Highly scaled, large size aerobatic fighter jet with a big 90mm EDF system.
The Alpha EDF jet comes 97% pre-built and includes a powerful 80A brushless 90mm EDF system and steerable nose wheel with Retractable landing gears.
This well detailed and strikingly painted jet uses a 90mm ducted fan unit to provide fast throttle response and a high top speed.
This model has many special features, such as operational landing gears, flaps for great slow-speed handling. There are 8 servos installed, All servos are of very high quality, providing smooth movement of all control surfaces. The ducted fan is dynamically balanced and the canopy is easily removed to change batteries between flights.
This is an exciting looking big size EDF model that will impress everyone at your next club meeting!
The Alpha comes 95% completed and will take around 1hr to attach wings and fuselage, insert power system and connect electronics.

If you get this plane PNF, REPLACE THE ESC IMMEDIATELY. It will fail on you. Almost every review I have red has had a problem with it, and mine stopped working 2 seconds into testing the motor at about 25pcnt throttle. When you replace the esc make sure you get at least a 100amp esc with at least a 5 amp esc switching BEC when you do. I bought a Megabec from hobbyking to run receiver the servos.
I haven't gotten a chance to fly this plane at length but for what I have flown it, it flies exceptionally when your electronics are up to the task. It has great high and low speed characteristics and an unexpectedly flat glide slope considering how short the wings are. I would consider this an intermediate skill level aircraft especially with half flaps and would recommend it to anyone looking to get into 90mm jets as long as they made sure to change the esc.
This plane is amazing. Everyone at the field was impressed with the plane. It arrived in perfect condition. I had a problem with the stock esc (it says 70 amps on the esc wrapping) and after I replaced it with a yep 80 amp, everything works like a champ. I had to replace all three landing gear servos with HK spares but gear is solid. Out of the box this thing hauls. Stall speed is very low with the flaps down. I had to throw mix in with elevator. I am running a 4500 35c zippy and I get 4 min flight time. I have about 180mm cg from the tip of the intake and it seems dead on. I was at about 170 and it needed to land hot from being nose heavy. Awesome plane once you replace the esc.apres avoir commande le su 35 avec lequel je suis pleinement deu de l'alphajet.
La qualit est moyenne, la peinture quelque peu collante. Les assemblages sont approximatifs.Le train avant meme pas coll.
Et le comble, le moteur a grill pendant le vol inaugurale, heureusement il est revenu intact.il ne reste plus qu'a commander un nouveau present.
Je ne recommande pas ce produitQualit moyenne, assemblage approximatif et le comble moteur grill au premier vol, je ne recommande pas ce produitO MODELO PODE SER USADO COM BATERIAS DE 5000MLAMP DE 6S 45C ??? o TREM DE POUSO FUNCIONA PERFEITAMENTE EM TERRENOS ACIDENTADOS ... COMO GRAMA OU TERRA ??? OBRIGADO ... QUAL O TEMPO DE VOO COM BATERIAS DE 4000MLAM DE 6S EM 70 DE MOTOR ??Se ensambla muy facil, viene casi todo listo e instalado. Recomiendo revisar todos los tornillos de los trenes retractiles y adicionar fija tornillos. Para facilitar la programacion de los recorridos de los servos retractiles e instalado el de nariz en un canal aparte. Tiene mucha potencia creo que despegara sin problema en pista de grama. Con bateria Zippy 4000mA 6S 20C balancea perfecto, si se le pone una de mas peso tendran que adicionar peso en la cola. Excelente modelo para tan poco precio, muy contento.Modelo ideal para poder hacer un IA-63 Pampa, habria que sacar el ala original y fabricarle una como la del Pampa.
Lo unico que lo veo caro para el tamao que tiene, y con 2500gr de peso y casi 1 mt de envergadura, calculo que la carga alar debe superar los 100gr/dm2.MODELLO FANTASTICO.BEN COSTRUITO,TUTTO PRONTO SI MONTA IN 1 ORA .
CARRELLI E FINITURE FANTASTICHE CONSIDERANDO IL PERZZO
VOLA MOLTO BENE ANCHE SE IL MOTORE NON E' POTENTISSIMO.
GRAZIE HOBBY KINGPart 2
stripped and had to replace it after fixing the box. All landing gear struts are supposed to have suspension.The limit screws are too long and were binding the suspension on all three landing gear. Just back them out and the suspension works. Asked customer service for three new landing gear servos and hope they send them.
The checked off QA card in the box means nothing. Check everything very carefully.
This is still a great deal
