Default Bvm f-15

I just saw the PnP BVM F-15 on their site but there is little information about it. Has anyone seen it? How scale is the gear and doors? It looks like a B model.....

TIA

Yep, it's a station wagon. No single seat option. I ordered mine in the first batch and was told 5 months. That was early March when the factory went back to work from Covid 19. Hopefully they will start deliveries in August.

Definitely seems to be the case for all their PNP models now. But you're right, they do fly good.

It’s based on the Jetlegend F15 and that had really nice landing gear... not sure how scale the doors are but I imagine they would look fine. With a nice cockpit and paint job and rivets and panel line details I think it looks good. And I’ve heard from a lot of people they are really good flying F15’s

Also it’s a 160 size so it’s not too big or too small and it looks like it comes apart easy for transport.

Good luck getting one. I finally cancelled my order after 9 months.

Look up RC Chaser's videos from FJ on YouTube, they had the BVM F-15 flight in one of them.
