    I’ve been looking around for many years for a r/c Lightning without success, then I stumbled on Craig’s JetWorks web page and there it was.
    The plans and the build guide are very comprehensive and with the online videos the build went smoothly.
    The 3d printed canopy and nose fitted exactly and saved many hours of work, so I would recommend printing these.
    One thing when building this model is to try and keep the weight down. Use a sharp knife to keep the cuts neat so minimal glue and filler is needed and this will help.
    Power to weight was an issue at first with the nose cone reducing air intake. Craig redesigned this and the EDF nose worked much better although on launch it skimmed across the ground until it gained airspeed. Mine weighed in with an AUW of 1450g with the new nose which I’m sure could be made a little lighter.
    So all in all a great project and a lovely looking aircraft when finished.
