FRCFoamies J20 Scale Score and Fold Twin and Single Prop
Twin prop is available now!!
The past few planes we've done at FRCFoamies have pushed score and fold to the limit with their extremely scale, store bought looks and our latest design is no different. Despite the scale looks, the J20 is a very easy build. Choose the twin prop for crazy maneuverability or tone it down a bit with our rear prop TV vanes like on the F22- up to you. Either way, the J20 takes everything you love about our FRC F22 and our FRC Mig 29 and crams it all together.
The J20 is China's 5th generation fighter which looks like it uses pieces from many different fighter jets: a piece of F22 and Eurofighter, maybe a some Saab Gripen, a dash of F35- lots of stuff going on there. As if they took the best features of each one. You would think a long delta canard plane with twin tails has got to be a great flying plane. You'd be wrong. It's a SPECTACULAR flying plane! The J20 may possibly be the perfect all around parkjet! J20 Testing: Boxermad 84, Fed50H, Newt and F1wanabe
A few weeks ago Jay came to visit me in Pa and we spent the day at the field, along with Fed50h and Newt. We put the J20 prototypes through their paces and here are some testing notes from our testing day at the field:
"The J20 has great pitch stability from its extra length"
"Lifting body fuselage has a ton of lift from such a narrow wingspan"
"Canards give good lift at high angle of attack"
"Twin tails with ventral strakes feel locked in"
"Crazy roll rate!"
"FAST!"Thanks to KK for cutting me a J20 kit and testing the J20, as well as Andy Timmons. Their testing results were invaluable.
