Im really getting a desire to build one of these monsters. I worry about the weight though. I said I wouldnt do another monster size jet after my FB T-33. My question to guys flying this thing How much does it weigh? Empty wt and with fuel. Thanks.

Well I think mike did his bare bones at about 55 wet.

Mine had had more fuel moving pilots l, moving inlets and all kinds of other scale stuff. Mine was about 75lbs wet. It still flew light though.

Keep in mind T-1 is building a F15 C also that should be lighter and much more scale. Hope too see it near the end of this year I would hope.

Wait, T-1 is doing an F-15?? Awesome. I miss my Skymaster 15 but always wanted a bigger one with T-1 style quality and accuracy.

I’m building the 1//7 F-15E from FB now. It’s white gel-coat and A BUNCH of body work. If you don’t like filling and sanding wait for the T-1. I only bought this because it was a smokin deal.

I wish... Its 1/7 scale also like the FB. 1/6 starts getting so expensive and heavy that the factory thinks it will not sell many because of that. Also a 1/6 F15 is very wide. It becomes very hard to transport. We had this same problem when doing the F22. It was so wide at 1/6 scale it would have been extremely hard for most to transport.

I think Gunradd said 55-75lbs depending on how lite you build it.
