Pico Jet Combat
||Landing & Rolls
||Permax 480, but a 400 will do just fine
||2 x HS-55
||8 x N-800AR (272g)
8 x KR-1400 (276g)
||2 + motor
||5 to 8 mn
||700gr (all up)
from wing edge
||Very easy and fast.
||Hand launch easily. With the 1400 mAmp, needs a stronger
push but fine as well
Can do loops, inverted, rolls, most of everything simple
||Easy, no bad behavior
Difficult to break but front vertical crash will eventually. Very strong foam.
The only part that broke for me was the cockpit, and the attach for the
rubber band, inside, which the battery just broke, when crashing. I
eventually just put a rubber band outside the cockpit, for flying now
||Foam, so Epoxy or Cyano would do fine. The plane is small
and strong, so there is not much to break, and therefore, to repair.
- Can be painted anyway you like, the foam takes everything
- Makes TERRIBLE noise, like or hate it
- Small, glides for landing properly, if no wind. With wind, a little more
difficult but still fine.
Little brother of the Twin Jet. To fly alone, the Twin Jet is a better
choice. If you want to do combat, air to air hits between planes, this is
a better choice as more difficult to break than the Twin Jet. Flies faster
than Zagi, but seems like Zagi would be a better slope soarer.
