Quick build? One customer had his fuselage assembled within half on hour. He flew it within the week.
We have had many reports from customers about the superb flight characteristics of the Super Reaper.
Take off from grass is no problem even with smaller turbines, and the smoothness of flight was often mentioned.
Several pilots who have flown Hotspot/Kangeroo models said they preferred Super Reaper!
'Exellent first flight, plenty of power from MW54, very smooth, and stable, easy to land'.
'smoothest climbout ever...holds level flight on 1/2 stick (MW54)...really manouverable but stable..'
What more can you ask for in an everyday flyer sports jet - good looks, inexpensive, good flying characteristics,
short field take off and landing capability, wide range of engine selection and minimal build time.
Did I mention this thing flies GREAT! HA!
JET TRAINER? The REAPER,
Are people who are looking for a jet trainer wishing to learn to fly? I dont think so.
If they are I suggest they learn on a conventional trainer first.
The Reaper has the following qualities.
Cheap and quick to build.
Easy to dismantle and transport.
Easy installation, lots of room, easy access.
The model is intended to enable new turbine owners to get airborne quickly,
to allow turbine experiance to be gained.
He can then go on to build the super scale jet he really wants. (See our range!)
The Reaper is ideal for the smaller MW54 engine, but can handle high speed with bigger engines.
customer with MW54 engine reported level flight at 146 mph.
Another customer with MW54 uprated to 12 lbs thrust, achieved 200 mph with his Reaper!!
