What does that mean? Since when has Jon not given his honest opinion of a kit?

Pretty sure sarcasm was intended but poorly conveyed.

The Skymaster SU is longer but this thing is certainly got more fuse width and wingspan. The XXL F14 fly's lighter than SU with a better wing loading. Simple build overall compared to the SU imho. Fun build. Hopefully we can get a few to fly together soon.

Yea the SU is large but width and general size on this thing does make the SU look small.
The Sheer size of this aircraft is bonkers! been a couple weeks now since the unboxing and it still makes me laugh when I go in the shop and see this thing.

Fantastic flight. Once in delta config, I noticed that the wing sweep is not locked in, but varies slightly during turns? Is that a right? Or does it look like that in the video? If it's a variable sweep, how is it happening in this airplane? What device is making it happen?

WHAT AN AIRPLANE....!!!

It's locked it - just optical illusion I suppose...The sweep angle can be changed - I like it either fully out of fully in. Stock actuator that came with the kit.

I see that you are also a Saraf - you should come to my property and hang out some day - SARAF FARMS RC https://www.saraffarmsrc.com

Thanks for the info and invite Chetan. Appreciate it. Which city is your property located at?

Perhaps the next time you visit India, you could also come and fly at my property in Nagpur. Have had an RC runway since 2007. And even we call it Saraf Farms. . Check out a few pics.

Great to connect up

Anurag

Thanks for the invite. I might take you up on that soon. You have a great facility!

My property is in Good Hope GA USA - about 45 east of downtown Atlanta. It became operational earlier this year.

Sent you a PM.

Chetan
