SAB Avio Drake Jet build thread

I feel like kid again. After a four month wait the SAB Avio Drake finally showed up. If it all works out I will have it ready for ThunderThrust in September 18-22, 2019.

The plan is to use all Canadian suppliers;

The jet is from RPM Jets
The Jets Munts 200 turbine is from Altecare
Most of the servos batteries and extensions are from Thunderbolt RC & RPM jets
Powerbox Mercury is from Jet North
UAT and fuel lines are from Model Aviation Products

Here are a few pictures.

Re: SAB Avio Drake Jet build thread

The gear struts and wheels are assembled. So far the quality is impressive. The instructions are excellent and written in proper English
