Quick vid for GIAOM – Poundland type jet
Here’s mine, same model but from Dollar Tree in the USA in 2009.
Shed storage resulted in a broken tail and the wings kept falling out, so it was remodelled to form what I call the ‘Shed Jet’.
The nose was sanded and also winglets added. More recently, the windows and cockpit were highlighted.
Air Hogs Mini Storm Launcher electronics, comprising the following
27MHz transmitter, 300ft range
2x N20 brushed motors
Original propellers, counter rotating
2 channel receiver
1S 410mAh lipo
It can be cleanly flown, with gentle jet type flight or really thrown around the air !
Glide is good, helped by the KFm 2 type of extra pieces on the fronts of the wings.
Normally, any build using this set of components can weigh only to a maximum of 2oz. This is quite a bit heavier, yet flies lighter.
Excellent in stronger winds too (10mph+).
