This is a fantastic performing aircraft. It is capable of fast flight, scale photo passes, and scale aerobatic maneuvers. We recommend flying this aircraft with an 100n turbine engine. This aircraft was tested with by us with an 8.5kg (85N) engine. It will fly adequately with 80n but vertical performance is limited. A K102G4 or Xicoy 120 with a smaller can size would fit well. An older 120 size engine would probably require modifications to fit.
This model can be purchased as a Turbine Ready-ARF . Turbine ready ARF will require your turbine engine, associated engine accessories, receiver, and batteries. Our test model balanced at 2x 2s2200 flight batteries with an associated 3s 2600 ECU battery. Your battery size may vary with optional accessories installed.
This product ships in two large boxes. This requires a higher shipping price than other foam jet products we offer. This is factored into the price of the product.
We offer spare parts support for this aircraft. Please email us for any spare parts requests.
