F-4 Phantom II Build-it-yourself Jet!

Aug 11, 2014 3 Comments by

One of our most popular plans in the MAN library is the F-4 Phantom II designed by Dan Savage and finished in the classic “Blue Angles” Airshow Team scheme.  This electric ducted fan looks like a scale jet but flies like a sport model. It uses traditional balsa, plywood and lite-ply construction and is intended for 90mm (3.5-inch) EDF fan units and 900 to 1500 watt power systems. If you can build a sport plane you can build this F-4. It is intended for intermediate to expert pilots.

    I have given away several of that size Jets because of the small wheels that need a smooth surface to fly from. Your plane looks great and I love the Blue Angle colors, I have an big A4 on 120mm fan in thiose colors, but again the wheel size. I have an F-4 which is hand launched ,70 mm, which flies nice. Credit to you for your creation.

    Wingspan 50.5in, length 33 5/8in…. come again? Please sort out the dimensions. The wingspan is clearly not longer than the length.

    Went to the savage light website looking for parts or a kit and it says discontinued. Where can we get the molded parts, or better yet a kit???
