Starting Off 2012 Right with a Successful Maiden Flight

January 2, 2012

N-Tech Jets is working to bring out several jets for 2012. One of those jets is the Hawk. We test flew a sample today using electric power. As you may have seen in my previous post about this plane, Larry Wolfe at Jet Hangar Hobbies helped out by building the prototype sample. He installed his E-Turbax Fan with custom Neu Motor controlled by a brand new Ice 2 160HV Castle Creations ESC. Battery is 6500mAh 12S Li-PO. Radio is SD-10G. Retracts are N-Tech Jets retracts and struts and control system designed for the Hawk.

Larry brought it out to PVMAC today, Jan 1, 2012, for it’s first flight. And what a GREAT flight! Take off was perfect, flight performance looked GREAT, and landing was SMOOTH!

The Hawk will be available 2nd Quarter 2012 from Hobby People and N-Tech Jets Dealers. It’s an awesome 68″ wing span, 21 pound, 120mm EDF high performance model. What a GREAT flyhing airplane!

The N-Tech Jets Hawk is a winner. I’m looking forward to a hundred more successful flights!

Thank you to Jet Hanger, Larry Wolfe, and Tim Johnson for all their help!

A perfect way to start off 2012!

The Next N-Tech Jet

November 24, 2011

The Production Sample of the N-Tech Jets Panther flew today with expected good success. What a fantastic airplane!

Next up from N-Tech Jets is the Mig 15. This is a spectacular model with tons of detail. From inspection panel markings to wing fences, this model is simply great looking.

My latest production sample will also be flown with the Jet Hangar E-Turbax and 12S system.

Here’s a pic of one built and flying.
