Cool Kingtech presents the all new T1 sports jet

Kingtech is proud to distribute the all new T1 sports jet. This jet was previously called the (fortune). We are calling it simply the T1. I just received one of the two Kingtech demo planes yesterday and I am blown away with the quality. Its very well made and constructed with airex. Ply bulkheads with carbon fiber reinforcement where needed. The paint is very nice and smooth. all the markings are painted on with clear over them so their is no step and no seam line. The ARF comes with pipe gear and fuel tank. I will get an official price today for it.

We will be showing this plane off at Kentucky jets for anyone interested in it. I only have a week until I leave so its going to be a fast build. I will post as many pics as I can. One of my favorite things about the plane is its size. Its not small and not gigantic its just right in the middle. Very easy to manage. Also the tail surfaces and wings are very easy to remove and reinstall making transportation easy. Another good thing about it is the look. Some of the other sports jets look like tadpoles with the canopy-blended nose section. The T-1 has a removable nose.

With the weight I would say anything from a 100 size up to a 180 size. I think a 160 would be the sweet spot for weight and performance and a 120 will also work well. I think we are sticking a 170 in this plane simply because we have it sitting here doing nothing.

Also another thing I love is the forward canopy has hatch latches that hold it on and 2 magnets that hold it in the locked position. Pretty cool setup so no tools or anything else to access the front section. Simply slide the canopy forward and it pops off.

Good looking bird, kind reminds of the AD Exocet. Any other planned paint schemes?

Price will be $1760.00 plus shipping. Includes gear pipe and fuel tank. Kingtech will stock some in the US with the schemes most people want. If you have a scheme in mind give us a 3 veiw of what you want and if its nice then we will look into stocking those if everyone likes it. Keep in mind these are all painted outside the mold with no seams. All markings are painted on also.

Nice! Could be a game changer. Will they be stocked in SoCal for local pick-up?

Not sure..

Got some work done today. Servos on flaps ailerons rudder and elevators all done. Next will be wiring the extensions and receiver. Waiting on the turbine and landing gear. If I had everything here I could build this thing in 3 days easy. The gear and some other air system parts won't be here until late next week. Also got fuel tank done . I hysoled a vent in the top of the tank and filled the 2 brass tubes with hysol to seal them up. I don't like bending a tube for a vent line.
