Default I love my Starmax Blue Angel F-18 Hornet 64mm EDF Jet

I took my out today in the wind and did some scale flying. I am extremely happy with how the video turned out!

This is something all of us need to be reminded of when trusting others with our EDF's:

Nice flight! I love my F-18s too! They are so stable and easy to fly. I have them in three different sizes.

Gotta love the F-18 Super Hornet. Started life as the YF-17 Cobra from NG which lost the bid to the F-16 for the USAF light(less expensive) fighter program back in the late 60's early seventies. The Navy still needed a light fighter to replace the the aging F4J Phantom II and the the uber expensive F-14 Tom Cat . They got the Hornet which was later upgrdaded to the Super Hornet, arguably one of the best fighters out there.

Go Navy !

It is an amazing plane. They wouldn't be the Blue Angel jet if they weren't and the Super Hornet is even better

Here is my latest video with my F-18. I don't recommend flying like this with an EDF jet to anyone. I was just being a little crazy:

PV: Yes, I know the landings were horrible, but those were all I had to work with. This was a very tough spot to land this plane. I did better with my T-28, but it was still very hard.

My flying buddy and I recorded this after some fun at the flying field he just joined. He thought my jet could do it, but I wasn't sure since the tires, though rubber are pretty small.

Watch the quick video to see what happened:
