Slowly starting to build this 1/4 scale Bf109. This will be another static display model for the same business I have built the other airplanes for. I'm also starting on a P51 Mustang build that I will post in another thread. Scale - P51...

First flight of my twin 80mm electric ducted fan A-10 enhanced with head tracked DJI digital FPV. A challenging flight and lots learnt.

No doubt that adding thrust vectoring to delta wing aircraft makes them so much more agile and manoeuvrable as displayed here. Just needs 2:1 thrust to weight ratio to push out of those post-stall manoeuvres when needed.
