Whether you end up liking it or not, you did a nice job on the paint. What kind of paint did you use? What did you mask it off with to keep from pulling up the paint? The paint lines look very crisp.
I admit it's clean, I just have to get used to the colors being so loud :p
I used Ultracote paint.
The trick with the lines is to just let the first color dry completely. Then use blue painters masking tape and only press it down firm enough to seal it. You do have to be a little careful, but it works well if you take yer time.
If you can handle a little extra weight, primer makes a big difference when removing tape. I didn't use any on this one cuz I didn't wanna weigh it down any more than I had to.
I was trying to get mine when all there was were those vids of those guys who bought 5 and then had more than 5 fully produced vids with FX and sound on them up within 3 days. Either time goes slower when you get a FJ, or those dudes were working SUPER FAST! LOL!
I want one of these in a pretty horrible way....Of course, Virginia hobby shops were some of the last in the county to get the new C strykers...so I can inly imagine how long I will wait to pick up a FJ locally.
Tower said they might show up there this week!! I'll keep my fingers crossed!!
I have one on backorder and it still says "late Oct". They usually change it this late in the game if it's not gonna happen. Finger crossing is a good idea though. You can use all the joo joo you can get
Your gonna like it,it is a very clean airframe,and mine fit together nicely.Hell there is only 7 bits of foam or so,and a really nice mount setup that should be able to accomadate most motors easily,thrust line adjustable,and only three bolts to pull it out to change motors.I like that idea,as I am not sure if my motor is going to handle the amps...
Well, that blew my mind! Now I need to try a rudder on Delta Wing.
My wife just can't understand how a grown man could be "so interested in an oversized flying coffee cup" but supports my decision to be a total madman, nevertheless. I told her I thought a couple of Funjets and a F-18 Balsa ducted fan plane would make for a great X-mas for HER. . . whereupon she replied: "Unless you like sleeping in the snow . . . I better NOT get a plane unless it is a plane ticket south for a few weeks". Women! Gotta love em. . .
I just got kicked off the local school's soccor field for flying my Strykerin plain view of the students. It appears that the students were "too distracted" by my flying skills. No wonder I always hated school!
