Default Thunder Tiger F8F Bearcat conversion

I've had this model a while and it flys great. The model was designed for a .90 size glow motor but I substituted a big outrunner. The power is a 9s2p 3600 lipo setup.

Here's a video:

I applied some metal tape to the side of the fuselage in the exhaust area. It's dulled with some black paint applied with a cotton ball for a sooty appearence.
