    I like the pilot!

    It looks like a really nice RC plane. We're all looking forward to seeing more pictures.

    Casue the pilot that came with the kit was absolutly gay looking.... I tried to get a different one at the 2 hobby shops but all they had were too tall and wide for this cockpit....

    And besides......... Boba Fett is the baddest Mofo in the Galaxy, and my favorite Star Wars character.......

    And it looks cool as hell.......

    ARF....... The best way to go IMO.... Less hassle and faster box to flight time... Ive built several kits already and the convienience of the ARF setup is just too good to be true.......

    Unfortunatly, I was not able to get it into the air.. It took more time to finish the assembly and install the motor/servos/linkages.....

    Next weekend for sure.....

    Now I can suffer for another whole week ggrrr...

    Just a question:

    How much would you sell your Mustang GT for?

    I'm wondering how much it would actually cost for a 94-97 donor car for one of these.

    Its my wifes Mustang, and she's too much of a girl to own a GT... She thought (Correctly I might add) that if she got the GT, I would abuse it....

    Silly girl actually does have a brain after all....
