Jets are not difficult to fly, they are simply different, and you need to be taught the difference. Takeoffs and landings are especially unique.
In my entire flying career I have never traveled down the runway holding half to three-fourths up-elevator until rotation, and landing approaches at one-third to half throttle all the way to the flair. After you have touched down, you still have plenty of flying to do until the speed reduces. Jets also cover plenty of sky quickly so you will have to learn to use the throttle and understand energy management.
After a day of enlightenment, ego adjustment, and close listening, my jet instructor signed me off and said I was officially a jet pilot! These are pilots at the top of their game in skill and experience, yet they agreed that it was a necessary step to becoming a successful RC jet pilot. If you have a sliver of jet interest, you likely have heard of Bob Violett. He is a legend in the jet community. Not only is he an excellent pilot, he knows everything there is to know about jets.
I remember one specific diamond of information that Bob discussed. He spoke at great length about the importance of knowing where your switches are. Never take your eyes off of your jet or any model.
The only way to achieve this is to know transmitter mechanics blind folded. Bob suggested that modelers put their transmitters in a black bag then have a friend call out various functions while the pilot imagines flying the jet.
Have your jet in front of you and simulate a flight, retract the gear, apply speed brakes, wheel brakes, landing circuit, and so on. Repeat this process until you can subconsciously do it.
This topic is subjective and controversial, but do some basic market research. Watch out for misleading information on the forums or anywhere. Forums are helpful and entertaining, but they typically only represent a small percentage of the segment base. If someone states that he or she is an expert, run in the opposite direction. There is no such thing as a humble opinion. I suggest that you attend a jet event as an observer. Take notes on which turbines are popular, which appear to have the least number of problems, and which have the most problems.
If you attend a few events you will begin to see a pattern of who is using what and why. In nine years of flying, I have sent two turbines to the manufacturer for general maintenance.
They were repaired in a few weeks and the bill was a few hundred dollars. Most of the newer brands are well represented and appear to run well.
Many ask me what size turbine engine they should purchase. Jets are measured by their static thrust in kilograms. A is 12 kg, or slightly less than 27 pounds of thrust. If you want to try jets but are not sure if you will like them, the smaller 60 to range may be a better route.
You can always get a bigger engine later. Most kits will give you a range of turbine sizes. For most of us, a jet—no matter what its type or size—will be the most expensive aircraft we will ever own. Jet maintenance is critical. Turbine engines have zero vibration, so if you take care of them, they will last a long time. One was caused by poor battery maintenance, and the other was a loose tailpipe. I learned my lesson and want you to know the importance of maintenance.
My guideline is a 1 to 1 ratio—1 hour of flying equals 1 hour of maintenance for the first 50 flights. After this you can settle into a 2 to 1 ratio. Check your fuel system regularly—fill lines and clunk lines need to be in perfect operating condition. Jets need a lot of fuel and one air bubble can shut them down. Use a good-quality header system and frequently check it. I use the Ultimate Air Trap system, which works great.
You must use a header tank with all turbines to prevent air bubbles in the fuel system. Pressure-check your fuel tanks after every flying season.
High-pressure filling and emptying can weaken the tank seams and fittings over time. Check your landing gear because gear failures can destroy your aircraft. Test your air systems—they should be able to hold air for a long time. I shoot for no more than a 2 to 3 psi drop per hour. Check your batteries. I still, however, constantly check their capacity and discharge rate. Inspect your wheel brakes. The wheel brakes are the primary control on a RC jet and without them you could be in a lot of trouble.
I check the brakes before I take off on each flight. To be safe, have your concerns checked out by someone more experienced. I flew jets before telemetry systems were available, and had the out-of-sight, out-of-mind mentality. I always had a subconscious level of anxiety when flying these expensive aircraft. When telemetry came along, I was quick to adopt it and would never fly a jet without it.
No matter what brand of radio you choose, most have telemetry systems. Please learn how it works and use it. Know what conditions your batteries are in during the flight.
I have turbine information as well. If using a JetCat turbine and DX18 transmitter with the TM telemetry module, you can set several warnings for pump voltage, exhaust gas temperatures, and so on. I also have information for signal fades or holds being communicated back to the transmitter. All of this information is invaluable and I would question why someone would ever fly an expensive model without it. My jets have three primary warnings. The most important is low battery voltage, second is holds, and the third is turbine rpm.
This information is critical. On one occasion after downloading my flight, I noticed on my Cougar that when I lowered my flaps, my battery voltage dropped. It was still in the safe voltage range, but it was a variation of normal. I investigated the mechanics and they appeared okay.
I then put an amp meter on each of the flap servos and discovered that one of the servos was drawing excessive current in one direction. I changed out the questionable flap servo and proceeding flights showed more normal voltage. I would never have known this without telemetry. Linkages and linkage geometry are important with any aircraft, and with jets they are extremely important because of the high speeds that the aircraft fly.
This creates higher-than-normal control surface loads. Good-quality metal linkages should be used wherever possible. Most of the manufacturers supply good hardware, but the instructions often assume that you have built a jet before. Tightly lock any metal-to-metal connections, especially landing gear linkages. Remember that putting a 2-inch arm on a ounce servo only gives you ounces of torque.
The smaller the servo horn that you can get away with, the more power you will get from the servo. Brakes are necessary on a jet.
Some jets can be operated out of fairly small grass fields. In fact, my Hawk could easily get onto and off of a foot runway, but I would need to brake before getting to the end if I landed too fast or aborted a takeoff.
Most people think brakes are only for landing, but they are equally important for takeoff. I saw a model heavily damaged when a pilot was attempting to abort a takeoff. All of the popular brake systems are proportional air-operated brakes.
Both options are proportional and easy to set up. Although this may appear obvious to many, you would be surprised by how many single-point failures occur.
Although some are unavoidable, many can be avoided. I prefer two batteries with a power-safe switch. I see many switch failures, so I remove all switches from the power supply.
The soft switch-type receivers have the switch separate from the main power supply—all they do is turn the system off. I always use four of the Spektrum remotes strategically placed throughout the jet to get a good signal no matter what the orientation. This ensures that good radio feed data is being transmitted in all orientations.
Try to double up servos where possible. I try to always have two servos on the aileron and the elevator.
Do I need a waiver to operate a turbine-powered model? How can I get a turbine waiver? Go to the AMA Documents tab www. This will take you to pertinent turbine information.
Be advised that both fixed-wing and rotary-wing waivers are issued, and each has a separate application process. Contact the AMA if you want a hard copy mailed to you. Is there a fee to obtain a turbine waiver?
You merely need to submit the completed documentation. I hope this covers the basics for you. Jets are cool. They have the purest and most powerful performance you will ever experience in an RC aircraft.
The smell of jet fuel is addictive, and to have a successful flight with a RC jet is extremely rewarding. Horizon Hobby www. Skymaster skymasterjets AMA turbine safety regulations www. Aero gas turbine engines are highly complex systems involving several modules and subsystems.
