JTA Innovations 33" Gamebird


Really excited for this one! A lot of test flying went into this airplane and we are extremely anxious to hear how you guys like it! I will post a flying video once I find some time to do it

Based off the high performance full scale aerobatic machine, the Game Composites GB-1 Gamebird, the new JTA Innovations 33” 6mm EPP model is sure to catch attention both on the ground and in the air. Developed under approval by Philipp Steinbach, there is no doubt it compliments the outstanding characteristics of the full scale. The Gamebird is constructed with the same carbon fiber technique that has held up on the 32” Yak, and high quality hardware that will greatly increase the longevity of the airframe. Excelling in all areas of flying, the Gamebird is aimed to please any type of RC aerobatic pilot whether that is the beginner 3D pilot or advanced freestyle pilot. Not many other foamies have the wide range of flight envelope of the JTA Gamebird. It is available in the Green Game Composites color scheme made popular on the full scale version, and also the blue and red “Cotton Candy” color scheme designed by Matt Stringer.

Wingspan: 33”
Weight: Approximately 175g-190g without battery

Recommended Equipment
Motor: T-Motor AT2303 2300, Hacker A10-9L or equivalent/similar
ESC: 10-15 amp
Servos: 6-12g (MKS HV6100 highly recommended)
Propeller: 8”-9” (APC 3D SF Indoor props highly recommended)
Battery: 2S or 3S 300-700mAh (depending on motor/ESC setup)

The assembly manual can be found at our website www.jtainnovations.com

They are in stock now and we are accepting orders on the website. We are leaving for XFC and Oshkosh soon and will ship out the orders when we get back.

KE Spins make me dizzy.
Since this is going up against twisted hobbys offerings, what sets this one apart?

TH kits are without a doubt a great product. As a flyer, I am really enjoying the JTA models because of the high performance and versatility. I can fly them indoors with the same agility of a depron plane, but fly them outside in pretty decent wind as well. The hardware and carbon fiber construction are also very effective and reliable.

Check this out, the next shipment of the 33" Gamebird as well as the brand new 33" MXS will have a more durable, more efficient construction technique with the use of flat 6mm carbon throughout the airframe. Areas such as the wings, ailerons, fuselage, elevator, etc. will have flex greatly reduced causing even better flight characteristics and less wear on the EPP.

Huge news from JTA Innovations!! In stock is the T-Motor AT2303 2300KV motor and the T-Motor AT12amp ESC. Both of these products are a great match for any of our current airframes.

I was ready to pull the trigger until I saw the Green/Black version was out of stock. But now I'm ready, like this new color scheme. Although I would still prefer the Green/Black version.

Got mine ordered. Looking forward to this, I haven't built one of these small foamies for about five or six years other than a Scratchbuilt Bipe I designed last spring.

Finally got around to going through the hardware in my kit. Unfortunately the square CF spar for the elevator is missing, luckily I have plenty of CF on hand so I'll just substitute some hollow round stock instead.

Introducing all new color schemes for the 33” Gamebird! Both in stock at www.jtainnovations.com
Designed by Alex Ames, the new Red/Blue and Red/Yellow are sure to be a hit on this already popular airframe.

Nice, almost makes me wished I'd waited for the RWB version, but I do like the volcano scheme just fine.

Pretty much finished mine this morning, just waiting on an esc. If I add the published weight to my present weight and add the battery looks like my auw will be about 8.2 oz. I'm more than happy with that. Esc will be here next tues. and sounds like the weather might be nice enough for a maiden. If I like this one good enough I'm going to get a backup frame in the new RWB scheme. One thing I will say, while the build on these is rather involved, once they are finished it seems like a well designed high quality plane at a very reasonable price.
