Description

Details

This scale model of the real thing has been beautifully crafted using CAD technology and, this is evident in the realistic and high quality finish seen in this plane. All parts are pre-painted to a high level of detail, the jet really does look fantastic, and as an added bonus it’s 80% built , with only a few stages of assembly to complete before you can take to the air. This is a large scale model, 980mm long and with a 648mm wingspan, it looks awesome, dominates the sky and also improves the flying experience.

This plane is incredibly stable and has just the right amount of power; only a couple of flicks of the throttle are needed to get this jet taxiing and ready for take off. The Jolly Rogers model accelerates like a rocket and takes to the air with ease, and once in the air, that’s when the fun begins! The F/A 18E can perform pretty much any aerial acrobatic manoeuvre you could possibly ask of it, but due to its stability it is a suitable choice of jet for someone wishing to learn the thrills of model jets. The plane is made from strong but lightweight foam that is more resistant to crashes and gives easier stable flight even in windy conditions. This jet can take off from the ground or can be hand launched. The F/A-18 radio controlled plane comes equipped with 2.4 GHz radio gear, allowing for many operators to fly simultaneously and as far as you can see range.

What does RTF mean? RTF stands for Ready to fly, and describes a model that is supplied with everything you need to take it it to the sky.

The F/A-18 known as the Hornet is a supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole fighter jet, designed to attack both ground and aerial targets. Introduced in the early 80s and capable of Mach 1.8 (1,190mph) at 40,000 feet, it is still in active service around the world in roles such as fighter escort, fleet air defense, suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD), air interdiction, close air support and aerial reconnaissance. The F/A-18E has been a popular choice of fighter for aircraft carrier deployment. Strike Fighter Squadron 103 (VF-103), nicknamed the Jolly Rogers is an aviation unit of the United States Navy established in 1952. They fly the Hornet emblazoned with a sinister skull and cross bones on the tail fins, this feature has been reproduced on the model as you can see in the pictures.
