Does anyone have a model that represents the exceed f-18 or redcat f-18 EDF jets closely? i bougth the redcat EDF to learn jets and would like to at least try flying something close to it in RF6 before its maiden flight. Or if anyone has sugesstion of an existing model that would be close thanks.
I'm a total newb to RC jets
thanks

There are a handful of EDFs at the swaps, take your pick.
This one fit your search criteria:

Don't forget to install the base model.

There is a line at the download page that says "Requires:". That be the base aircraft.
Sorry, no attachments from an iDevice.

Mr. Magoo's AV is unfortunately WAAAY off.

I have a bunch of those EDF's including the F/A-18 foamy.

I've done the AV's for most of them too.

I haven't played with Chuck's 70mm variant, but I'll give it a shot and report how close he got.

which one would you recommend? the one review above yours in the swaps claims it is pretty close to real. just wondering if there is a better option?? and thank you for the info.
FYI I have no idea if it is close, I have yet to put my redcat f-18 in the air, need more practice in RF to feel comfortable!!

i downloaded chucks and it is considerably different!! much more thrust and handling ability.
Not sure wich is more real, but i am thinkning it will be good to learn to fly both of them well before flying the real deal.
I would like to hear your opinion on which is more realistic, if you do try it out.
Thanks
Mike
