Default Kyosho F-4 Phantom


Fly the jet fighter that ruled the skies across the world for a generation!
Commissioned in 1958 as America's main strike fighter, the F-4 PHANTOM is still in active service in many airforce's around the world today although it has now been officially retired from the American military.

Looks great! I should add this...I have flown both the A-6 and F-16, and due to their small size, they both give a suprising level of performance, box-stock. This should be the same.
I think I ought to get me one of these...

Well I stopped by the field right after work, and tossed the F-4 in to the air. On hand launch I did not need to do much. The airplane climbed for the clouds. I played around with the trims a bit to get it flying level and straight. After that I went for some glide approaches, and then low fly-bys, as well as loops and rolls. This airplane feels more stable than the F-16. I hope to have some video of the F-4 here very soon.

Ohio Av8tor, street price should be -/+ $199.99, includes ESC, 2 servios, motor and fan.
