If I understand correctly this jet will be offered in three sizes from what I read in the other thread. The Mini EXM, EXM Sport, and then the larger EXM Jet.
Joao please correct me if I am wrong.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!!!!
Mike

Watching with interest. I like the sound of this.

Are there a limited number of kits at that price?

Joao is the first manuf in a long time selling a Jet at a realistic price, and I have no doubt he will sell loads of all the sizes.
These are all wood aeroplanes, and at the end of the day, contain the same amount of materials as any other all wood aeroplane of the same size, why should they be three times the price because it has a pointy nose and the engine fits inside rather than at the front.

Great to see it show up the others out there in the Jet world that like to rip people off.

I'm guessing it is going to be a really cool looking trainer in stock 13lb thrust config, really light wing loading & fly like a kite. It looks so good though, Im sure someone will reinforce & glass this thing, put in 22lbs of umph & (depending on airfoil design) have one bad***** jet for a nice price... We'll see

I would be interested in a ready to cover version, so that I could glass it and paint my own scheme and install a 15-16 lbs. thrust engine. Are there going to be Ready to cover versions available? Any idea of total price USD with gear and Pipe? Thanks Jack.

Joao,

Will a Jetcat P-70 be ok for the Mini if throttle control is used?

Also, where can we place our orders?

Thanks,
Mike

Great looking plane and very attractive price! Only thing i don't like is the checkers on the top. Checkers look better on the bottom of the wing.

We are no longer a dealer for Joao Matos' products, in the meantime, please place all orders directly with Mr. Matos, unless otherwise announced by him. We have a mutual understanding that it would be difficult to perform as a dealer or a supplier if certain views of things don't come across. However, I am sure you will enjoy working with Joao himself.

Sorry for the late reply onto this thread as I was not aware of this mini project, which looks plenty of fun.

Meanwhile, all the best wishes to Joao Matos RC.

Cheers,
Barry
