Around the country there are a lot of people having a great time with new Electric Ducted Fan models and I see new jets showing up at the flying field all the time. The guys at E-flite have been working on one of the nicest-looking EDF Jets yet…it is an F-86 Sabre. E-flite’s ARF version of the F-86 Sabre uses E-flite’s excellent design principles and top-of-the-line glass and balsa construction techniques to recreate the famous jet fighter with excellent outline accuracy. This model will instantly catch your attention when you see it and I think David Payne, E-flite Product Developer, can give us all the important details and assembly information. This is an ARF model so you will have to supply the accessories needed to complete the airplane. When it is complete you will have a very nice-looking sport scale airplane that flies as well as it looks.
Take a close look at our video presentation. This airplane has many features that will be very intriguing to RC pilots.
