NO!!! I am not flying with you anymore [&:]. You beat me in the speed run. I got 275 kmh with the R-800 and you got 299 kmh with your F16 [:@] ....no good!!! it was fixed, and you know it!!!.

I will only fly if I get an 1600R in the trainer....[>:]

Average of 3 passes: 275kph (172mph); Highest 280kph (175mph). This is with J1300R (13kgs thrust) in the rear coming in from shallow dive into a straight level flight. Same day, my Aviation Design F-16 with J1300R logged at 299kph (187mph); highest at 330 kph (206mph)

Not bad for a sport/trainer jet. Lots of fun...

Wow , Thats great numbers, It shows what good streamlining does, even with a fat wing.


Congratulations.

Hey Kraivuth; Let's see what the R-800 can do with a 1600R in the next few days, then we will have all engines tested...I have to beat your 299 kmh you know...

What's nice about this trainer is that it slows down quickly with less throttle and it has a fairly constant down leg speed for a great pattern like action if you want...

more!! one of the workers in the PST factory [8D]..

The two smoke tanks you see here are, of course, optional. The R-800 comes with a 2.5L tank standard for the 800 PST or similar size engine. There is, I think, an optional 1L tank you can buy from them.

The metal heat shield above the engine is not included. This is an option and it is owner's preference. The thrust angle is adequate in keeping the heat away from the tail. However, the lower tail section heat shield is included just in case of those flaming starts

Here are pictures of the hardware package and the cockpit tub/frame/clear canopy. The optional landing gear set includes most accessories for pneumatic retract and brakes.
