Default Introducing the Mini Futura Foam Jet

Hello Guys,
We at Sky Toys strive to deliver you the best and most fun toys in the RC world.

During our quest we found this amazing little foam jet from Saikou - the Mini Futura. This model is BIG fun in a SMALL package!
We made sure the jet was up to our high standards with top of the line servos, landing gear and the extremely reliable Kingtech K-60G turbine (with NEW electronics) and this is the result.

Included:
- Mini Futura
- JP electric landing gear + brakes
- Kingtech K-60G with latest electronics and Auto-Restart feature!
- All metal gear digital servos
- All wiring pre routed and connected
- Power Distribution Unit
- Landing gear + brakes controllers
- Fuel tank + UAT + all fuel lines

Required to complete:
- 7 Channel Receiver
- Receiver battery - we used Li-fe 6.6V 1100mAh
- Turbine Battery - we used Li-fe 3S 9.9V 2100mAh

Here is my RCU ad for purchases:
http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/ite...itemId=1081924

we have received the prototype 3 days ago, the next day it was ready to fly and extensive test flights were conducted by Lior "i3dm" Zahavi yesterday, showing the full potential of this great little jet.
During these flights we tweaked the CG and control throw settings and the model will be provided with all setup information straight from Pro hands - fly like a pro right from the work bench!
Model takes a couple hours to complete from opening the box to completely ready to fly.

Im attaching some pics taken by Master photographer Avgar Idan of the maiden flights session, and a video of one of the flights, please excuse the cell phone camera quality as we were in a hurry to get out and fly:

thanks for reading,
Zvika "Zika" Jan - Sky Toys.

You mean HSD Viper (Avanti) looks like the Futura.

Very nice, now lets copy some warbirds in this size . HSD has the Super Viper "Avanti clone" and there are multiple manufactures now copying them. I'd like to see a F-15, F-5, T-38, or the BIG CAT F-14 in foam with this size turbine for power. Now were talking!
Thanks for sharing

agreed, this scheme and jet has been over done, time for something different.

Good news on the Mirage and T-45! Any pictures of the T-45? I almost forgot about the Yak-130 in this size would be awesome. If these manufacture would just keep-in-mind to use quality hardware, glue and servos they will have a winner. They sometimes miss the most obvious things.

I've seen some standout videos of this foam Futura doing precision aerobatics. Awesome slow & point rolls! I'm definitely going to venture the foamy-turbine way in the very near future, gotta get some other projects done first. Do you guys offer a turbine ready version?

Here is a couple clips of my HSD Super Viper, pretty much the same jet. I love this jet!
