That looks very nice indeed. Might I be rude and ask how much that little lot set you back.

Looks like a Kingtek K80 would go very nice in her.

Yes.

Perfect turbine will be new big block P70 case unit, light weight is needed because of short nose. May even go P-70 or P80SE in mine

Here is my old wooden girl to inspire you. This has a bit of an incidence problem going on and needs a huge bootfull of down elevator to fly level. She does however fly quite nicely. She is the small Sterner one. She now has red wing tips cos I couldn't see her in the air well..................... All Silver not good

Greetings and Happy Holidays to all !

Jet Central USA wants to remind anyone interested in Der Jet Model Classic Vampire or Cougar, we are the exclusive importer/distribution source for North and South America. We service Europe (not the UK) as well.

Chriqui purchased his Vampire from us and is most pleased with the exceptional service received as well as the extreme high quality ARF Vampire as depicted and supported in his posted photos.

Vampire manual will be written in complete detail as evidenced by the excellent Cougar manual supplied with each and every kit and available by email request. Manual will commence as soon as our production kit arrives.

Vampire prototype originally flew with our Super Eagle of 30lb of thrust. Immediately, it was determined this was far too much. Our Rabbit was then installed with excellent results. . .Just over 19 lb of thrust proved performance to be "scale perfect."

Vampire orders are accepted by email @ [email protected] We accept PayPal (+3%) or bank wire transfer to our account. Orders are FIFO. . .First in - First out. Currently we are in backorder with delivery estimated to be 8 to 10 weeks. Production capabilities were increased just last week however, quality is first and will not be sacrificed to rush orders.

Vampire complete ARF kit is $3,850 delivered via FedEx to North America. Customers add $100.00 shipping to Europe and South America.

Thanks. . .please email or PM me through RCU.

Regards,
Eric Clapp
Jet Central USA
