The F15 is an iconic warbird that has seen over four decades of service and this model –
E Flite’s F15 64mm EDF shown in the “Splinter Camo” livery – is now part of Ian Pattison’s hangar.
Worth a closer look
Detailing on this model is the usual perfection from E Flite Models. A close inspection even includes the ‘No Step’ decals for the pilot as he ascends this bird’s cockpit.
The weather was nearly perfect for the model’s maiden flight on the 12th May, and it coped really well with the grassy terrain, taking off with little effort and landing similarly. This model looks superb in the air with Ian’s flying making it look like the real thing. Harold commented “If you squint with your ears, it even sounds like the real thing!”
I’m sure we will see it quite often in the future summer months.
