Default Mb339s

Saw this kit at Jetpower 2016. Really liked the idea of a sport jet modeled after real full size. This picture is from the C&C models Italy web site. I will post more when I start to rig it. Came well packaged in 2 different boxes. In fact the major portion of the fuse was in a complete wooden box. No damage. Came with pipe, wing bags, fuel cell, and electron retracts with trailing edge struts and electric brakes. Highly prefabricated, painted, clear coat, live hinging, all servo mounts already in place. 106 inch wingspan. Seems to be really light, I will weigh components as I start to rig.

Canopy is mounted, slides rearward to lock in place. Magnets in front prevent canopy from sliding forward. One magnet inside canopy lip and the other in front fuselage lip. Very secure and nice fit

This is the former already installed for mounting the pipe. I have mounted the flanges on the bell housing and can install the pipe that came with the kit

all control servos and horns glued in place. Need 3/4 inch servo arm for flaps. The linkage is internal but the flap horns glued in place is shown. The elevator servo used a 1.25 arm going to the control horns

Made a mistake. I forgot when I weighed it I had not drained the fuel out after I programmed the ECU and did turbine run-up. Probably about 2 lbs of fuel so I suspect dry weight is probably 35 to 35 1/2 lbs.

Had maiden yesterday with beautiful weather. This is a great flying aircraft. Very stable. Lands very slowly with full flap defection. The jet munts 200 performed flawlessly
