Default New boomer?

Hello
I heard a rumor that a new Boomerang is in the works. Does anyone know if it is more to this than just a rumor?

Best regds

I hope not... They just clog up the sky and get in the way of proper model jets.

The "Exige" thread was first posted in 2011. Would that still make this "new"? I don't know. It's only for UK distribution anyhow.

Now that would have been a major deviation from the trad Boomer style:-) Looks like a Turbinator. It is definately not the Exige, that was shown at JetPower a few years ago. Maybe time for Mr. Boomerang himself to chime in with some details?

-1, Boomers are great. I love seeing guys fly them. I loved mine when I had it. These are great jets for all skill levels.

That's what I thought at first but it isn't. Here is a pic of a Reaction ARF.

"A spud...." I think Americans should adopt that kind of terminology. It's certainly better than other more nasty, derogatory labels.

But seriously Boomerang haters - what's wrong with owning/flying/viewing a Boomerang? I was gonna buy one for my first jet. Do you Boomerang bashers have a suggestion for a first jet?

Man, get one! They are awesome as a first jet! Probably the best first jet trainer out there. And you will have fun flying it.

I'm with Andy. Love the Boomers. My Elan is my " Go to Jet" Always ready to fly . Takes off and lands nearly anywhere. P-80 SE for power and pro-link landing gear. Can't beat it. It is the only model I have ever replaced. I crashed my first one by trying to fly without the carbon wing tube with disasterous results, turned around and bought another. Only time I have ever done that .

Some of the best pilots I know fly boomers as second or third jets. I don't own one but I would if I happened upon a good one in a deal. They seem to be really great short field / obstacle field / grass strip airplanes and good demo jets for general model airplane events to show the crowd what a turbine jet is and how attainable one is. Put smoke and a good engine in one and it's a lot of fun too. What fun is a Nascar circle track jet when with a Boomer you can do pretty much anything? No need to hate, just relate! (now that's not a Britishism at all is it). Boomers are multi cultural after all.

There is a new color scheme for the Boomerang Elan line up!

white/black and red, it looks great!

I have a Carf Tutor and Ultra Lighting plus turboprop converted Extra.

But my goTo plane is Boomer Elan. I can fly this thing out of almost any field, in any weather condition. Not as pretty as the other ones but sure is a workhorse.

Go to any rally. When the conditions get crappy - crosswinds, etc. look and see which jets are flying. It's the Boomers, Reactions, etc. while all the "real jets" sit in the pits.

Bring on the Boomers. [8D]

I agree, one have to love the Boomers. Probably no other plane has introduced jetflying to more people than these birds. Just hope the rumor is correct, and that a new one is about to surface.

My Boomer was great right untill the point where it exploded on a knife edge pass. Maybe that's why the slang name is "BOOMER" because it made a hell of a boom when it let lose.
THEY ARE UNSAFE FOR THAT REASON ALONE.....
