JHH FJ-3/F-86 90mm Installation!

You can't beat the flying characteristics of the sabre, and with the 90mm installation, it's a treat! The beauty of the 90mm fan in our sabre is that it doesn't require an auxillary inlet, so with the characteristic round sabre inlet lip and a full duct, the fan sees extremely clean airflow. As with the E-Turbax installation, 2 6s batteries easily fit along side the inlet ducting and . In flight, the airplane has been clocked at over 160mph and has a great authoritative climb. Shown below (built by Brent Hecht), the model has been covered in aluminum tape which gives a beautiful natural metal finish. The airplane represents Major James Jabara's sabre from the end of the Korean War. The ready to fly weight is 13.5lbs.

JHH FJ-3/F-86 E-Turbax Installation!

The beauty of the E-Turbax is the ability to be able to install it into any of our aircraft without modification. Below shows the simple 12s E-Turbax installation into one of our Sabres. With the long hatch on this aircraft, accessibility is a breeze and the 2 6s convertible battery packs fit easily along side the ducting easily. Instead of having an auxilliary intake as was typical with the glow ducted fan, we are pulling additional air through the nose landing gear well. In flight, the airplane is easily pushing over 150 and will climb as far as you want to push it. The sabre is also a good candidate of one of our high power 90mm MidiFan setups.

JHH FJ-3 Flight Report!!!

We just recently completed building and initial flight tests of our F-86/FJ-3 Fury with an MW-44 turbine installation. What a perfect match! If you want scale, you can't beat this combination. This aircraft flies great with beautiful scale takeoffs, nice big vertical loops and fast high speed flight. The aircraft weighs in at 12 1/2 lbs ready for takeoff and carrying 32 ounces of fuel we get 8-9 minutes of fun. Additional pictures of the installation details can be seen on our turbine installations page
