Flew it 50 hrs so far this year and only 5 hrs in my Husky. You can guess which one I am having the most fun in!. The F1 is an awesome plane to fly and the speed plus performance is unbelievable. I lucked out finding this plane as I had almost given up looking until a great guy in Nevada answered my wanted ad.Still working on better landings but that never changes

Default try this:

It seems the Evo with it's larger and more efficient flaps wants to keep flying. I have come to raising the flaps as soon as the tires are on the pavement - the tail comes down immediately when the flaps start up. This is also the crosswind technique.

That's my story an' I'm stickin' to it!

Great paint scheme!! I originally thought about checks on the tail of my F1, but my paint scheme was simplified by cost.

Default Rocket Ramblings

Yeah I miss mine, great airplane that we were blessed to have many adventures in. It was the closest thing to the F16 I could shoehorn into my home turf strip..


PS: it's new owner "Yobo" has made quite a few improvements!
