For sale BVM Maverick built and converted to turbine power by Steve Jaworski (Plant City FL). I purchsed from a local modeler approx 5 months ago. I know he put approx 12 flights on it and I have put about 25 flights on it as well. Dont know about flghts or history prior to that. Flys very well. Would make somebody a great first or second Jet for an experianced/advanced pilot. Flys relativly easily off of 300-400 foot long runways. Lands surprisingly slowly. Not a speed demon in flight but its no pig either.

RAM 500 with latest ECU software ( CO3) Engine shows just under 7 hours run time and 119 cycles. I would estimate of those 119 cycles 75-80 were actual flights and the other 40 to 45 were ground only short test runs or missed starts. Missed starts are rare with CO3 software and are usually caused by some sort operator error like forgetting to open the manual fuel valve. I have owned this engine for approx 10 years and it has never been crashed or damaged.
TRANSMITTER is NOT included at this price
Aircraft is very light at 15 lbs 8 oz without tip tanks and 16 lbs 6 oz with tip tanks installed.
The only crash damge that I know of other than normal wear and tear was inflicted by me due to dead stick landing ( engine operator error ) where I landed short of the runway with gear down and fuel tanks nearly full. All structural damage has been repaired ( cosmetic paint and finish damage has NOT been repaired at this time) and the airplane has been flown since with no noticeable effect on the way if flies.
Will sell without engine for $ 2100. Make me an offer !!
Trades will be considered. I need a Jet Central Cheetah new or low time used.
This airplane could easily be upgraded with any number of the current more powerful turbines in this size class like the Jet Central Super Bee, or Rabbit. Wren 54 Supersport or Wren 100. Jet Cat p60 p 100.
Could also easily be converted to BVM EDF as well.
