Elan Jet for sale
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Up for sale is my beloved Elan, this is a very nice flying Jet, predictable, fast and probably the best looking from Boomerang Jets.
The Jet has about 40 flights on it, no crashes. For some reason there was a couple of small 1in stress cracks in the middle of the bottom of the booms, not sure why or how they got there but have been properly repaired from the inside, If I didnít mention it you probably would know.
The Elan has a freshly redone Ram 750 (Ibelieve17-18lbs)that runs flawless, it was a very unused air start 750 and I sent it to RTI in Florida to look at and see if it was worth upgrading. Carlos mentioned the inside was like new and was worth upgrading , so out came the wallet. Carlos rebuilt it to todayís standards, it scoots the jet around pretty good.
-turbine wheel was machined to accept todayís standard turbine bearings
-Turbine was rebalanced
-new temperature probe installed
-new front housing and starter motor installed
-new Pump, valves and GSU and GSU
(This is a full auto start turbine)
Essentially this is a new turbine, the burn can was as good as new so it was not replaced, there are no nicks or damage on the turbine. The ECU reads 5hrs since new and never a flame out.
The ECU, was Bob Prices latest version last year and has much better parameter control than Rams original, this is the same unit that RTI uses on their own turbines, the turbine runs great
The retracts are by Model Aviation Products and are one of the best retract sets out there, the struts , rims and brakes were all made by myself and seem to work surprisingly good. I also made the fuel tank.
All the servos exceed specification and are a mixture of Futaba and Hitec.
This jet flyís great and can provide references from some of the Jet dudes that fly with me.
If I didnít have other projects on the way I would not sell it. This Jet is new this spring.
It is too big to ship, I silicone the booms on to stop wear and tear of taking it apart, the extensions would have to be redone if you were to do the complete disassemble all the time, (the silicone is a temporary bond )
Iím asking a very fair price of $3900 RTF less receiver
