SAB AVIO K175 DRAKE JET (SAK175)
The SAB AVIO K175 DRAKE is a turbine power 1:8 scale large jet. The fuselage is fabricated using full sandwich fiberglass/airex vacuum and fully painted at the factory. It is ready to install with SAB landing gears. Control surface horns and servo mounts are already installed. Super fast assembly as major components are pre-setup at factory.
High angle thrust vectoring - Standard with vector. Vector allow a deviation of the flow until 30-degree angle. Made in INOX, with TIG welds, completely in metal. Coaxial to the gas turbine outlet pipe, it has a direct response, with no dead zone. The precision is maximum.
High performance and wide flight envelop, high speed or 3D - Delta conformation was tested and optimized for all flight conditions. Agile, stable and fast. Fun is guaranteed.
Conformal and removable fuel tank - With the simple removal of three screws, the tank can be removed quickly and easily. Every maintenance and verification is extremely simple.
