If this jet is like any of his prop planes, it will build nice, fly nice and last.

Great job!

I'm very interested to watch this progress. Not many pilots are as smooth as Seb and the 'roll and pull' (bank and yank) brigade will certainly put some strain on the wings. When I saw its wood wing I wondered whether he ever let a less ''sympathetic'' pilot fly a prototype model. I know how strong the Flash series are and I still flinch when I see the ''stick stabber'' pilots check the pitch control on one of those going full chat. I know this is a bigger draggy airframe, but with the turbines listed someone who misses the point is going to buy one and try and fly it fast...

Slow aerobatics...CARF Hawk. Slowest KE ever seen on a turbine model!!

Dave got it right here.
Nothing against the Avanti, but the flash is a tank if you compare. All I can say is the Avanti is a winner if you compare it to other Chinese products.

Yes it is. This is why we decided to distribute it.
It also flies a bit like a prop plane: very linear speed curve.

I'll second that on the covering, it got into the high 90's yesterday at the field and while my Electra looked like a million bucks the rest of my (prop) fleet was saggy and baggy by the days end. But what a great flyer!

Some update on the kit.

As some customers requested it, I have listed the kit option with or without the gear.
http://www.ultimate-jets.net/collect...ebart-avanti-s

We now have the details of the accessories:
http://www.ultimate-jets.net/collect...rt-accessories

The plane is designed for a maximum speed of 250 km/h- 160 mph.

1695 for just gear, that must be some epic gear considering comparable prolinks run for about half.
The gear is 1210 USD. It is 25 kg/ 55 lbs size.

Max power is 180N class engine. Our Behotec 180 is really well suited for the task.
However the Merlin M140X would do a great job in this plane as well if you're not looking for unlimited style aerobatics.

Thanks for the info, do they offer electric conversion for the gear.
I have a 37lb turbine that would be perfect for this jet, i dont mind the covered wings. Once the covering wears out it super easy to glass the wings and paint them to match.

No but it can be custom converted at extra cost.
We can provide this service. We get our custom conversions made by GZ retracts in Austria. Guenther was one of the first modellers to offer electric gear conversions 10 years ago. He is using very high quality electric motors from Maxon ( made in Switzerland ).

Great the plan is to go no air on this one, since the gear is in the wings i much rather have a servo lead to plug/unplug instead air lines. Thanks agian i will be in touch. Saving up some money

Would any of the dream works/prolink gear set ups fit? They have complete packages with electronic valves for $1K. Its not like this is a scale airframe...

I really don't know. I haven't had an airframe in hands yet.

Yes, nice setup with large tubing. I'll have to see what type it is though.

Hello everyone.
Sebastiano dropped his price on the Avanti at Jet Power and the new pricing is now available from us:

http://www.ultimate-jets.net/collect...ebart-avanti-s

The kit comes with the landing gear included and a standard fuel tank. The special integrated tank comes as an option. Packages are available including thrust tubes.

I recieved my Avanti S a few days ago, and I am very impressed so far.
The packaging was excellent. Both the fuselage and wing boxes were built from 5/8" thick honeycomb cardboard. The bottom and sides were all securely glued, and the top was securely taped on. Then there was an outer cardboard box around each inner box.
All parts were very well protected and individually wrapped, and very well secured inside the boxes.
The quality of the airplane is excellent as well. The fuselage is very light, but very strong. The rear part of the fuse appears to be completely reinforced with carbon fiber, and front portion is glass with a substantial internal wood framework.
The retracts and struts are very well built. The machine work, castings, and finish are all excellent. My initial ebservation of the size of the retract cylinders was that they appear a little small for this size strut and wheel, but I will wait to pass judgement until I have them hooked up.
The wings are all built up wood and very light, but also appear very strong, same with the horizontal stabs. Both the wings and the stabs have 1/8" G10 root ribs, the ribs that have internal mechanics (gear, servos, etc) attached are all made from aircraft plywood, then the remainder of the ribs appear to be balsa. All of the wood parts are laser cut. All the control surfaces are hinged with large Robart style hinges, and all of the hinges are attached with very nice offsets to put the hinge line in the proper place. None of the hinges are glued, which I like because I feel much safer flying a model that I have glued the hinges in and know that they are secure.
The hardware package is all very good quality stuff. I will probably use most, if not all of it.
The covering on the wings, stabs and rudder is done very well, although the yellow is rather translucent and some wood grain and some of the tabbed construction is visible through it. They appear to have found some Chinese people who are experts at applying monokote, it was so well attached that it took considerable effort to remove it all.
Yes, I am glassing and painting. This is not a reflection on the quality of the model (I planned to this before I even ordered the kit). I was very impressed with the quality of the covering job on it, but I despise monokote with a passion. I am in Texas, and most of flynig season the outside temperatures are between 95 and 105 degrees farenheit. All film covered models end up with bubbles and wrinkles and look like crap in no time. It will take me a couple of weeks to glass and paint this thing (I made paint masks on my vinyl cutter before I removed the covering), and I will be much happier with it in the long run.
Overall I am very happy with my purchase. I would definitely recommend this plane to others.
