I thought this was to be called the Skymaster Ultra Dragon?

I would assume that this is called the avanti xll like the title states. Looks great to me. I would like a quick building futura w/o the futura price. The ultra dragon has landing gear built into the wing root.

Cool, more sport planes to chose from,

NOTE: Maybe call it Avanti XXL instead of XLL?

This is the sebart avanti:
http://www.sebart.it/jets.html

it is similar to nitroplanes jets: Fiberglass fuse w/Film covered wings.

Perhaps Sebart contracted with skymaster to make a fully composite version.

Nice Anton

bf300??? It's the same size as a Futura??

What is the recommended engine for those that don't want to hover??

Was this a heavier pre-production model?

I wish it had gear doors, and the fins on wings were removable. I wonder if you cut the wing fins off what kind of effect it has on the jet?

Fender. The wing fences are not installed on the wings. They are included for you the customer to install.
It does have the nose gear doors hinged from factory with enclosed main gear pockets in wings.
You could easily make some strut gear doors out of G10 and mount them.

The wing fences will help with knife edge flight.

Its a stunning jet.

Please note its a B300F (not a BF300) from BF Turbines and not Behotec as some get confused. The JB220 is from Behotec.

New pricing on my site for B300F's for those looking, a perfect turbine for the new breed of XXL jets on the market

Fly in stuff that's good news, I am going to make gear doors for the struts for mine. Should give it a nice clean profile! Glad the wing stuff is pilot installed, I know these have become very popular on the 3d planes for help with knife edge maneuvers. Guess I'm just old school and I either learn get better at flying or fix things with mixes. Still no word on pricing yet?

Thats a bit larger, is there going to just be the Avanti composite version? E.g. 2.2 or 2.3M jet?

DiscoWings:

Avanti S is currently all composite fuse ( you have to see to appreciate) with all bulkheads installed. S model comes with pipe, custom stand, 3 way fuel tank, air tanks, retracts, struts, wheels and brakes.
Avanti XLL or XXL will be packaged similar and competitively priced. Further confirmation of details after 28 October. Watch this thread.

JetCentral USA will handle both Avanti S and Avanti XLL for the eastern USA. . .currently defined as Mississippi east. My friend Jeff (flynstuff) will handle the west.

We will announce final details and pricing of XLL after 28 October. We are excited about this latest offering of two excellent jets to the enthusiasts in the USA.

Regards,
Eric

Thanks but the avanti s is not something I'm interested in with this wood wings / fil covering. I put it in the same category as the tornado/nitro planes stuff.

The XXL looks nice but I don't think the 180 size turbines will really work, they'll probably be able to fly it but it will not be very enjoyable or aerobatic.

Are there palnes for a Avanti L, something optimized for the 180-200 size turbines that has composite wings as well as the fuse?

The construction on the XXL is pretty darn light. I don't see a problem at all with a 180 pushing it.

We hope to get one flying soon and it will have a 180 in it.
