They should do new and different planes like Mirage, Rafale’s, Tornado and even some more Russian planes. There’s lots of migs and sukhoi’s that haven’t been done or even a F22. Rather than giant versions of planes that have already been made hundreds of times (F16/F14 etc)

I agree. Please Do some different models that haven’t been done before and different sizes because not many people can transport or store such huge planes

I put F16’s first which there are hundreds of but you decided to leave that out. My point was not to just keep making bigger versions of the same planes all the time. They already have a F14, A10 and avanti and they now want to make bigger versions. They’ve just done a F16 F18 and F4 large version which they already have done before. Would be nice to see something new. That was my point... calm down

Something new like a Mig 17 or Mig 19 would be good.

Word is there is a Mig 17 coming out by someone else. But I was disappointed to hear it will be a "Big Boy".
I'm leaning toward smaller airframes these days and by smaller I mean under eight feet.

I like the looks and size of the larger jets. My pocket book, transport, and storage keeps me limited to around the 8 foot size as well. They still have a nice presence in the sky and look good on the ground as well.

OK, so here's a (potential) issue with this big F-14 - can you get it into the air at a weight (wet) of 100 lbs or less?

The evidence right now for the FEJ 1/6 F-14 is that you can not might not make that weight restriction...

People are flying the 1/6 FEJ F-14? not in this country yet, as far as I know. I know of only one that has made it to the US and it has not flown yet.

As far as weighing them, some jet events are starting to do that - or at least make the scales available and offer assistance to pilots that want to get their aircraft certified.

Remember, model aircraft over 55 lbs MUST be certified under the AMA's Large Model Aircraft (LMA and LTMA) program. It is ultimately the PILOT's responsibility to get their aircraft certified. To not do so for an aircraft over 55 lbs is a violation of Federal Law 14 CFR Part 101, which states (in part)

(c) The aircraft is limited to not more than 55 pounds unless otherwise certified through a design, construction, inspection, flight test, and operational safety program administered by a community-based organization;

At this time, the ONLY community-based certification program that meets this requirement is the AMA LMA, LTMA certification process. Not complying with this puts you, as the owner/pilot, and more than likely the CD of an event, in a very precarious legal and liability position if something happens.

The process to comply is easy enough that NOT complying is foolish, IMO.

One must keep in mind though that the AMA LTMA program limits jet models to 100 lbs maximum takeoff weight (wet). I know that some of the really big jet models are pushing this limit, but I personally wouldn't be one of them that is - the risks are too high.

How about an F-8E Crusader, the last of the "Gunfighters" complete with a working wing?

https://www.ultimate-jets.net/collec...ader-1-7-scale

I know Anton has put out some great models and I have an F-14, but this stuff Oli is putting cannot be compared to anything else available. There is a thread on the model here on RCU.

The new Skymaster su35 weighs 30-35kgs dry! I would imagine F14 would be heavier

Absolutely, the 8 feet or 2.5 meter size is plenty big enough.
