Howard recently alerted me to an interesting video on Facebook:
Cartoon F-104 :

This looked very promising, so I tracked down the website (which was easy as I'd just bought a capacitor powered glider from them:
Aviation toys.nl

The jet shown in the video will be, according to Vincent, the guy behind this venture, available in 2-3 weeks. However, he did send me this preview of the jet model, which looks very tasty indeed:





OK, so this isn't ducted fan (more shrouded propeller), but I for one would be happy to fly one!

Vincent, who has Jetex/Rapier experience (he loves our website, he says) has plans for an 'F-4' and an 'F-15'. Should these be successful, he might then look at a more scale-like jet with true EDF.
This is a very worthy effort that deserves every jet jockey's support, so get your preorders in now! :cheer:

The 'F-104' certainly has room tor an internal L-2, but the 'Vector Board' (not Depron) body will have to be well protected from the hot exhaust! :lol:

I wonder if I could interest Vincent in a Leduc 021?

:whistle:
