Default Turbine glider without a pod

This looks like a neat idea

https://www.glider-it.com/index.php/...er-model-jeemo

Manual is not up on website yet and it looks like they may be offering different schemes (I can't really see green very well unfortunately)

No idea about shipping to USA.

Edit
1750 euro from this website

I have recently bought a Glider from Gliders-IT. Soaring USA is the dealer in the USA. It took a 3-months to come and the accessories kit was not shipped. Their sailplanes are very nice but are far from complete kits. They are known for being very strong airframes.
A retractable EDF is a popular way to power the gliders. I've only seen a one example with a retractable turbine.
The Jeemo is funny design- a jet without landing gear. I don't think you'll chase thermals with it!

I should have guessed youíd already have one in order!

Curious if it comes with the dolly or not
Pretty sure a hand launch is out of the question !

I think an X45 turbine would be a good choice as well unless they have specifically designed it around the K45

I know youíll buy one
Did you contact the manufacturer directly or 8fly regarding color choices?
I think pink/black would look good

OT, how is the Muses F3A doing lately?

I contacted the factory direct.....yía wonít be pink....

And I like so much that..Iím putting a lot of work on that one, The Muse F3A has been stripped and Fiberglass entirely ...Iím in the primer stage, it will do the exact same scheme in paint...., but I have a few others to finish first...canít fly that locally....so why not 😂

Looks like it really is designed around the K45.
Glider_it Jeemo aliante jet ARF FS 2 colori

There is a photo of some machined mounts attached to the K45 and then it slides into grooves in the fuse.
Sort of like the opposite of a tail mount for a K30 in the T-1 Micro Jet.

Well no way I would bungee anything....

I'm still in the look at it...interested yes, but I never rush (anymore got burned on one $$$$$) to be the first to buy any jets....I need to see this take off from a dolly...yet to see a video....an this winter budget is already been assigned...
