it would be cool if HET offered a primer surface version, so we can paint them as we please as well....

cant wait till this comes out....the flying qualities look to be as good as some of the higher dollar sport jets..

That's what we're aiming for!
If you were there, I would've let you have go, she's a very sweet flyer for sure! And at the projected price, it will be a great way for the average joe to step up to a very high performance jet without killing off your life savings.


We're also working with the factory on some proposed color schemes, and yes, regular ole' primer is one of them! Although I gotta say that the paint jobs done out of the factory are very neat and crisp... they just need a little inspiration!

Great vid...marketing doesn't get much better than that...don't think you'll have a problem shifting them once they are in stock. Form an orderly queue please

Perfect, the size is right, decent wingspan and fuse size, good to see it next to someone. All these new HK jets lack one thing, size, 1m wingspans are not my idea of a 90mm jet.

Hopefully the colour schemes are finalised in the next few weeks as I will be building one of these as a demo jet soon as I can get an airframe.

You'd hope it would be no more than the 90mm L39 and F16...so $349 maybe? Or maybe a special intro price of a bit less? We can always hope.

I have to get on the waiting list for this one
I had the ver.2 90mm and had over 75 flights on her before i folded the wing up It was a great flyer. If the new one is half as the old one I'll take two please

Vic - What are your impression on the retracts ?

Looks like one of the mains failed to extend and then folded.

I am personally spoiled by electric retracts, so the next one I build will have E-retracts, but the stock HET Air/Spring retracts with their killer suspension struts work awesome.

That incident was from the maiden flight... I deployed gear when I was going way too fast. Subsequent flights had gear down and locked just fine (the video shows a nice clean landing later that day).
