Default Global Jet Club F-15C

Received it today. One of the first in the US. Avonds/Yellowish size. Overall impressions very good. Nice filets, paint 9+, everything fit nicely right out of the box. Plan on a Cheeta 160SE for push.

Seems like a interesting model. How is the construction and the scale details? I would be interested in seeing more pics when you get a chance.
Thanks,
Tone

I currently have mine all apart for inspection. It is a very well done ARF/PNP. Lots of CF in the right places, very nice glue joints with good filets, real 9 ply aircraft plywood formers. It has a neat thumb screw battery tray. Pipe is very well made. Surface detail is good. Paint is excellent. It has a nice cockpit.

Well, it's slowly coming back together. Replumbed fuel tanks and installed in series. Actually found a 3rd tank when I got it apart. It has 2 saddles 1.75L ea and a main .75L for 4.25 total which will give 8+ minutes with a Cheeta 160SE. Replaced the OEM UAT with a BVM UAT (I've never had a problem with them). Adjusted 2 of the 3 gear doors before smoking the JP controller. GJC is sending me a AS68 and. DS3 controllers for the gear/doors which will be easier to adjust. (Not the 1st JP controller I've smoked). I need to get some 90 Festos for the ECU before I can complete the motor/fuel system. I'm trying the AR SF16 for the first time. Found it easy to set up with my initial plinking. With gear, doors, brakes, and lights which none have switches I decided to try the AR Q Switch to operate everything. Using my Jeti remote switch I can now power everything on/off (including Rx/gyro) with my transmitter.

Wife and I headed out to Corvettes at Carlisle this week for some more fiberglass relaxing. Hope to have it ready to maiden early Sept.

How long did it take for the order? How much shipping from China?
Thanks!

Ordered in early March. Received early Aug. Don't remember shipping break down. Talk to Global Jet Club they can update current shipping costs.
