      Nice flight, cool high alpha and great landing! Holy Cow, flying through those wind turbines must get exciting, and some of us complain about a few stationary trees, light poles or basketball hoops!

        I got the chance to show my new 70mm F-16 fuselage some love:
        -a touch of new decals, mixed with
        -hand-painting (paint pens)
        -3-D printed rails.

        I know this is not the newest thing out but she's one of my newest and I am absolutely LOVING how she flies. Thank you for this bird!

                • Hey James, Thank you for the kind words and acknowledgments with regard to my modified Spitfire. I built it from August-December 2018. It is meant to replicate a Seafire F.45 variant which is basically a 'navalized Mk.21 Spitfire'. I did not modify the fuselage nose profile to match the Griffon engine, though I did mod the wing tips to match the updated profile adopted for the Mk XV wing plan and added a couple degrees of washout. I 'pointed up' the rudder and added 3/4" to the aft portion to increase the overall area and sanded in the stressed skin look. I added 3D 'signal lights' similar to Mustangs and Corsairs, which were typical for the variant. I also designed and 3D printed the longer spinner, cable guard for the tail wheel, a pitot tube, strut/rudder tie downs, and additional cockpit details, etc. I used the Flightline cockpit resin printed 3D parts as my inspiration to continue with a few more parts. It flies incredibly well, but a bit rudder sensitive, go figure. So there you have it, another modded Flightline Spitfire, a great MotionRC model of the most beautiful silhouette in aviation. Best as always, LB

                  • Hi James & the MRC team,

                    2 weeks ago my good friend Frank from Germany and myself visited pilot Robert on his home field in Germany. The day after, Frank and I attended a closeby EDF meeting in Belgium. Here's a vid showing one of his Avanti flights. His jet is blazingly fast because of the 8S upgrade. Enjoy the vid!

                                • Well look what arrived at my door this evening!

                                  Took about, oh.. maybe 3 minutes to unbox and fill. Unboxing video to follow soon.
                                  Fit and finish is absolutely amazing! The livery is second to none.. stunning colors.
                                  CG is spot on at about 7/8ths full. Any more and it becomes tail heavy. Otherwise...

                                  ... I freaking love it!

                                          I've always loved the repaint you did on the Avanti since you first showed it off, outstanding. But until now (not sure how I missed it earlier ), I didn't realize you had added a thrust vectoring unit on it, it must fly incredibly well. What did you use for the TV unit and do you have any "installation" photos of it?
