Product Description

The 3D printed F-84f by Michael Hammer is designed to look and fly like the full size Thunderstreak. The lines and proportions of the model match the real Jet with its swept back wings and all moving tail plane.

The optimized edf duct ensures great performance without the use of cheater holes. Designed to be powered by a 50mm FMS electric ducted fan (3S version) and a 3S2200mAh Lipo battery, the model has great performance and flight times from 6-8 minutes. The model is designed to be printed from regular PLA or PolyAir 1.0 or PolyLight to reduce weight.

An innovative RDS (Rotary Drive System) is included for the ailerons. The rotary movement of the servo will be translated directly to control surface movement with no visible linkages to the control surfaces. No more broken control horns or visible control rods to spoil the scale looks. Files for tradional ailerons with control horns are also included.

The Edf is easily installed without the use of screws or glue. The edf is secured by the detachable front fuselage and held in place by magnets. The F-84f is designed with an optional catapult hook for safe and consistent bungee assisted launch. The model can be hand launched but it is recommended to use a catapult or bungee with 6kg pulling force for a safe launch of the model. Optional scale Drop Tanks can be fitted for that classic Thunderstreak look. All parts are designed to be easily aligned and glued with medium cyano glue.
