xx RC Jet
« Thread started on: Apr 3rd, 2009, 12:10pm »

I beleive and i stand to be corrected in this to be the only one who has a RC flying jet model of a MK2 Bucaneer. I hope to be flying it at shows but only next year, it is powered by a Jetcat 120 turbine giving 27lbs thrust using a bifurbicated pipe. Has working brakes gear doors undercarrige and flaps. Has 3 tanks which will give me approx 8mins of flying time using jet A1 or parrafin mixed with 5% turbine oil.

I may convert the turbine to kero start in the near future. has detailed cockpit all moving tailplane with trim as per real one and working airbrake. (only static) atm. it is in Navy colors.

Send them to me at buccsociety@supanet.com and I will upload them for you, it's easier than trying to explain how to upload yourself.

Hi yes this was built from scratch but not by me. I bought it not so long ago. It is a great credit to their skill. I didnt ask the builder how he came to build this particular model but i do know he is an Aircraft Engineer. I dont make any claim to the fact I built it, i though it would interest you guys. I can take more pics and post them on here if you wish. I can also fly it for you guys when I have some time on the sticks with it should anyone be interested in seeing it fly.

I for one, would love to see her fly, whereabouts do you normally fly her from?

I have upload the image below for your interest, if the original photographer has any issues with us using the image, please let me know Roger.

Looks fantastic dosent it. If anywhere it would be Wroughton, as a member of SMAC. (Swindon Model Aircraft Club). I have to get some time in the air with her once confident I will fly her at shows possibly next year. However if there was somewhere suitable where a group could be got together then i would fly it for anyone who wanted to see it. As I said it wont be for a while yet. i can take more photos and send them to the forum. Is there anyone who actually flew this aircraft? It was stationed at Lossiemouth. The serial no is XT271.

Hi not sure of the scale but the fuselage is about 2m with a 3m wing span. I am in the process if sourcing a power distribution board for it which has to be a regulator, a switch for the system and a power panel as well. I must check the AUW as if its over 20kg it comes under the big boys league.

Its also sitting with its nose in the air which is not characteristic of the full size. Will probably have to put stronger springs in the U/C legs.

Hi thank you so much for the information about her and for the pilots that flew her. Pity she was scrapped its such a superb aircraft! Currently am fitting her out with a power box from Power Box Systems for the controls and RC gear. Will be using Lipo batteries giving a total of 4400 mahs at a constant 5.9 volts. The receiver will be 2.4 ghz The turbine has a seperate battery for the ECU and the pump. Once fitted will test the systems and a turbine start. More later, will send in more photos.
