NOT FOR THE AEROMODELLING BEGINNERS!

Radio-controlled jets feature a high level of technical complexity. The following main system may be distinguished:

TURBINE

Turbine

  • Turbine(s) with a maximum thrust from 8 kg (80N) to more than 20kg (200N)
  • Fuel pump, fuel flow regulator and tanks (several liters of kerosene)
  • Rechargeable battery and engine control unit (ECU)
  • Optional: Smoke generation - tank and pump

RADIO CONTROL

  • 2.4 GHz receiver, sometimes two redundant systems
  • Two or more rechargeable batteries with a power management system
  • Several servos to move elevator, rudder and ailerons, as well as landing flaps, nose wheel steering and special functions.
  • Programmable transmitter

PNEUMATICS / HYDRAULICS

Fuel air

  • Pressurized air tank and / or hydraulic pressure system
  • Several valves and regulators
  • Activator cylinders for landing gear legs, gear doors and extendable aerodynamic brakes
  • Sequencer for timing landing gear leg and gear door actions
  • Valve for the pneumatic disc brakes
FLYING IS A TEAM JOB!

Due to their technical complexity, the successful operation of r/c-jets asks for special care. Many pilots use printed checklists for preflights -checks. Because of the potentially high flight speeds, pilots always fly with the support of a helper who monitors the airspace as well as the runway. In the competition the helper also serves as a coach, supporting the pilot in properly flying the demanded maneuvers.
