Crawled all over it amigo! Worth the wait. I can't wait til they finish testing it and add it to the PNP line of big jets. Simply awesome.

Matt, I got a good look at it this weekend but only took a couple, of gerneral overall pix. Engine is centered in the hatch area. The substantial fuel tanks are forward of the Y shaped intake, allowing a comfortable 7+ minute routine with a K310.
Rob and Greg said they would ask for fuel tank quantity later.

Its in the LTMA-1 class and they told me the estimated weight but I can't remember the quoted number. I was running on min sleep from the commute there followed by cigars and scotch with an old buddy the night before. Worth every minute watching it fly in addition to catching up with BV for a lil bit.

A great project. Give Rob Lynch a call at BVM, I think he has nearly 60 flights on it.

I seem to recall Rob mention they will be attending BITW so hopefully they will add it to the list of planes in the spacious trailer.

I have been flying the PNP F-18F for a few months now and it is a blast! Will put a full review up soon when some of the video is out. I totally recommend this machine.
