Hello jamessymons,
I agree with BarracudaHockey. This jet was at Georgia Jet Super Jet South 2021. It is cool and appears to fly well.

Cheers!

Probably a nice jet and I’m sure folks will have a great time with them. Especially if they fly as well as the traditional Boomers. However, for my tastes at least, there’s a wart on the nose of this girl…

Alan Cardash had this weird idea in his head that tip tanks should be backwards. Folks suggested that they were backwards, but he wouldn’t listen and just got pissy about it. Seems like that slip has carried over to post-Cardash designs, huh? Hopefully others won’t be bothered by it and and it will sell like hotcakes, but my own OCD just makes me cringe at those tips.

I watched an unboxing video of it. It appears to come with wing tips too. So, I would not put the tip tanks on. They are fake anyways, whats the point?
I think the fuselage design is interesting.

Without a doubt, itís a good looking airplane overall. If the tips are optional then thatís the best of both worlds.
