5 meters long? That is 16.404 feet! That's way to large for one person to handle at the field, or in the shop.
I don't understand the affection for such large jets.
If you buy one, you better get a big trailer.....

I think the dimensions are wrong....
1/5 would make it 3,19m (126,6") long and place the wingspan at 2,19m (86"). That would be perfect and, if built lightly, might just make the 55lbs.

I must confess I thought the dimensions were out when I got them from the factory. No doubt Smitty will confirm shortly.

Certainly it will put most of us off. This appears to be near the size of the big tiger meet one I have seen at Jetpower flying and on one of the stands. It is very impressive for sure and looks great in the air. Good luck to anyone who fancies one of these.

I'll ask factory to get accurate dimensions. At the moment 5m length makes it 1/3 scale, 2.7m span makes it 1/4.....should be approx 3.8m long and 2.75m span for approx 1:4 scale

Smitty will correct a little later

Mark's post shows the corrected dimensions..

It was early morning, and I also had the scale dreamliner (future project) on my mind when I posted..

The PROJECTED, I STRESS.. PROJECTED retail price is $9500 with scale landing gear.

We envisioned this jet being able to go from box to a scale competition with minimum effort on the buyers side.

Also comes in a custom 2 part shipping case. Even the case has panel lines and scale details of the fuselage.
The wing box was designed after the storage case used to carry munition support equipment. Just to keep the military vibe.

Again I'm going to hijack a thread, but it's for another member of the family....

For everyone who is saying.. Does this factory only do big jets ????

Taadaaa




1.6m Sparrow.. more information to come after prototype testing

Funny enough I happened to see one in about that size fly in Germany the other weekend at the Kolibri meeting.(no it was not kolibri powerd...) Looks like an indoor flyer in the sky with it's light wing loading

Going to be 3.8m long and 2.7m span making it 1:4.2

With latest techniques under 55lb should be comfortable.

Just been talking to factory and they've agreed to offer a split fuselage version as well as one piece to cater for transport and storage. Split point will need to be at inlet.

Will be ducted and likely offer twin and single engine setups. I'm trying to get them to move away from the large hatch underneath. Hopefully that will improve access to.

Few months aeay away but they're focusing on it quite a lot now.
