Default Tomohawk L-39 XXXL

Has a price been established? Any idea if it's possible to power something like this with a reversed y pipe & 2- 50lb thrust turbines?
thanks, Jay

Thanks Dave. Exactly what I'm thinking. A lot of us have the turbines. Do you know the price of the kit & gear? I can't find it on Tomohawk's website or anywhere else. This model just flew at Florida jets & was very impressive!

If you can Scott, I'd like to know. 25K Euros is more than I thought. I was told 16K, but not by a very reliable source, & I'm not sure if that included gear.
Thanks, Jay

Keep in mind this kit is almost 70Kgs (150lbs) so you will require lots of approvals and certifications to fly and you will need a crew of probably 4 people to help you setup at the airport.

Far too big. This is the sort of thing that puts our hobby at risk in my opinion

Yes, also the new senate version of the uSAS bill further re-enforces the 400 celing, and now also a FAA license test for anything over 250 grams.
Ama may need to make LTMA3 for this.

Yeah, it is a lot to think about & probably not worth it. If I ever did one, it would be more of a novelty item than a jet that really got much flight time, but there is a lot against doing a project like this. I bet on top of the price would be massive shipping cost as well

The senate proposal for the FAA reauthorization bill calls for a 400 foot limit and an FAA knowledge test.

That is a long way for becoming law, there's lots of committee debate and a reconciliation of the house and senate bills before that becomes law.

This aircraft is not practical. I don't know the infatuation with rc aircraft that are larger than what is already available. There will never be an LMTA3 category, the FAA already doesn't understand the need for such large model aircraft and I agree. The requirements for LMTA2 are already a hassle.

The EDF guys say the same thing about the models we fly. I guess it all depends on which side of the fence you're on. Models of this size require too much effort for me to consider one, but I love watching other people fly theirs.

LOL, true. There really isn't anything practical about jet flying.
