Talking Starmax 64mm F-35

Well, I just noticed a few minutes ago, that Hobby Lobby is selling a couple of these, one in grey, and the other in Thunderbirds colors. 608mm wingspan, 4s, and thrust vectoring!



Last year I got what I guess is an earlier version of the same plane off some classifieds, but I got the foam only, so I put in my own electronics, using also a 4s 2200. Looks identical to the pics except mine doesn't have VT, and this thing is awesome! (I don't see any VT stuff in the pics. Maybe they used older pics?) Mine has enough thrust that it really feels like you're flying a jet. Did I mention it's awesome? I also like that it has full stabilators, instead of h-stabs & elevators. That's pretty awesome, too. With that much control surface, you have to keep the throws low! Hope the added weight of the VT doesn't kill it much.

Anyways, I'm rambling now. Just wanted to point out what I think might be an awesome little jet. Mine's gray, maybe I can find room for a Thunderbird F-35?
