I know you love or loathe these but, I love the look of these. They lookedreally well made when insas them at weston park.

Seems like a nice smaller size jet.
Looks like rudders are there so AMA compliant.
Wonder if it will use Electron or JP retracts...

DepecheMode101 09-04-2019 07:22 PM

I want!!!

T3chDad 09-06-2019 03:49 AM

I’m assuming if you are not interested in hovering and 3D, you can skip the vector nozzle and go with a smaller turbine?

If itís like the Havok...the vector is holding the pipe in place......just go smaller motor keep the vector....

Nice
 
Do we have any idea on cost yet. Same for retracts?

How is the Lizard different from the Drake besides the color scheme?
Tone

I understand that more details, including the price, will be revealed at Jetpower.

Itís now on the SAB website with a price.

Some cool photos of it coming out from Jetpower as well.

Nice that the vector is an option. The gear looks pretty good as well.

T3chDad 09-14-2019 06:19 AM

That converts to just under $1500 USD...we'll see when it finally makes it way over here. It looks like the gear uses the same JP struts at my T-One Mini...which I have an extra set. :cool:

CraigG 09-14-2019 09:30 AM

These guys have been putting on quite a wild show here at Jetpower... thrust vectoring, wingtip smoke, super low hovering (sometimes just feet apart), crazy stuff. Almost makes me want to fool around with one of the smaller ones. They seem to be pretty well made.https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.rcu...93b1b34205.jpg

So the Lizard looks like a mini Drake
Curious if the next plane will be a mini version of the Havok.
I’ve always liked the look of the forward swept wing SU47 and X29 similar to the Havok

Helidirect in the USA sells the SAB Jets.

I watched a Drake flying yesterday.

No, I spoke with Stefano today and he agreed the wing platform was at its limit with the bigger one.


Helijet 09-15-2019 01:29 PM

Did the little lizard fly. What did you think of that Dave?

Yes it did. I didnít see a huge amount of the flying, but what I saw of the Lizard looked good. I picked up one of the models and it did not feel heavy. I watched the end of one of the flights and he landed on the glide, I guess the small fuel tank may have been the reason, but my main guess was with the KT 120 the idle thrust was too high to land in light winds and not go really long.
