This superb Turboraven really looks the part and is something quite different from the usual sport models, being built for both glow or electric power, nobody gets left out!
The construction of this ARF is first class, being both strong and light, the covering is also excellent and has been expertly applied. The glassfiber cowl and wheel pants have a deep gloss paint finish and the comprehensive, quality hardware package compliments the quality of the airframe. The 2 pc plug in wing is ideal for easy transportation and field assembly and mounts onto a CF tube. Rudder is pull/pull for precision and an alloy servo extension is included.
The Turboraven is a high performance aerobatic model and regardless of EP or IC power, this is a model that the RC pilot will never tire of, capable of high speed with the right set up, combined with an excellent aerobatic ability, this is a great looking, practical every-day sport model that will really stand out at your airfield!

Go to the "International" page for this aircraft. Scroll down to the files tab. There are pictures and a manual there but they are not a lot of help but anything is better then nothing.
This is a very nice looking model! I used a 6 cell 5000mah battery, with an NTM 50-50 motor, and a 13X8 apc prop for my maiden flight. The plane is built very stout. I doubt the flying weight could ever be 3000gr. Mine came out at 3855gr. (8.5lb). I had to move everything as far forward as possible, servo from tail, to front, to attain the CG. The battery needed a special cut out to slide as far forward as the cowl would allow, just behind the air scoop, and the addition of a heavy spinner, got me to there. The power setup will handle about 2kw, but am only drawing just over 1kw, with this prop, and just short of 1:1 thrust, at 5000 ft. altitude. Maiden flight proved to be uneventful, (that's a good thing). The plane tracks very well. Flew about 9 minutes and brought it in. Slowed down nicely, and settled in for an easy landing :). Used about 2000mah from battery.
