remember where I bought my cockpit. Maybe Global Jet Club?
Another suggestion, is that I didn't like the fuel tank that came with kit. I ordered a custom made tank from Jet tech tanks. It didn't survive the destruction of the jet.

sold it and went to the BVM F9F Cougar Red Point Mogu scheme. My eyes just seem to be getting worse. Went conservative.

I have the Freewing foamy in this scheme and plan to do my BVM 1/5th the same. Super Bee on top and invasion stripes on the bottom of the main wings.
