The FT Master Series F-18 is the airframe needed to begin your amazing replication of iconic f-18 aircraft through the details of the FT SkyFX decals. This airframe comes as a plain WR brown foam MS SBK ready to be built and transformed in to flying art! Checkout the selection of liveries that you can add as an option.

The Boeing F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet is a twin-engine, carrier-capable, multi-role fighter aircraft variant based on the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. The F/A-18E is a single-seat version and the F/A-18F is the tandem-seat variant. The Super Hornet has an internal 20 mm M61 rotary cannon and can carry air-to-air missiles and air-to-surface weapons. Additional fuel can be carried in up to five external fuel tanks and the aircraft can be configured as an airborne tanker by adding an external air-to-air refueling system.

Designed and initially produced by McDonnell Douglas, the Super Hornet first flew in 1995 with production starting in early 1997. The Super Hornet entered service with the United States Navy in 1999, replacing the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, which was retired in 2006. The Flite Test Limited Series F-18 Super Hornet is a gentle giant with a wide flight envelope. Load it up with 3D printed missiles and external fuel tanks for a scale look and flight experience. Or keep it light and find out what the power of twin 70 MM EDFs and the Flite Test F-18s agility can do with you on the sticks! Once built, customize your F-18 by painting and adding the included decals. Take your F-18 to the next level with even more scale realism and detail by adding one of our optional decal sets. In both looks and performance, the Flite Test Master Series F-18 is sure to be a welcome addition to any fleet.

    Goes together easily and flies even easier. I've hand launched and used a dolly for this one- its smooth as spit on a marble. I would recommend adding some protection to the bottom of the nacelles for landing- I found some skid plates on Thingiverse designed for the FT F-18. Make sure you have room in your hanger first, then build one. You won't regret it.

    I can’t state enough how much I love this plane. I’ve build two now, and I can honestly say it’s the best EDF model I’ve ever flown. The build is not difficult, and it’s very gratifying. I used the electronics FT sells, along with a Spektrum 7000mah 6 cell. This F18 has unlimited vertical, high top speeds, but surprisingly good flight times for a twin 70mm EDF. The only complaint I have is that the ESCs are not ventilated and they do get pretty hot. Just don’t fly back to back packs. Otherwise, I can launch this jet by myself, fly it anywhere, and I’d even hand it to a newbie. John Overstreet crushed it with this bird! You won’t be disappointed with this F18!
