Just an amazing Prop Jet model, especially with the Electric Power System. It has been perhaps 2 years that I have not flown it so, I got the step stool and lower it down from hanging all this time. Dusted it off and checked all systems and afterwards, headed to Moon Port on Sunday, 01-26-2020. It flew for 3 flights and didn't disappoint!

Hello good people!

It has been nine (9+) years and it is still flying nicely! Time and the sun has taken it's toll and soon a re-covering will be in order.

I purchased this from a very nice gentleman from Brooksville, Florida and who I still purchase models from to this day.


It has been a long time and just can't believe this model still places a BIG smile on my face!

Due to the Holiday Activities I have NOT been able to tackle the Scale Printed 3D 9-Cylinder Engine Kit project, however, I did take advantage of ordering a brand NEW Master Airscrew (MAS) 3-Balde, 10 X 7 X 3 Propeller from Horizon Hobby right before XMAS.

It came in speedy priority and I wasted no time and went to work on installing it over the XMAS holiday and finally this morning, January 1st, 2020, I was able to try it out. It is one of their (MAS) new designs with decals on each blade.

It practically transformed this model while using the STOCK Park Zone 480 (960Kv, normalized to 910Kv due to Dr. Kiwi's testing) and it went beyond my expectations just like the older MAS 3-Blade without the decals. As far as I can tell the Airfoil is the same in comparing this new Prop to the older ones.

Believe me, these propeller will NOT break. Your model will be completely destroyed before anything happens to this propeller! Don't ask me why I know!

Flight was just amazing with half throttle it cruised like a home sick dove and continuous KNIFE EDGES was the DEAL as it performed fantastic!...Continue Reading
