Working on the paint. Going with a Tiger meet idea. Sprayed the top wing, tail and fuse with Testor orange enamel. Made some templates for the wing stripes so both wings will match. I used a black marker to outline and filled in the black areas by brushing on black acrylic paint.

I was using this photo for the paint. The motor that I am using on the second jet is a drone motor. Should know Wednesday if it works.

Got the first flight in last night. The jet ended up weighing almost 4 0z with the paint and equipment I used. The instructions said it should weigh in at 2.5 oz. I moved the battery forward and was able to get it to balance. The video shows the first flight on low rates. The jet flew smoothly, would turn on a dime and flew high alpha easily. This really a fun little jet !! Thanks Buzzard Models for another fun indoor flyer !!

Awesome video! It flies perfect for indoors, fast and slow. Kinda like the FT-22 for outdoors flying. Just like @Grifflyer I am gonna start calling you NASCAR, you seem to like the left turns :ROFLMAO:
