Hmmm I stand corrected. The lear does look nice in some of those colours. Lear jet it is.

Lear jets are all white, so maybe a bit boring unless one off. Need something where models look individual and have country, squadron markings.

Hawker Hunter,  A10 or Vulcan would be my choice.

 did you watch the vids on Mikes pages, Hours of enjoyment. I have built a few ff electric models fitted with Peterborough model timer. I set the timer for 1 minute, launch my Auster AOP about 28 inch wingspan and watch it do it's thing. Satisfaction rating 10. Plus you don't have to make an excuse when it doesn't end well. Those new paw engines are very powerful compared to the older engines(I have the .049 version) so maybe run it very undercompressed  for first flights. What weight are planes?

I love  freeflight.

Hi Andrew, The elevator for free flight is normally built as one piece with tailplane, not hinged and then packed front or back with thin shim to achieve desired flight charasteristics. If its glued in place small plastic trim tabs can be taped to the rear and bent slightly up or down to suit. If its a proper free flight plan or kit the incidences should be setup correctly and  most pitch problems can be sorted by moving the c/g slightly. The same trimtab method is used on the wing if a tendancy to drop a wing is noticed. I recommend have a look at Mike's Flying Scale model pages. Plenty of helpful advice there although rubber powered models the same is true for ic.
