I took mine out after about 3 year hiatus and it felt like an old glove. Missed flying her and will be bringing her back out some more soon.

Got a case of Phantom Phever. This is the new Top RC kit that will go feet wet in the next few weeks. It's a hair larger than the SM. Hope to have it by mid Oct for my winter project.

I still need to get an F-4 one of these days... And I keep putting it off. :-[
Buck's flew great, after being hidden for 2 years...

That is a good looking airplane. I was tempted to pre-order one, but decided to let it mature a bit.

Well I'm going to be the Beta tester....talk to me Goose. Top Rc has a descent record of good flying jets. That's what I'm counting on.

"You love a lot of things if you live around them, but there isnít any woman, and there isnít any horse, nor any before nor any after, that is as lovely as a great airplane, and men who love them are faithful to them even though they leave them for others. A man has only one virginity to lose in fighters, and if it is a lovely plane he loses it to, there his heart will ever be."

ó Ernest Hemingway August 1944

Something about a Phantom. I can tell you the Skymaster is a great flying jet, and probably a little more robust. Good luck! 😎
