This is my F-18 build. Using the recommended power system from Flite Test. Basically going "by the book" on this build but will likely build in some landing gear in the future. I really appreciate the build videos and the unique features video to help me on this Master Series journey. I also appreciate the fact that John's designs allow for some variance in the foam manufacturing that even when things don't always match up (even when you're trying to be diligent) it still comes together beautifully and flies beautifully.
In response to Edfjetpilot, my thrust tubes were the correct lengths. As I stated earlier I did use the recommended power system and followed the build videos.
