Default Whatís coming 2020?

I wasnít going to bother with this thread this year but itís been a bit quiet on RCU lately so thought I would Just do it anyway even though it probably wonít get a lot of responses

The usual whatís coming next year... Jets and and jet related products. Please donít turn this into a wish list

The unstoppable trend towards 30-45N microturbines, affordable, smaller airframes. and the end of uber large jets.
When manufacturers like Xicoy sell over 250 engines in less than 4 months it is newsworthy.

Lol I know. The last few threads turned into one but if it turns into one the so be it. Manufacturers never seem to read the wish lists so itís a bit pointless

This is perhaps the ideal time (and thread) to mention that the forthcoming RCJI magazine, being published next week, has been hugely extended (an extra 28 pages!) to allow us to print a fully detailed report of the JetPower show. This report is a massive 40 pages long, with 140 photos, and covers all the new products announced at the show, as well as others that were too new to be displayed. As a way of finding out what is new and due out in the first half of 2019 there is nothing to match!

As per usual paper copies and subscriptions can be bought through our website at www.rcjetinternational.com with digital copies available through pocketmags.

Cool Dean, I have not bought the turbine yet but I have a mini Xcalibur in the box as well that would be good for it.

Thanks Colin, your last year report was great as well. There are many videos on line but they mostly skip the name of the manufacturer when they show the models so it is difficult to do further research on them. I enjoy every issue.

I would like to see Jetcat to update the P60 SE with a Brushless Pump, fully integrated Kero start to the same standard as the rest of their range.
May be in for a long wait though, I think if it was going to happen they would have done it by now, waiting in anticipation

And they will have the landing gear ready in 2022, and the manual a year after that

That would be cool. I just saw on their website too that theyíve put on the J10 but itís 3.25m long so a bit too big for me

Iíve been looking out but havenít heard anything. I suspect BVM will re-release it at Florida Jets. The best place to find out is asking on the BVM PnP thread. Theyíre are more likely to check and answer on that thread than this one

Behzad,
Iwould take a look at the way the gear mounts are attached to the spars in the wing. The spars are very fragile whilst the gear monts are much stronger. I had a K30 in my MB339 that was garbage and it kept stopping. A heavy landing ensued that broke my wing spars whilst leaving the mounting plates intact. These are hard to repair so I suggest that you beef them up now. I aslo found that the wheels and struts where not up to much so Got some jet 1A legs and Robart wheels. Nice model with the X45. No need for flap on take off with this engine and only half flap on landing. Also bring it in with a tickle of throttle as the rsidual thrust is so slow it can slow down too much.
John
