Flight videoThe CAC/PAC JF-17 Thunder or FC-1 Xiaolong ('Fierce Dragon'), is a lightweight, single-engine, multirole combat aircraft developed jointly by the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of China and the Pakistan Aeronautical complex (PAC). The major operator of this aircraft  is Pakistan but there are other countries who have inducted this jetfighter to their fleet.

I decided to build it long ago but there was no Plan available so I had to draw a plan first and I want its profile to be accurate. So here is the final look.Power setup is electric

                                 Motor : 2212 2200kv

                                 ESC : 30Amp

                                 Battery : 1300mah

This setup gives a lot of power to go vertical. Propeller of size range from 6inch to 7inches work great but 6*4 3blade prop really made a great difference.

I have pasted a cropped photo of pilot and cockpit which enhanced it's look.

Here is it's plan. Please feel free to write an article telling about you experience with this airplane.
