Airfield accelerates the electric ducted fan jet plane to new heights with its new Sonic Piercer 90mm jet. This new Piercer is a 46 inch winged plane with a fuselage that stretches 50 inches in length. Its fuselage is designed around a powerful ChargeSun 90mm electric ducted fan unit. Airfield applied its foam engineering expertise and developed efficient intake and exhaust ducting allowing this potent combo to produce large amounts of thrust when powered with a 6 cell lithium polymer battery. The result is a electric ducted fan jet plane with exhilarating performance and blistering speed. The tone of this particular design full song is a beautiful thing.
The Sonic Piercer possesses a level of fit and finish that is every bit as impressive as its performance. Quality EPO foam construction allows the entire skin of the plane to be smooth and slick. The sleek fuselage comes with decals pre-installed making build time much faster. The wings are semi symmetrical and have winglets designed into the tips for extra stability in banked turns.
Airfield knows how to create a desirable 90mm jet. The Piercer is packed with features any seasoned pilot would want to see a jet of this caliber possess. The plane contains a working rudder to get that nose up during moderate to slow speed turns. Main wings are reinforced with two boxed carbon spars that span across the bottom of wings for strength and rigidity. The wings are also removable via screws and plates allowing ease of transportation. Retractable landing gears are seamlessly integrated into the wing and bottom of the nose to reduce drag. Retract doors seal the front retract allowing optimum aerodynamic performance at full speed. These retracts are no twigs either, the fully CNC machined retracts feature spring loaded shafts allowing the system to dampen its landings. The retract base mounts are also fully reinforced through to the top of the wing for extra strength. Built in flaps are also integrated into this plane giving this 90mm jet the ability to slow down in the air for smooth cruising and it also comes in handy for smooth landings.
The Piercer also has a steerable nose wheel to make airstrip maneuvers easy and convenient. Other features that make this plane easy to work on are a removable hatch giving access to all servos and the large battery compartment. The ducted fan unit also has a built in removable hatch allowing quick and easy access, should the fan unit need to be serviced.
This kit version comes with the CNC retracts and the corresponding 10amp BEC only. All other electronics such as servos, motor, battery, speed controller, charger, and radio system will need to be purchased separately. You will also need to assemble the plane and check all controls. Specifications:
