Fresh: Yellow Aircraft Starfire RTF w/Turbine Freshly Painted

llow Aircraft Starfire II that has been fitted with a Wren54 Mk2 Gas Turbine that produces 12-13 Lbs of Thrust. This is a nice jet and would work for someone that is looking into getting into jets.

It is setup as follows:
  • JR Mini Digital Servos on Aelirons, Flaps & Ruddder
  • Hitec Digital Hs-5645 MG on Elevators
  • 48 Oz Total Fuel capacity.
  • Spring Air 102 HD retracts
  • Pneumatic Brakes On Main Gears
  • Dual Air Tanks 1 for gear, 1 for Brake air power fill vavles
  • Robo-Strut for Main Gear, 3/16 for mains.

Wren 54 Turbine MK2 w/Auto Start using propane (electric motor is installed), produces about 12-13lbs of thrust, can be easily upgraded to Mk3 to get up to 15 lbs of thrust.

MANUAL START: Use propane 1 lb tank, open the valve qtr turn, use glow igniter on either glow plug, use power box to start the starter motor, after about 10 secs the ESC will detect temperature and rpm and begin sending fuel to the turbine, at this point he turbine is ready to go. 32,000 RPM Idel on kero,

The turbine setup is the best setup for a plane this size. This plane is ENTIRELY 1 piece, means the wings and fuse and tail feathers are all 1 solid piece. I can ship but the box will be large and it will all go together as 1 piece.

The jet is in excellent shape and has just been re-finished. All the pain chips, side swipes and other issues were sanded down, bondo-ed and then repainted. A New coat of clear is on the jet (note there is a little clear coat run-off on the nose but hardly noticeable).

The jet has not flown after its restoration and is now shining and ready for a new home. PM me for any questions.

$2,300.00 shipped, or $2,100.00 local pickup any where in Southern Louisiana.
