Following the great success and feedback from our large FC1, we have continued our collaboration with Ralph & Enrico from Elster Jet to produce a smaller, more everyday and easy to transport version, sized around the most popular turbines and without compromising on performance.
19.6lbs (8.9kg) with JetCat P130Rxi turbine and fuel bag
German design, by Ralph and Enrico from Elster Jet
Extremely lightweight full composite construction especially designed for outstanding 3D performance
Painted outside the mold so no seam lines
Ultra strong and light weight landing gear mounts, with factory installed blind nuts so mounting is just plug and play
Specially designed easy access to turbine for speedy installation
Field setup can be done in seconds, thanks to the quick releases on the wings without the need for any tools, and the single elevator bolt accessed from the side
Removable wing and elevator for easy transport
Please note that the FC1 is designed specifically for aerobatics and 3D vectored flight, with light weight being key. It is not designed to be used as a full power, high speed race plane.
Complete air frame (including carbon wing-tubes and preinstalled and painted fibreglass control horns)
Servo extension leads
Vector thrust pipe
3.600ml fuel tank (optional upgrade to fuel bag)
250ml UAT tank
Pre-prepared pushrods with ball links
Also available: Full retract combo. Includes Pilot-RC electric retracts and electric brakes, specific for this model.
Also available: Turbine Ready version. Includes all the above, plus x10 Pilot-RC servos, all pre-installed. Just add your own turbine of choice.
80-140N for normal sport flying
160-180N for 3D vector flight – Avoid high speed, high G flying
Servos:Total x10 (x5 standard size + x5 medium size)
x3 standard size high torque x2 for flaps (minimum 40kg) x1 for rudder (minimum 40kg)
x7 medium size servo for steering (size: 35x15x30mm) x2 for ailerons (minimum 16kg) x2 for elevators (minimum 16kg) x1 for vector elevator (minimum 16kg) x1 for vector rudder (minimum 16kg) x1 for steering (minimum 10kg)
Also requires all the usual accessories such as transmitter, receiver, batteries, powerbox and possibly other small accessories.
