    Item Description:

    This is a 1-year old modified Ziroli Turbinator. It ws modified during construction to look like an FH2 Banshee. The fuselage was rounded, the intakes were reshaped, and tip tanks were added. It was also modified to have a two-piece wing for easier transportation.

    The airframe was glassed and painted with PPG Omni basecoat/clear coat. The cockpit has a pilot bust made from a Bluebox pilot figure. There are BVM "Kingcat pylons" on the wings that hold bombs or tanks. The bombs can be dropped in flight - as can the tanks, but its not recommended as the tanks would be easy to damage. The tanks and 3 bombs are included (the 4th bomb is somewhere in the weeds at Ky Jets...).

    The gear are Robart, new to this airplane, and the struts are Dreamworks Prolink tailing link struts. The gear retract valve is a BVM high-flow valve and the brake valve is a UP6. The servos are JR digitals throughout - 8611s, except for the flaps which are JR 2721s. The fuel tanks is home made composite and is approx. 120 oz.

    Electronics include a Smartfly dual input Superreg and a Smartfly PowerExpander Sport Plus. Batteries are two 1750 mAh 2-cell liPos for the receiver and one 3700 mAh LiPo for the engine. The receiver is a Futaba 8-channel FASST R6008.

    The engine is a Jetcat P-120. It is just back from service and checkout from Jetcat. The ECU died, so it was replaced with a new one. the engine runs great and is perfect for this aircraft.

    The plane flys GREAT. it is suprizingly fast, but slows to a crawl on landing. The P-120 gives the airplane plenty of power for vertical punch and takeoff from grass fields. The plane is probably several pounds heavier than a "stock" build with plastic covering, but it was built with the extra rib panel in the wings so the wing loading is probably the same as a lighter aircraft and the P-120 gives it the power it needs. Its very stable in the wind and turbulence - more so that a lighter one would be.

    This plane it too big to crate and ship. You can pick it up locally, or I will drive up to 200 miles to meet you to transfer it. It can also be delivered to Ky Jets in July (have a new airplane to fly there!), or to Hamburg, PA in August.

    The plane can be sold RTF with engine, receiver, and batteries.

    If you want it without the receiver and batteries, subtract $200. If you want it also without the Smartfly regulator and Powerexpander, subtract another $150.

    If you want it without engine, subtract $1600.
