This is the evolution of my F-104 GLSM. It is 50% bigger-1/2.7 scale-so it can be easier to see, is very fast and manueverable. But, like the LSM, is for the advanced RC pilot. Flap rate has been slowed for better transition in takeoff and landing phases; flaps are necessary for takeoff! Note also:Brakes are on 3 Pos., switch with 100% full up, 50% centered, off in down position. It takes a little to get used to but can be real rewarding to fly! Have Fun!!
