Damn I sooooo need another one of these, do you think carf would paint the canopy without the black outline? Not a fan of that but I really think the Rebel Pro is the sexiest sport jet made so far.
Nice work on the inside paint!

I totally agree. I loved the way mine looked and flew.

if thatís the way you want it I think there is no problem, you just have to ask for that to your rep when placing the order

Sick motivation. Do you have a weight? Swiwin announced that the 220 should be doing in the next couple weeks do that's my motivation! I'm going to get my building area all cleaned up from my last build over my work week. And next week I have 6 days off and plan to get a whole lot done on the Pro...

Joe, I loved watching you do those low flybys at JOK back in the day. I love my Rebel Hot.

Me neither, anymore, but nobody has finished out a CARF pro and posted weights. The speckle finish and stuff is nice but I'm a pilot, first n foremost, so not sure I'm going to do as nice a job as you.
I would really appreciate all the gain settings on the AS3000 if you have it, as this might be the first jet I own to have a gyro.

Weight was 17kg, itís not mine, I fly on a different brand.....I know absolutely nothing about the spektrum gyro except itís easy to hook-up......

The paint doesnít add much...itís mainly One light coat of grey primer and very very light coat coat of stone.....the stone doesnít cover anything...itís like sprinkle...

And we are not pilots like you obviously LOL.....right....your funny.

I think you took that wrong. What I meant is I'm in this hobby more for the flying aspect of it than the building part these days. I used to spend a lot of time making stuff nice but I've lost patience for it.
If I lived in Canada and if I had the extra money I'd have you finish this jet!
I'm hoping to be a kilo or so lighter than that, as I'm still on the fence about smoke, and I will be using lighter batteries.

Well I love flying, I used to build strictly because I had too.....then come the ARFĎs....but as I get older and now retired I find I like assembling/building as much as flying and since I live in a 4 seasons country....was planning a few months in Florida next winter, but now I think I will build a few more jets instead...

I did put LOL in the text LOL.....😬

Thanks, I just love the way these Rebels fly. Even the smaller versions look like they fly awesome. Looking into trying to pick up my Rebel Pro back up from the guy that bought it from me. Maybe I will be back at it again.
