New Jet model seen
 
6 Attachment(s)
Guys,
Just visited my friend in China he is making the new Victory EDF jets a SEJ and a Twin. I was allowed to photo the complete plane in construction.

I believe it is the coolest EDF I have ever seen. I think it is the strongest foam plane ever built. Here are some photos I took. I will post more soon.

I understand this plane has been in design and development for over a year now. I have also been told it will not be released to the public until the company believes it is the best EDF ever built.

I have seen it fly and it is fantastic!!!!! Both 1.6 meters rocket ships. I understand the plane here is a 3rd version prototype. They are building 2 more pre production aircraft before the first planes are produced for sale.

The first 100 planes will have special paint colors that will never be offered in normal production. The airframes are built and are in paint now. These planes will be flown in the USA and Europe by team pilots or reps I have been told. The idea is for them to be shown and flown as hard as possible before sale to the retail public.

I think these planes are the most tested and developed foam EDFs ever built.

The wing is a 1.6 meter single piece unit with three carbon spars molded into the airframe not added later, very difficult to do according to Tim at RC Lander.

If you want more info I will give you what I have just ask.

finally, a foamie that's different than the usual F-16's, blah, blah, blah. I'd buy this one, for sure. :)

so, is this a 70mm bird?

I'd volunteer to test this up here in Canada during the winter, if they'll send me one. get extreme heat in some of the US states and extreme cold up here in the great white north. :)

OH I like it! Finally something different. I'd be willing to test one out.. after-all, we've had 60+ mph winds for 30 days or more in total this year..so far

It looks like they have done some innovative engineering. I have a couple of fans that would work perfect in the twin version.

Who will be selling these and when can I order it?

If they want extreme heat PLUS high humidity PLUS rough grass strip capability assessment, I'll put my hand up to test one in northern Oz.

Is from Rclander. They post it here somewhere. Has been looking out for it but no further news from them. I guess they are busy launching their new fan unit.
At lest now they are improving their products....Good news for this hobby.

There are two versions and they are both 90MM. Single 90MM and twin 90MM, It's been around for a while, but in the proper Foam Forum.
