There is plenty of rad in the RadJet-800! With its amazing price, EPO foam and with great performance, this brilliant model has no trouble earning the RadJet moniker.
The Radjet 800 has been tested and flown to within an inch of its life and it performed flawlessly, not only in terms of light performance but also reliability and believe me, we tried hard to kill the test version! It has several impressively simple and practical features such as the plastic skid on the length of the underside of the fuselage that will protect your Radjet from the usual tears and gouges, servo arm protectors on the wings, effective cooling for the ESC & Lipoly and so on.....and its how much?
But, it doesnt stop there, oh no! Whats it like to fly? Utterly brilliant! The light flying weight means that the outrunner motor gives tons of performance, the Radjet will pull massive loops and is capable of some pretty precise aerobatics, its quick, no doubt about it but throttle back and it becomes a total pussycat, fly it like you stole it or glide around, either way its a hoot! So to sum up, it looks great, its easy to assemble, flies brilliantly, is reliable, fast and cheap....Radjet? You better believe it!

I've never wrote any review but after dislocating my shoulder trying to hand launch this I chose to warn everyone about it. I'm flying rc planes since my 20s and I never experienced any plane that hard to launch than this Radjet. The plane is nice, a bit fast and you can get whatever kit setup you want on it cutting some foam areas inside the fuselage.
3 things are bad about this plane:
1) When it flies it tends to swing left right like something is moving inside the canopy. Trust me. There is no room for anything to move inside if you have a 2200mah battery and a 60A esc.
2) Secondly, the speed is not enough. With my setup I got 155klm/h and 12 mins flight time when I can catch easily 200klm with one of my ME-163s.
3) And finally, the worst thing about it is the hand launch gaps under the plane. I didn't believe the reviews stating that it's very hard and I bought it. I crashed 2 times until finally learned how to take off. At my forth hand launch I had the accident I say above and I had to rush today at the hospital. When I got back I just threw the plane in the trash cause it's just cursed. Believe me... 2 months physiotherapy starting from today :-) .
With this plane you need either a launch pad with PVCs, a Mithril armor so that you don't cut your arm with the propeller or a baseball pitcher to hand launch the plane for you.Great plane fly's brilliantly , but the foam is really really soft and the nose and wing ends are very venerable ........Nice little foamy that performs well. Running on 1300 3S Nano with 30amp mystery ESC and HXT900 servos, with standard prop and motor. Found that the CG is roughly 290mm back from the nose as stated on other forums. Battery slides in nicely and sits hard up against the foam rest with no cutting required. Cut a few extra slots for added cooling
Propeller got my hand on second launching so be extremely careful. Also watch orientation at various angles as the Radjet attitude can be deceiving
So good I bought a second on the Valentine salePrice has risen by 22% in less than a week.....is inflation that bad?I just love this, even on the stock set up it fly`s great. I have one more left under the bench as a spare. Best to get one whilst you can.Very good flying plan. Easily built. NTM 2835 3000v motor upgrade is insanely fast!What is it about Hobbking? The CoG in the instructions is way off as is so often the case with HK instructions. It should be near the front of the finger grip recesses, nowhere near as far forward as suggested. If you use 1300mAh batteries as suggested, then the fuselage has to be cut out to accommodate them and the hatch below the canopy totally ignored. It flies great though once the changes are made.in April the price was 41.24 dollars in October 47.91 dollars or 10pcnt more for what
Hobby king is getting worse and worseGreat little plane for the money! I'm flying mine with a Zippy Compact 850mah 35c battery and it was easy to balance. I'm using the stock motor, but I switched to an APC 6x5 prop and it's pretty fast and vertical climbing is easy. Flies great, definitely worth the money!Very happy with my RadJet 800! Just one-day delivery from EU warehouse to NL. Actually this is my second RadJet as the first one got written-off by pilot error flying upside-down at low altitude... It was so much fun I ordered a new one instantly. I use two HTX900 servos and a Turnigy plush 25A ESC. Aside that you need two 12cm servo extensions and some foam safe glue, all available at HK EU.
With the standard 3cell 1300mAh Lipo you are slightly nose heavy, place the lipo as far back as possible in the canopy area. Trim the elevators so that the underside of the elevator is in the middle of the wing piece it mates with- straight flight instantly. I found it helps throwing the RadJet a little upwards, not flat as it takes some time to take up speed and it will sink the first few meters. FUN!
