We are extending huge appreciation for the massive interest during the development phase of the Parkflyers International Grumman F-14D Tomcat G1R-S. The nomenclature is quite long and it added new "S" affix. The "S" would simply an easy code for "Swinging Wing", as this new parkjet design possesses direct drive swinging/retractable wings like the real Tomcat.
We had been experimenting with options and finally the direct drive was chosen as it simplified the retractable wings mechanism in putting the realism of the real F-14D into this parkjet design.
The design phase is completed at this moment. The next phase is to generate simple construction guide and document it, in order for builders and flyers to have proper construction steps as well as cosmetics (i.e. decals) to make this parkjet design built and flown really nice.
Three of us (Bimo, Jeff and Jim) are just a bunch of RC scratchbuilt enthusiasts with crazy ideas and passion to share our excitements with the world. We have been receiving tons of support from our friends from many countries and communities.
