From Wikipedia: The North American F-86 Sabre (sometimes called the Sabrejet) was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. Produced by North American Aviation, the Sabre is best known as America’s first swept wing fighter which could counter the similarly-winged Soviet MiG-15 in high speed dogfights over the skies of the Korean War. Considered one of the best and most important fighter aircraft in the Korean War, the F-86 is also rated highly in comparison with fighters of other eras. Although it was developed in the late 1940s and was outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved versatile and adaptable, and continued as a front-line fighter in numerous air forces until the last active operational examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994.

Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan and Italy. Variants were built in Canada and Australia. The Canadair Sabre added another 1,815 airframes, and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre (sometimes known as the Avon Sabre or CAC CA-27), had a production run of 112. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units.

After August’s Russian Mig-15, September features another plane from the same era.
This picture of a F-86 Sabre was taken in 2008 during the 2008 Top Gun event in Lakeland Florida.
As part of the presentation, the plane dropped the auxiliary tanks which can be still seen attached to the plane in our picture.

F-86 Sabre

HET-RC F-86 Sabre Jet This is our HET-RC F-86 Sabre.
The model is one of HET-RC first epoxy fiberglass models and comes fully pre-painted.

Our F-86 is equipped with the following components:
- WeMoTec Mini Fan 480
- HET-RC Typhoon 2W-18 Motor
- HET 75A ESC
- 3700mAh 4S Lipo
- HET-RC Mini Air Retracts

I decided to install the nose gear steering slightly different then shown in the manual.
I opted for a completely concealed installation of the steering servo.
The servo is now located inside the fan compartment and is glued directly beside the fan against the fuselage of the model.
A balsa block between servo and fuselage wall creates enough space for the servo to move freely.

2 pushrod channels are routed from the fan compartment into the nose and guide the 2 steering wires so that they exit directly behind the retract unit.

Some info on the real plane:
HET F-86 Sabre Airbrush The North American Aviation F-86 Sabre (sometimes called the Sabrejet) was a transonic jet fighter aircraft. The Sabre is best known for its Korean War role where it was pitted against the Soviet MiG-15 and obtained UN air superiority. Although developed in the late 1940s and outdated by the end of the 1950s, the Sabre proved adaptable and continued as a front line fighter in air forces until the last active front line examples were retired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1994.

Its success led to an extended production run of more than 7,800 aircraft between 1949 and 1956, in the United States, Japan and Italy. It was by far the most-produced Western jet fighter, with total production of all variants at 9,860 units.

Variants were built in Canada and Australia. The Canadair Sabre added another 1,815 airframes, and the significantly redesigned CAC Sabre (sometimes known as the Avon Sabre or CAC CA-27), had a production run of 112.
