Default T-1 f15

I keep hearing about a future T-1 F-15. When? How big? power requirements? I want an Eagle but the choices are few. Avonds no longer producing kits and it is small, Small SM, small JL and the upcoming BVM is family model....YGBSM! Who wants a family model Eagle? FB is big and I really dont want another 2 man jet.

Dont quote me on it but I know T1 is doing an F-15 but it maybe on the larger side.

The T-one F15 will be the same size as FB jets. It will be about 110 inches long. We are working on it coming with moving inlets stock like I had on my old FB F15. Also it will have many other scale details done right and have working landing gear..... Those of us that dealt with the FB F15 always had issues with the gear unless you retrofitted it with new non rotating gear. The aircraft will also be allot lighter. Should be very similar in size to the T1 F22. Will do both strike eagle and C model. I think they are trying to make the conformal fuel tanks option also for those that want C models with the tanks on the fuselage. I saw pics of what they want to do on the exhaust nozzles and its pretty good looking.

All the cad work is completed I saw the pics but T-one has a few other planes up first. One we hope to debut at FLjets in a few months Pretty sure every one knows what that is now . Next I believe will be the F35 and a large cougar. After that F15.... So its a little ways down the road.

An F35 will be a big hit as it is the fighter of the future. Please tell me it will be a 160ish size jet that doesnt require a crane to move it around. If it is a manageable size sign me up!

Please donít just make only giant jets like Skymaster, just a good variety of different sizes to suit different customers

They do but they havenít designed a new one for about 6+ years and I asked Anton if they plan to bring any new small or mid size jets and they said no only big jets. Which is a shame cause I like their models but canít see myself buying one again cause theyíre too big and impractical for me personally

Iím really surprised Anton has not come out with a 1/7 F-15 yet. It seems like their is a lot of demand for an F15 of this size range but not much selection.
I would love one of this size range but I am not willing to battle the short comings of the FB kit.

What are the problems with the FB F15C. It has different gear than the F15E. I have heard anything else.

The FB F15 C model is a pretty good plane. If going single just factor in needing a new pipe. The pipe that comes with the plane does not line up with the exhaust nozzles.

According to their site they have the C and E in the same 1:7 size, and a smaller D.
