          • Got my maiden done today. Wow what a great flying bird. Honesty my first maiden where I did not need one click of trim. I flew of the dirt road next to our grass field I still don't have the confidence to fly it off grass. Our grass is thick. I did taxi it in the grass and that nose wheel disappears in the grass. Anyone doing a bigger front wheel mod?

            • I flew this awesome jet six more times today. I moved my 4000 mAh Admiral 60C a quarter inch aft of the forward foam stop and it's flying even better. I reduced the aileron throws to 60 percent of low rate settings and it rolls about 360 degrees per second now. Takeoff distance with flaps up is about 85 feet and landing distance with full flaps is about 100 ft. Performance penalty with missiles is negligible. These jets just keep getting better. Great job Motion and Freewing!

              • Look Ma, no wires ! Okay, I know it's not scale. Pure Blasphemy ! But I'll have a little better visual . Wireless, rechargeable LED Nav . 3 modes: Strobe, fast blinking and slow blinking I mounted the wing lights under the wing so from the top view you can't see them. https://youtu.be/uXBAFJ9Tt_k

                  • Hey Tony,

                    Paul Wood flies his A4 almost as good as you ! With a little practice he may catch up. Notice the Bon Homme Richard Livery ? https://youtu.be/OCjZcoNY9AU

                    Bravo Zulu,

                    • Trust me, I'm trying to fly more like him.
                      Maybe he practices his routine flying the A-4 on a Real Flight Sim as well!

                      • The 6-year old girl in the photo reminds me of my grand daughter, Milah who is six as well. She loves my planes and goes to the field with me when possible. Kids love planes and I agree that we should share when presented the opportunity. Bless you for taking the time with her.

                        • My A4 is back in the box while I decide how I want to do her. I like the looks of John Mcains VA-46 A4E, with the stars and bars on the nose.

                            So, pull it back out of the box and do it Boots. If you like the looks of it then go for it. There are so many schemes to choose from that if you have made it this far, I think you have decided.

                                      • Yeah it wasn't too awful bad. But it messed up the fuselage nose gear mount area and a main gear. Just basically slammed into the runway on final due to my pulling power while fighting the wind. Bad move.
                                        Anyway, I have an ARF+ that will be flying soon. Still got other birds to fly and today looks like a good day to do just that.

                                          Now had you just waited to fly with us on October 7th at the Warbirds over Grapevine event, you could of at least taken home a prize:





                                          Just kidding. I hate when this happens and it happens to all of us. Been there , done that, got the tee-shirt. Glad you got right back up on the horse. Great positive attitude !
