    The Aurora Project Announced

    ModellbauUK are proud to announce the release of the brand new Aurora 2.4m Sports Jet to the UK & Europe.

    Using cutting edge fully composite design and construction we have introduced a superb flying stable model to the market. Flight tested extensively with 160N turbines. Flight testing with 200N turbines to follow but we do not anticipate any issues with this turbine so for now we are limiting the turbine to 160N.

    UK test flying of the model detailed in the following photos, the Breitling Scheme to commence now we have one in the UK and the turbine of choice is the Jets Munt Merlin 160. Timing couldn't be better with the likely introduction of the Merlin 200 hopefully early next year as this will be dropped into the model once we've put the model through it's paces in the UK

    Test Pilot: Jamie Cuff
    Any other volunteers?

    Not only is the model stunning but the colour coordinated travel boxes ensure that the model arrives at your flying strip unscathed. These cases can also be used for world travel as ours arrived on Tuesday via British Airways Cargo with only one small mark on the box. The model can be packed away into the box intact with the entire installation, retracts retracted of course.

    >>

    Retracts designed specifically for the model are available.

    Custom made tailpipe

    Custom made Kevlar tanks by FCT are in UK production at the moment.

    Hopefully we have the model flown and ready for Classic Jets on 28th Dec at RAF Abingdon

    >>Specification:>>

    Wingspan>>

    96” (2.44m)>>

    Fuselage Length>>

    107” (2.70m)>>

    Flying Weight>>

    35Ib (16 Kg)>>

    Turbine>>

    160 – 200N>>



    I hope you all like the model and I'm sure it will be very popular worldwide.

    Thank you to all the distributors who have already been in contact showing interest in stocking the model in their countries

    PS: New website about to be launched which will feature this model so please ignore our current site. Thanks

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    The obvious question is how much for that little lot and also how much without the travel box ?

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    Price is going to be around £2600 + carriage obviously

    Retracts about £700 and tail pipe about £140. All factory fitted.

    We are looking at providing a fully installed service but quite often flyers prefer to do their own install using their favourite RC gear, turbine, servos etc. The service is available if anyone wants it

    The cases are included in the price.

    We have brought to the market the first large quality jet at an affordable cost effective price.

    Plus it looks well cool.

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    I've been following this project for about a year now. Glad to see it has finally been released. It has some lovely ideas and the finish is great.

    Ian, are you offering the 8 schemes that were originall drawn up for it? I loved the Senna scheme!

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    Ian will confirm but i am sure it is an option as well as a few others.

    Agree with Mark on the Senna scheme, it does look good! i like the blue RAF scheme as well. I would quite like to see the old Marlboro/Mclaren scheme or even better still the black/gold JPS Lotus!

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    Yes Jamie

    Pretty cool colour schemes, sure we can look at the McClaren Scheme and JPS, any scheme is possible to special order

    I am told that the plug was pulled by other interested parties and I was asked if I was interested in taking the project on so I stepped up to the mark.

    Really glad I did as when you get the model on the stand the only word which springs to mind is WOW!!!

    Proud to be part of the project, even at this late hour, and to be asked to get involved

    That would be good Mark

    I'll ask the factory regarding this scheme and also about a JPS Scheme

    The Ford Scheme was discontinued too

    Assuming the quality good it does look OK value for money.

    Jamie Cuff is a legend on the UK jet Scene and he's defiantly the man to demo this model.

    I'll look forward to seeing it a CJ.

    Some great schemes here guys, nice to see some lateral thinking

    Looking as the schemes is the plan to offer this with a clear canopy and cockpit as this really looks like a cool place to feature?

    Best of luck with the project.

    Canopies are fully composite clear. I'll take photos with Jason's request for internal structure photos

    Anything is possible if the demand is there.

    A clear canopy with cockpit detail would be cool.

    Change the record Dennis!! We understand you only like buying cheap stuff. That's your choice.

    Do me a favour btw, add up the cost of your 150 odd models you have RTF and let me know the figure.

    RE: The Aurora Project Announced

    Real smart looking Jet Ian, have a look at the feibao range of cockpits you might get one that will suit, will save having to start from scratch. Being a sport jet dosnt need to conform to a certain layout just be a nice looking interior.

    Much better website design by the way.

    We have the cooker in design stage at the moment. Will add a certain finesse to the model

    Thanks re the website. A lot of work done already but still a lot of work to do with additional product ready to add,
