F-15XT  Project  

This model started out as a Regal Eagle kit.  I sold the kit once and later bought it back and the builder had ruined the wing so I designed a new wing that is slightly larger than the Regal Eagle. 

Each wing panel has two spars made with carbon fiber caps on both spars and a main spar that joins the two wing panels.  

I call this model the F-15XT instead of Regal Eagle since it is highly modified.  I don't want Parkinson Models to be blamed for any failure in this project. "X" for experimental and "T" for turbine powered.  I plan to use the RAM 500.
