Hawk,
So you've been to our field. :) I'd say it's "one" of the best for sure and it doesn't hurt being in a beautiful setting with the lake, trees, etc. Very peaceful at times. We have a very...

F-19? She looks suspiciously like an F-16 to me. :)

Yep, been there and done that whole routine. I've built and modified PNP EDFs that would barely get off the ground and turned them in to great flyers and "kits', like the P3 F16, with some success. ...

It doesn't have nasty tendencies but, does require a different technique during takeoff and landing. It, like the others, is a "rudder" airplane and performs better in the air if used. However,...
