original concept of the Boomerang design was a model which was slower
than the available jet trainers, large and easy to see in the air.
A model able to take off and land reliably from a rough grass runway
and would be an easy to fly jet trainer.
The result by far exceeded the original design idea. This large
twin boom model, 8ft span and 8ft. long has turned out to be something
quite exceptional. Although it is a large model it breaks down easily
to fit into a car. The construction is conventional balsa, ply and
light ply, with obeche skinned wings.
has proved to be capable of advanced aerobatics, a slow speed performance
which has to be seen to be believed, and a fair turn of speed flat
out. Flown at the British Nationals in 2002 it won the prestigious
Windsock Trophy Shield for the best flight of the day on the public
display line, and at Florida Jets 2002 won the exceptional performance
award, again for its amazing flight performance. Ali Machinchy flew
it on both occasions.
It is a pussycat to fly and the perfect first jet trainer powered
by an 18 or 27lb. thrust turbine. The prototype used a Jetcat P80,
and later a Jetcat P120.
kit has been designed for quick and easy building, and although
it is a large model and definitely not ARTF, it goes together fast
and accurately due to the CNC cut ply, liteply and balsa parts,
which all snap together to ensure locations.
It is not necessary to glass the finished model. The original was
covered in Profilm. It can be built with or without flaps, as the
landings are slow and easy, even without them. Boomerang has quite
a glide in the event of a flame out. The landing gear is fixed but
with a simple modification (supplied in the kit) retracts can be
fitted. Full length hatches allow easy access to all the "works",
radio, ECU, turbine and accessories, batteries, tank, etc.
Boomerang will out fly any turbine trainer currently available.
You will love its easy handling and "presence" in the
air and the good value it represents, knowing that you do not have
to buy expensive fuel tanks, landing gear, brakes, or retracts.
With a modern turbine that operates on one channel, it could be
flown on only 4 channels with Y-leads to ailerons, rudders and steering!
It is a very complete kit.
