Nearly had one in my collection of toys, but discovered major damage to the model before taking it from the delivery truck. So still interested in this model, especially the new military paint scheme.

I do like that one too, just wish that the yellow will be changed to gray the full wings or maybe something like the f-100 Vietnam era green brown camouflage , this model will look great in all types of military paint jobs.

My new version has two fuel tanks the exact same line the picture, actually I wish they made those from plastic like jet legend jak 130 this thing is actually very fragile and very thin.

Default Maiden and thoughts





22.5kg dry.
6.5L fuel
3.5L smoke
K260
Bluebird H51B x 8 servos

I put 3 flights on this thing. It flies great. Definitely needs a lot of Crow to slow it down with K260. Knife Edges quite well even at low speeds. Low and slow is quite predictable. No bad tendencies detected yet.

must do's:

Get flaps geometry correct for reliable flaps operation.
If you use stock gear with stock Springs then do not modify them.

Nice Jet. Sleek look and the scheme suits it well.

I think the problem with slowing down is that the cg is way too nose heavy, the manufacturers recommendations is 280mm from leading edge but itís actually right in front of the wing tube at 13Ē from the edge, this military one flying good and slow down very well and landing slow with jet central mammoth

This is my with the same paint job, the cg is right in front of the wing tube, only two flights so far, the first with almost manufactured recommended cg and the second flight with 13Ē cg and the third will be with the cg right in front of the wing tube

Curious, how well would a 220 size powerplant fly this model? Planning to sell the airframe, so the 220 will need a new home.

Should be fine for regular sport flying,but most people after some time change it to 250-260 size motor, Iím doing ok with the p-200 even the motor have so problem to not reaching the maximum rpm to 112.000 it only goes to 109.000 and produce only about 205 Newton instead of 230n like the p-200sx should do , one guy flying this model with sw160 and he is doing very well maybe very light build?

I have about 30 or so flights on mine with the K260. A 220 is more than ideal. It is not a very fast airframe - so the extra power is not going to make it go any faster. It draws some of the best line and KE is a breeze. Got some videos from yesterday - will post them shortly.

Where did you order this protective covering from; thanks.

Any link to where you get those from?

Copper strand or steel?
