The F-18 Fighter is modeled after the F/A-18 Hornet, which fulfilled fighter
and aircraft duties. The first prototype of the Hornet was introduced on
November 18, 1978. It entered service to the US Navy and Marine Corps in
1981. The Hornet has proven itself time and time again during Desert Storm,
Operation Southern Watch and the Desert Fox strikes against Iraq in December
of 1998. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Hornets dominated the aerial
campaign by carrying out strikes, close air support, refueling, anti-shipping,
and forward air control missions.
True to the original, this F-18 EDF Jet has everything: high-speed flying,
real jet style aerobatics and has one of the finest low-speed characteristics
of any ducted fan airplane ever. Larger than most EDFs and pushers, the F-18
has a huge presence in the sky, just like the real Hornets. The F-18 Fighter
is made with high-quality foam which gives it unparalleled durability. The
Kit Version includes a full version of the F18 Kit and a ducted fan unit.
With little assembly time, you can quickly get this jet up in the sky. This is
simply the best looking and most affordable EDF in its class. Brushless motor,
battery, radio, servos, electronics are all sold seperately.
