• As manufactured by World Models and distributed in North America by Airborne Models
• Powered by Fuji Imac model ‘BT-86EI’ horizontally-opposed twin currently swinging a 24/10 wood prop.
• “EI” in model designation refers to ‘electronic ignition’ whose function is to advance or retard the ignition timing to optimize starting ease without compromising on optimal timing for top end performance.
• Access to the manually-operated choke (as well as the high and low speed needles) is through the lower front of the cowl
• Nine servos total on board…four aileron servos and two elevator servos are Futaba model ‘S9451’ and the two rudder units are Hitec model ‘HS-5945MG’. All are high speed, high torque units with digital amplifiers supplying power to coreless motors driving dual ball bearing-supported, all metal gear trains
• Ninth, on the throttle, is analogue ball bearing Futaba model ‘S3008’
• Fibre optic servo extensions used on the two outboard aileron servos, the four mounted in the tail grouping plus one more for the throttle servo
• Four aileron servos are connected also through a Futaba four channel servo synchronizer for ease of adjusting.
• Power for all on-board avionics (including the engine ignition module) is supplied by a pair of 2s1p, 2200MaH lithium polymer packs. A pair of 8 amp, switching regulators are incorporated for redundancy (diode-isolated from each other) and switched with shorting plugs to eliminate the need for external switches
• LED’s, visible while flying through externally-mounted lenses, flash different colours should the supply voltage of either pack fall to a critical level. The only externally-mounted switch serves the ignition module. Please note that this redundant power supply system was installed after the pictures were taken and so does not appear in any
• Fueling is through a Great Planes gas ‘Easy Fueler Valve’
• Model has been flown one single flight…rock solid in the air as one would expect from such a model… purpose-designed and built for precision aerobatics
• All ready for the upcoming flying season…just install your receiver, fuel, fire and fly it
• Over $2500. invested originally
• Price reduced to almost half that amount for quick sale at $1399.
I am listing several prepared r/c models on this site suggesting sell prices that I feel are fair. If the interest is sincere, I will negotiate fairly such that both parties come away feeling they’ve been treated that way. Realistically, I know I can not expect to recover anywhere near the original cash outlay. I will try to respond to all enquiries in a timely fashion.
