    • I decided to try the external tanks from my FW Mig-21 on the F4 to help with orientation and it really helped! They are not a direct fit but the magnets line up quite well and feel pretty secure. I did quite a few WOT passes with hard pull-ups so I'm pretty sure they are solid enough. Plus, if one does come off the excess drag on the other side shouldn't be anywhere near as bad as the stock tanks as these are about 1/2 the diameter and much more streamlined.

      We had the Sheriffs office at the field as well and they were more than happy to clock some of our planes! They clocked a straight and level pass at 111mph and my on-board GPS logged a 118mph max. That was with 2 RC Jetwerx 60C 5300's. It's much faster than it appears! I guess that comes with size cause I can see and feel my BAE Hawk 70mm when it's 100+ but the Phantom just looks slower than it's actually going IMO. Still a blast though! The pic is small but it's all that I have at the moment that shows the tanks.

          • Hard to digest the looks of the F-4 with the Mig tanks. Kind of looks like a beautiful full figured woman with shoes that are way to small. Been flying mine with the tanks that come with kit and I think it flys better with them on.Today flew six flights all with the tanks on. From now on I will mostly fly it with the tanks. It looks like a A*# Kicker with them on.

                      We're making some decisions in the background and I'll post an update within the next day or two. Stay close.

                        It is turning out great Jason. Going to be one awesome Phantom. I am considering getting a second one and doing an 'E' model.
