That is truly awesome, so glad you followed the new rule.


Now hang it on the wall.


I think that’s probably sage advice Jeff. Although I can’t justify all the build materials that it’s holding hostage. Wall for now, then to work out it’s fate at a later date.

Btw, the removable wingtip rails paid for themselves - I knocked them off 4 times between leaving the house and getting it home. Might stick with this method, although the additional tip weight may have contributed to the roll responsiveness.

Unscathed. By some miracle...

2 packs through The Nemesis on the weekend, and somehow survived. This plane scares the absolute crap out of me, especially on 4S. It is STUPID quick! And sooo friggin’ responsive that it’s flat-out dangerous.

The kids took some video - if I can edit out a decent 3 seconds or so, I’ll post it.

The only plane I’m scared to take for a spin...

Paint?!?! No chance! This thing already weighs 700gm on a 75cm-ish wingspan! Every time it survives a launch is a bonus. Paint would just be a waste of paint

So this is kind of annoying...

I had put this plane away. I restored it after the last time I destroyed its front half, never to fly it again but with the intention of hanging it for posterity because the shape is absolutely outstanding.

But no, Scott has to go and revive the thread. And now I've had to go and revive my PI F18 G1R, and get started on a few mods that weren't required for wall hanging but will be required if i manage to get it out in Spring:


    • I've corrected the droopy right elevon issue (not sure if it's an issue, but it could be so I've fixed it). Don't ask me how I fixed it; the die-hards will have a fit. Let's just hope it doesn't decide to spring back on me while it's airborne...

    #warpedairframe

    • After snapping off the wingtip rails at least 374 times each (maybe slightly more on the left), I've made the front half of them removable. I've used strong magnets so they stay on in flight, which leaves me wondering which part will snap-off next time i knock one...


    • My top hatch is gone. It's been replaced with the fan-favourite bottom hatch.


    • There's a lot of filler on this edition - it was supposed to look nice on the wall. Hopefully it's not too heavy to drag its sorry backside off the lawn.



Hoping to get a remaiden in before Xmas. Wish me luck...

I used BIG magnets Andy, as this thing pulls some serious G. Think they're 8mm x 2mm or thereabouts. I got my finger caught in them once and won't be doing it again.

Maybe you could get away with something smaller/lighter on a more friendly mode of transport.

On the earlier F-16 G1 and Typhoon, I placed the magnets on the wing tips, so the the whole boom(s) will immediately be detached if got stuck with something or grass.

Anyway, awesome improvements, SB! I love knowing that you flew that beauty again

You never know those big heavy magnets may have rid you of the twitchiness .

I used magnets out of a dead motor, fairly light and thin. I think it was the F-15, I don't know anymore what I have built.
