Wow, that TX looks great. Don't need another plane, but this may just be a future project.

See specs here:Jetpower 2019
It was posted these specs not long ago on KingTech Turbine Facebook but I can not find it today. It was also a post there that it might be a larger in scale 1/5 next year. Boeing T-X was shown at JetPower 2019 last weekend in the display tent.

Question, is this the same company that makes the MB339 for Banana? The dimensions and features are almost identical. Wondering how the quality compares between the two. The other question is that I did not notice and carbon fiber reinforcement in the pics on the website. Did I miss it or is to just not there to keep the price down. Just curious as I have never seen a JMB jet before but am eyeing up that Boeing.
thanks,
Tone

Yes, This is the same company but under different management now and they will no longer be supplying Banana or Global with these kits or any future kits at this time. JMB Jets contacted Pacific RC Jets to become the sole Distributor for all of North America and South America with a few other Countries. JMB has already made other improvements on all the jets and we are excited to be part of another young Company that is willing to take suggestions and make changes to improve their products. We have some old pictures currently on our website and are working on getting more current pictures that will be posted soon.

So I was just informed that the only way for us to get a color scheme produced is to order 20 kits of that scheme. With the PC-21 being such a niche airplane, at this time we will only offer the 4 schemes they already have. I was also told that no more than the K45 TP should be used as the wet flying weight is only 13KG. They do have all 4 color schemes in stock and ready to ship. We are working on shipping quotes and will have pricing up shortly.

Thank you Dirk for the clarification and the reply. As always you have been very helpful. I look forward to seeing the color schemes that show up on the Boeing. I personally have always been a fan of the Dutch Lion scheme. Also a bit of a fan of the MB339. Can the MB 339 come in a high gloss sheen like the boeing?

I guess the 4th scheme is the Blue French Army?

https://kingtechturbine.lu/PC-21-Blu...-French-Army_1

Skymaster offers it as well. I don't know what the bottom looks like, so I'm not sure how visibility/orientation would be.
I went with the white/red Swiss A105 scheme.
https://kingtechturbine.lu/PC-21-White-Red-Sheme_1

More info and photos can be seen in this thread
Kingtech JMB jets 3m PC-21?

Link to YouTube video flying with K45TP and 3 blade Biela prop ... no issue with take off roll distance
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btns...ature=youtu.be

Sandor at digitech is an excellent resource, he has many flights on his (K45 with Ramoser VarioProp)

I am considering the Boeing but since I am not familiar with JMB models. Since this thread has the most information I have seen about this kit so far, I hope it is the right place to post my questions.
1. What servos are used in these kits?
2. Will there be a manual offered or at least a posted Cg and list of recommended throws?
3. Is there a list of the improvements made?
4. Will they come set up for smoke too or is that an option?
5. Will spare parts be available?
6. Also will there e any other color schemes offered for the Boeing
5. Any idea when the updated pics will be up for the JMB line up?
Thanks,
Tone

Agrav8ed,
On Kingtechturbine (Luxembourg) website they have the Boeing T-X / T-7A listed and You can see the price (2999 Euro) and the plane can be ordered in two color schemes: T-X or T-7A Red Hawk.
https://kingtechturbine.lu/JMB-Jets-...7A-PRE-ORDER_1

About servos used:
Maybe it is JMB-Jets servos?

Thank you for your reply. However, I am still curious about my questions. I am aware of the three color schemes on the pacific rc site but I wanted to know if more would be offered in the near future. The OP had mentioned the would be some paint customization available. Thank you for the link to the servos, but do you have any idea which servos are used?
Thanks,
Tone

Good Day,

Barry flew the first one to hit the states at Best in the west jet rally. He put about 35+ flights on it in about 4 days. The jet is a great flyer, even Ali had some time on it and was very impressed.
Yes, there will be more paint schemes available in the near future, the factory is still working on that.

Please check out the Pacific Rc Jets Facebook page. There are some new photos from the event there. I've tried to upload here with no luck.. Sorry
