The fuselage and parts come well secured in the custom box. All the parts are covered in plastic or bagged. The control surfaces arrive attached with hinge material but need to be CA'ed in place after alignment.

The fiberglass canopy is pre-finished and only needs the latch mechanism attached. The landing gear are fixed with a steerable nose wheel assembly. Two sheets of finishing decals are supplied and the 7-page manual, although sparse, provides sufficient photos and text to complete the model by an experienced assembler.

A closer look at the fuselage reveals the size, quality finish, construction techniques, and high level of pre-assembly. The T-nuts are already installed, and glued in place, for the gear mains and steerable nose wheel assembly. The battery and servo trays are also pre-installed.

Test Flying the UCAV Article By Greg Covey


My Nitro UCAV was Ready-To-Fly at 8.5lbs. The empty plane weighed 100oz (6.25lbs) and my two 6s EON packs weighed 36oz (2.25lbs) together. The 3300 watt power system provides a powerful 390w/lb!

We had some good success with our first test flights on the Nitro UCAV. The power system was awesome and had no problem taking off grass. After landing hard on the first few flights, we moved the CG from 7.25" to 7.75" and had much easier take-offs and landings.

The UCAV flew very stabile, even when it was flown slower. The EDF jet performed loops and rolls with ease. We discovered that when landing, you need to carry a certain speed or the plane will pitch up if it lands too slow. The pitch-up is due to the fact that the V-tail stops flying first when the air flow is low and simply drops.

I did permanently glue on the wings for added structural integrity. The rather soft landing gear act as shock absorbers on those less than perfect landings and they are easy to bend back in place after first removing them from the fuselage. We left the nose gear bent backwards as it seemed to still take-off and land well until I finally replaced it with the Dubro 5/32" Universal Nose Gear Wire. The coil spring in the nose gear still works when the gear is bent back.

The second video shows continued success with the UCAV. Perhaps over the winter, I'll look into
beefing up the gear mains mount and replacing the stock nose wheel with a retractable Robart strut.

The fact that the aluminum gear mains bend upon hard impact is a real plus as it absorbs those less than perfect landings.

The UCAV was a very fun project and exceeded my expectations for a larger EDF model without breaking the bank.
