Hang tight, Matthew, we're working on transferring forum now and then we'll see what we can do with the pre v5 plans after that!

Can this use the same motor and prop as the F-18 V3?

Yep good plans but on the MK1 plans a lot of front structure can be done away with like RCPOWERS F117 model
Saves Heaps of weight
And turn the battery sideways plans are very nose heavy (too much so)
Found the battery sideways makes it a lot less twitchy in the pitch and roll
Buried this thing in the ground 3 inches
Battery exited the front etc
Rebuilt nose carbon tube on each side
Runs a A2212 2700
Still a bit fast for me to be fair but a way cool plane1531908143758-442648762.jpg

Anyone else got the feeling that that thing ain't gonna fly HALF as well as the RCP version? I mean, I've only flown the F-18 until now but that only proved what the whole bunch of test flight videos suggested, which is that the RCP models are just plain PERFECTION!

It finally flew!! after a 40 mph ish crash I pulled the nose back into proper direction and added expo( No expo was the problem) It flew. Having no rudders make it harder to turn properly but worked well and I was very happy with it.
