What a BLAST to fly. Friends kept passing my transmitter around for all to fly it. Two of them are placing orders for F22 soon. Keep these great planes coming.
I like the kit. would prefer instructions sent with the kit. I haven't had a chance to fly it yet. love the grafics, good looking.
Have not had the chance to maiden it yet. Just completed the build and I have to say it was a joy to build. Everything fit together perfectly and the picture directions worked out well. It was quite the relaxing build.
Built this and just maidened it a couple weeks ago. I really like this pkane. Goes slow or fast. If you get into trouble pull both sticks back and it floats to the ground. This is something you can fly in a very small space even at low rates. Four of us fly these together at a school yard and have fun in formation
Update from my previous review. Flew it several times today. What a cool plane. Flies great. Floats like a feather. Mine weighs 8 oz even. In a headwind, at zero throttle, it just floats like a leaf, very slowly coming down.
Vertical performance is stellar with the recommended power system.
Very, very rugged. I looked down at my Tx timer when I was low, flying in wind, and it smacked the paved runway real hard. I saw something white fly off of it. I thought something broke. It was just my battery. There was zero damage to anything.
I do wish this plane had rudders, and I constantly found myself working the rudder stick on my Tx, out of habit. Rudders would be nice for hammerheads, knife edge flight, and for turning better while doing harriers.
I am very pleased with this plane. It's a winner.
Just finished building mine. Will update with a flight review, after I have flown mine.
Yet another TH great kit! Wonderfully made. Everything fits properly. Nicely designed. Great quality.
I would suggest an update to the instruction manual for this particular plane. I had no problems, but I have built well over 200 planes. The manual pretty much has only pictures, with virtually no words of instruction. This might be challenging for a relative new builder. Hint: Suggested control throws would be very helpful. I can gauge that on my own, but a newcomer to the hobby might not be able to do such.
Running through my setup check on my bench, the suggested power combo has way more than enough power to fly this bird wonderfully.
When the weather permits it here, I will fly mine and either update my review, or add another review.
Hats off (again) to TH for yet another great plane, and outstanding customer service. For the record, I ONLY buy TH planes now. I love their stuff. Great value and great company!
I love this F22. I have many planes, but this is the most fun to fly. I am just slightly better than a novice, but this plane makes people think I am an expert. It is easy to fly after you learn on a trainer. I bought 6 when they were on sale. This plane got my friends interested, so I'd give one to a friend. The new model has a rudder option. I haven't tried it yet. But it is difficult to believe the original design could be improved upon.
The Twisted Hobbys F-22 is about as much fun as you can have for $65 bucks! A great flying profile jet, capable of just about anything. With the recommended TH power set up this model can handle a lot of wind. Incredibly durable and insanely maneuverable, this model is also very easy to handle and would be a great choice for a novice wanting to get into foam jets. Not a fast plane, simply a predictable, fun to fly prop jet that will do anything that you want it to do.
If you are looking for flat out speed, this is the wrong airplane for you. If you are looking for plain old fun, this one will fit the bill. First of all, it is super stable and loves high alpha attitudes. Inverted power off produces a perfect elevator maneuver. Launches and lands easy.
Definately on my frequent flyer list.......
built a few fun jets in my day and these are a great transition and pleasure to build and fly.
I've built tons of park jets, F-22, F-35, T-50, F-18, SU34, MiGs, deltas, etc... Some fly slow, some fly low, some do both really well. When it comes to high alpha flight, I'm an addict! The only shortcoming with those scratch-built jets is that they're made from depron and therefore they're very brittle and unforgiving in a crash. That's where this F-22 has all those others beat, it can take a lot of punishment, plus it's so light and designed so well that it fly's like a dream! I fly inches above the ground inverted all day long with this plane, without fear of destroying it if I mess up. Also it has better slow flying control inverted than right side up so I'm encouraged to practice my inverted flight every day! Just an amazingly FUN plane to fly all the way around!
A flying buddy has 2 Raptors and enjoys them very much. He let me fly his and I immediately noticed that it could be improved with addition of rudders. I was able to control the yaw at very high angles of attack which I could not do without rudders. Loops are about two body lengths in diameter. Rolls are a blur. It's great! Low and slow is exciting. This is a well engineered plane.
I used a third servo located just behind the prop slot and two carbon fibre pushrods with middle supports.
