Acro version: Here the mechanism is behind the edf and the controller moves with it in and out to be very well cooled. This is for aerobatic flying style with many long full throttle laps as shown on the video, so it is a must, to avoid the esc to overheat and shut down.
This version can be seen in the video and its design requires a greater (or less constricted) fuselage and is therefore is more suited for aerobatic glider (Fox, Swift, Kobuz, Lunak, Foka, Pilatus B4, etc.) of approximately 1:4 scale or any suitable standard glider of about 1:3.3 scale. Our test model is a Rödel Fox 1:3.75 scale and the mechanism has still plenty of room inside the fuselage.
This retractable edf unit makes a break through into a new dimension of dynamic
soaring. Aerobatic gliders and any modern high performance glider can
perform spectacular flights. It allows fast
aerobatics as well as high-speed flights with
an absolute jet feeling (and
the sound), It also allows for long thermal
flights after a quick climb.
A 10kg (22lbs) glider reaches 250m
height in about 15 seconds.
The carbon-aluminum mechanism is about it
all. Whenever you want, you
may extend or retract the edf unit or extend,
even during heavy aerobatics, outside loop
or inverted spins. The multiple ball bearings
guided tracks are accurately positioned in
seconds by the included sequencer.
The sequencer is included with
the unit and already pre-programmed, no need to set anything.
You can choose between (1) channel operation (1 switch for extension and a motor)
or 2 channel operation (1 switch for extension and a proportional channel for throttle). It has numerous safety features that ensure that the engine only starts
when the edf is fully extended, when retracting the motor is switched off and after
short pause, the retraction of the edf unit automatically starts.
carbon edf unit is manufactured
according to the latest technology and integrated into the mechanism.
The engine noise is
barely distinguishable from turbine.
It has a very low and relatively quiet sound, and no high pitch sound, like we are used from edf jets.
to the very low position of the edf unit on the fuselage almost no pitching moment is present, the model flies very neutral, as it would be pulled
by a system in the nose.If you are looking for
the ultimate in power kick and at the same time a reasonable all-purpose unit for your glider, then
you will love the JetExtender 10
