The new Electra Jet is designed as a quick build kit with wood wings and stabs so precisely engineered that the building process is sure to be a delight. The lightweight, super strong structure assures superior performance and ultra slow landings.
BVM’s engineering team developed integrated power systems that’ll provide 13-15 pounds if installed static thrust (see EVF brochure) for thrilling take-off, climb and high speed performance. Cool and reliable operation is the result of our engineering excellence.
Every rib, spar, brace and wing skin (1 piece) is laser cut to perfection. Shaping of the L.E. & tips is aided by laser cut templates. Flaps and ailerons are easily assembled using laser cut 1/32" ply skins and balsa ribs providing thin, straight and dent resistant trailing edges. The very generous size flaps provide short grass field take-offs and super slow stable landings.
Servo and landing gear cover plates are a unique combination of thin poly-ply and balsa.
The low landing speed and zero residual thrust of the EVF (throttle trim down) negate the need for wheel brakes. This saves weight and money.
