Technology is always improving from computing to aerospace and the world of remote control jets is no different. The electric rc jet has been made possible by advances in power storage with modern lithium polymer batteries – capable of storing enough electricity to send a lightweight, performance electric rc jet to speeds of 90+ miles an hour for around 15 minutes or even longer!
With a 1300mAh 11.1v Lithium Polymer (Li-Po) battery hooked up to a modern brushless motor placed inside the fuselage the performance of these rc jet aircraft is simply stunning!
Gone are the days of slow, unpredictable flight and destruct-on-impact planes and in comes fast, stable aerobatic flying in aircraft that are able to absorb the shock of the odd hard landing and be flying again within minutes!
Electric RC Jet Selection
Electric rc jets have not only benefited from the advancements in power storage with Li-Pos, but also by the use of modern EPO foam. This modern foam material brings many benefits to the table, including the much sought after features of being lightweight yet strong enough to survive a crash landing or three. Its ability to absorb the impact of a close-encounter with the ground has made it very popular with electric rc jet manufacturers and pilots alike.
New pilots to the sport just learning the ropes benefit from being able to jump in at a level of jet capable of going 80 to 90 miles an hour and yet still be able to take the odd knock or two when a manoeuvre goes awry. That means the world of remote control jets is no longer the reserve of those with deep pockets, an entry level electric rc jet comes in at only around £140!
Electric RC Jets
For the more experienced pilot used to dealing with balsa wood and sheet metal, the new foam rc jets will bring a whole new level of excitement to your flying. By coupling high discharge Li-Po batteries and brushless motors with lightweight and robust foam it’s possible to achieve fantastic power-to-weight ratios – all in an aerodynamic fighter aircraft design.
Aerobatics such as spins and stall turns, flying for stretches at a time inverted and on knife-edge and the bread-and-butter loops and rolls are all now possible with modern electric rc jets!
Technology is always improving and we at RCJetShop are always on the lookout for components, designs and models that will bring you even more excitement and bang for your buck than ever before. Order an electric rc jet today and we can promise you you’ll never look back!
