Default TopRC Intro Sport Jet ~ Anyone?

Came across the TopRC Intro Sport Jet today and while the pics look wonderful (donít they always?) I was unable to find an objective review of the kit. Does anyone here have personal and objective experience with this jet in particular or, barring that, other TopRC jets?

Thanks guys,
Don

Thereís always that one guy....almost never fails.

Congrats to the team on what looks like a promising jet. Fabulous lines and simplicity too, not an easy combination. Excellent flying in the demo, and I will be looking forward to reports from average Joes with average thumbs ;-)

Thank you my friend.
I have to agree. the only thing in common with a Turbi is the low external turbine mounting. absolutely nothing else.

This model was designed by Jim Fox in the U.K. around 20 years agoÖmaybe there was influence from here too 🤨

Foxy! his DNA is all over this hobby!

This looks a lot more refined than a turbi, no shade, the turbi is great for what it is, but this looks like a composite trainer should!
