Hi Patty,

I wanted to send along a picture of my 1:7 F-18. You guys did an amazing job on this plane! Hats off to Rob and the BVM team for all the assistance with the maiden at Jets Over Kentucky. I have several flights on it now and it flies amazing. Itís powered by Swiwin 170 with Cortex Pro onboard along with Spektrum IX20 for guidance. Looking forward to my next BVM jet!

Hello Patty,

I wanted to send you a photo of my second BVM model. This F-18 1:7.75 scale follows the same great lineage as my 5 year old BVM Cougar. This Hornet is powered with a King Tech K160 G2 and uses a DX 20 for guidance. Also a Demon Cortex Pro on board for the windy days. The Hornet flies faster and maneuvers quicker than the Cougar, but in the end they are both unbeatable models for any day flying and easy for one person to handle. It is the perfect hanger mate for my BVM Cougar.

Thanks again for all the great help the BVM staff is famous for.

Hi Rob, Heather and Patty,

Here are some pictures of my BVM F-18 1:7.75 Scale PNP this past weekend at MN Jets. This is a great flying model that draws a lot of comments when people get to see it. Thank you for all the continued support providing high quality models and great customer service!
