This is my winter project.  C-ARF New Rooky.
This plane is well over 200mph and should land just as well as the Tornados do. A real grass friendly machine.
Should be a fun build and fun to fly.

KingTech K-140F Kero Start turbine engine is going to push the plane around.  The plane should come in around 20lb and this turbine put out around 30lb of thrust. So theres no lack of power Cheesy

Thanks for the kind words guys. Smiley
No I don't have everything yet. Still waiting on the retracts, which should be here any day. Also need servos and some
little things. The plane requires 11 servo Huh and at 200+ mph they have to be up to the task. So thats going to hurt a bit.

Heres a shot if the back end with the thrust vector unit hanging down.  Smiley  This plane "in the right hands" is capable of some crazy stuff with canards and thrust vectoring. Cheesy

Real nice! The quality of the retracts look very good too, especially for the price.

Turbine runs very sweet, great combo.
