Default Dolphin II

Well about 5 weeks after I crashed my Dolphin due to a wind shear my new one arrived in great shape. A short 3 day trip from China and it is in perfect condition...not a scratch. Paint job stunning, glue joints perfect, nice filets, control horn slots have nice wood blocks, extra canopy. I cant be happier. If you havent seen a recent FB jet you will be surprised as they build a magnificent jet. Carbon fiber laminate formers, Airex layup, CF in high stress areas. As far as I am concerned they lead the pack in building a quality ARF.

Eric Clapp is a great guy to deal with. Great communication and made sure everything was correct. Thanks Eric and thanks FB for a great jet!

Sorry to hear that the weather gods decided to destroy your last Dolphin. Great paint scheme!

It flies amazing very fast (200+mph) but with the latest modifications made on production model plane will fly slower than the Dolphin. You guys can see Demo flights and try it for your self at Florida jets we will have buddy box setup for anybody to try.

Ravill,
Thanks for the compliments on the color scheme used on Tom's Dolphin. This scheme is proprietary and may be ordered only through A & E Jets USA a division of Jet Central USA. It is available on Dolphin and Dolphin S as well as three other colors. . .Base Yellow with Blue, Base White with Red and Base Green with Purple. The trim colors are coordinated to match. You can also request your personal colors with this eye catching design.
Our Swordfish demo is expected in several weeks with yet another proprietary color scheme.

Last, all Fei Bao Jets are on sale for the month of March into April 15th. Most jets are in stock at the factory awaiting sale and paint selection. Delivery time therefore is reduced substantially. . .

Give me a call @ 941-468-1246 as I love to talk ! Orders require only your 50% deposit with balance due at shipping. All jets shipped via DHL or FedEX to your door. Delivery time after departure from the factory is 3-5 days.
