JetCat P20-SE Turbine

jetcat_p20_seIntroducing the new JetCat P20-SE, the baby turbine from JetCat.
The JetCat P20-SE is the long awaited solution for small EDF Jet conversions. With 2.4kg thrust, this turbine can power any 90size EDF Jet (examples: JTM Hawk, JTM L-39, TamJets 1/12th scale F-16…..).
The engine follows throttle commands almost without delay. The P20-SE comes with the new V10 ECU. Not only does it feature an incredible small size & weight, the new bus system makes installing your components a breeze. With one cable running from ECU to turbine (instead of 2 with the older versions) and one cable running from ECU to pump and on to the 2 solenoid block.

T-45 Goshawk

Another SAPAC T-45 Goshawk owned by Mike.sapac t-45 flaps down
Mike flies his T-45 with the following configuration:

  • HET Drive Set 2W-20 72A
    • HET 2W-20 Motor
    • HET 6904 Fan
    • HET 72A ESC
  • Hyperion G3 4200 4S 35C Lipo
  • MAP Air retracts


Operational History of the real plane:
The T-45 has been used for intermediate and advanced portions of the Navy/Marine Corps strike pilot training program with Training Air Wing ONE at Naval Air Station Meridian, Mississippi and Training Air Wing TWO at Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas. The T-45 replaced the T-2C Buckeye trainer and the TA-4J Skyhawk II trainer with an integrated training system that includes the T-45 Goshawk aircraft, operational and instrument flight simulators (OFT/IFT), academics, and training integration system support. In 2008, the T-45 began operation in the advanced portion of Navy/Marine Corps Naval Flight Officer (NFO) training with Training Air Wing SIX at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.

The T-45’s A and C models are currently in operational use. The T-45A, which became operational in 1991, contains an analog cockpit design while the newer T-45C, which was first delivered in December 1997, features a new digital "glass cockpit" design. All T-45A aircraft will eventually be converted to a T-45C configuration under the T-45 Required Avionics Modernization Program (T-45 RAMP).

T-45 Goshawk

Here are some pictures of our SAPAC T-45 Goshawk.
This is still a very early version 1 model of the plane which, during this time, still came without retract mounts or flaps.

rc-warbirds sapac t-45 Luckily the build up wing of the Hawk made an installation of retract straight forwards.
Our T-45 was equipped with the following:
- HET 6904 Fan Unit
- HET-RC Typhoon 2W-20
- HET-RC Tsunami 72A ESC
- Desire Power 3700 4S 30S Lipo Pack
- HET-RC Mini Air Retracts (3mm version)

For servos we used Hitec HS-82MG and HS-65MG types.

With this power combination the plane was not only able to take off from a concrete runway but also from a short cut grass runway.

The flight characteristics of this model a very good. A real joy to fly !!



Have a look at this video of our SAPAC T-45 in action:

Some info on the real plane:
The T-45 Goshawk is a highly modified version of the BAE Hawk land-based training jet aircraft. Manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and British Aerospace (now BAE Systems), the T-45 is used by the United States Navy as an aircraft carrier-capable trainer.

The T-45 Goshawk is a fully carrier-capable version of the Hawk Mk.60. It was developed for the United States Navy (USN) for use in training.

The Goshawk’s origins began in the mid-1970s, when the US Navy began looking for replacement for its T-2 and TA-4 trainers. The US Navy started the VTXTS advanced trainer program in 1978. British Aerospace and McDonnell Douglas proposed a version of the Hawk and were awarded the T-45 contract in 1981.

The Hawk had not been designed for carrier operations. Numerous modifications were required for Navy carrier use, including improvements to the low-speed handling characteristics and a reduction in the approach speed. Other changes were strengthened airframe, more robust and wider landing gear with catapult attachment and an arresting hook. It features a two-wheel nose landing gear.

The Goshawk first flew in 1988 and became operational in 1991. BAE Systems manufactures the fuselage aft of the cockpit, the air inlets, the vertical stabilizer of the T-45 at Samlesbury, and the wings at Brough, England. Boeing manufactures the remainder of the aircraft and assembles them in St. Louis, Missouri.

On 16 March 2007 the 200th airframe was delivered to the US Navy. Their requirements call for 223 aircraft, and the T-45 service is slated to continue until at least 2035.
