November 2012 features the picture of a BVM Ultra Bandit taken during the 2007 Top Gun event in Lakeland Florida.
The Ultra Bandit is a turbine powered sport jet manufactured by BVM USA. It features:
The Ultra Bandit is flight test proven to endure 200 mph and extreme aerobatics.
It has a generous wing area with built-in washout for very stable slow flight and landings.
Large control surfaces for “square corner” aerobatics.
Extra large landing flaps delete the need for speed brake devices and allow very slow landings.
Model grass field suitable – because it is big and powerful, it can take off and land in short distances.
Easy field assembly – We designed the 98″ long “Ultra” for quick assembly, allowing convenient transport to the model field. There are 2 screws and 2 servo connections per wing and stab and just 2 set screws for the fin, and if necessary, the aft fuse section can be removed with 4 set screws and 3 servo connections. With the wings removed, the Ultra Bandit will fit into many SUV’s. We make a special Jet Cradle to make your Ultra even easier to transport and work on.

Now available: The new JetTeng (JTM) ViperJet in one of 5 interesting colors:
Full size Information: The Viper Jet is a jet aircraft designed and produced by Viper Aircraft Corporation in kit form for homebuilding. It is a conventional, low-wing monoplane with swept wings and tail and two seats in tandem under a bubble canopy. The jet intakes are located at the sides of the fuselage and the tricycle undercarriage is retractable. Construction throughout is of composite materials.
Product Information: The JTM ViperJet in the colors of the High Performance Aircraft Training school (HPAT) is a high performance EDF Jet in full composite design for 90mm Fan units such as the Schuebeler DS-51 or WeMoTec Midi Fan Pro. A turbine conversion to JetCat P-20, Lambert T25 or Wren 44 (see video below) can be done easily. Please check with us on suitable turbines, pipes and accessories. The model features a full composite fuselage and wing with retract hard points pre-installed in the nose and retract hatches pre-cut in the wing. The model comes completely pre-painted with all decals applied and protected by a clear coat. Further is the cockpit glued and all hatches are assembled and locks are installed in place. This model is truly ARF with all the major work done for you. Retracts and suitable scale oleo struts are available as option.
Pack contents: Fully painted and finished glass fiber fuselage, fully assembled vertical fin and pre-installed ducting, clear canopy with pre-installed lock, one-piece fully painted and finished glass fiber wing with aileron, flap and retract hatches, exhaust ducting sheet, small parts, hardware pack, gear door covers.
With nearly the size of a JetCat P-120SX but with 142N @ 125,000 rpm, the new JetCat P-140RX turbine will hit the shelves in September/October 2011. The P-140RX will replace the P-120SX which will be phased out by JetCat once the P-140RX is released.
Featuring JetCat’s new fully digital “bus” electronic control system, the new generation of RX series JetCat turbines reduce the wiring and tubing to a minimum, making installation easier.
The temperature sensor is installed internally, but still can be replaced if necessary. The valves are fully integrated inside the turbine front housing, so only a single tube connection from the pump to the turbine is necessary. Additionally the electrical connection from the turbine to the ECU, also involves only a single PowerBus lead.
The new light weight and small V10.0 JetCat ECU (26g and 2/3rds size) require only the receiver (1 or 2 channel operation) and the fuel pump to be connected. All of the latest options e.g. ECU V6.0 GSU connection, GPS and Airspeed sensor input/output, Smoke control will still be available. The power supply is provided by a 3S 2100mAh LiFePO4 battery. This not only powers the ECU and fuel pump, but also all optional accessories connected to the bus system, such as the JetCat Smoke Pump and or LCU (lighting control Unit).
Alternatively, the V10.0 ECU can be supplied for operation with a 2S/3S Li-po or 6-8 cell Ni chemistry battery. The V10.0 ECU also has a built-in, precision air pressure and temperature sensor which intelligently adjusts to the current environmental conditions. This also eliminates the setting of the pump start voltage. The engine starts and runs on kerosene.
The weight of the JetCat is P140RX-1580g. The maximum thrust is 142N @ 125,000 rpm. With a diameter of 112mm and an overall length of 320mm the size matches closely the P120SX size.
AirPower Models are pleased to present their all new retract units. Made from Anodised aluminium these units feature air up and air down operation and are intended to use in models from 9kg / 20lbs up to 20kg / 45 lbs in weight. Designed to be retro fitted in many of today’s sport models these units are able to withstand operation from grass and tarmac fields. The main pivot block is made from high quality 7075 aluminium and machined to accept a 1/2” oleo strut. Retained in a clamp type mount that ensures a secure fixing with less chance of the leg rotating. The pivot pin is deliberately oversized in a effort to make all three units more rugged. The nose retract come as standard with the steering mechanism pre fitted as well as the straightening spring, although this can easily be removed and replaced with a 1/2 inch Oleo leg. The RA-215 are available as singular units or as a complete kit of 3 units.
AirPower’s RA-250 retract offers an ultra low profile that is only 27mm in height. This retract is able to take a 7/16″ diameter Strut. Also available is a standard gear wire in 3/16″ for Main Gears. The Retract is constructed out of high quality aircraft grade 6061-T6 & 7075 aluminum. The RA-250 Retracts is designed to replace other manufacturers retract systems and are the strongest retractable landing gear in the industry for this size.
Full electric retract set for the CARF Spark. The Tamjets / E-flite retract set is based on the original E-flite 60 – 120 Tricycle Electric Retracts set. However in order to support the weight of the Spark and make the retract unit more durable in general, Tamjets replaced the original E-flite trunion with an stronger unit machined out of high strength aluminum. In addition this new trunion is now capable of utilizing the proven Tamjets trailing oleo struts for the CARF Spark. The set further includes a set of Tamjet TJ Pro-Lite wheels and brakes to complete the combo.
High performance inflatable model tire with pneumatic brake and 5mm Wire strut + adapter. Inflatable tire with metal rim. The tires comes with precision ball bearings (6mm). Tire is replaceable. Suitable for all retract mechanics with 5mm wire adapter (wire strut is included in the set)
