| When it comes to flying a model jet, little else matters
if the landing isn't successful. The Ultra Bandit, the mid
size Bandits, the Electra, Bobcat, and Kingcat sport jets share the basic "Easy-to-land"
Wing loading, airfoil, wash-out, flap size, flap
deflection angle, landing gear placement, stab moment, and lateral area balance,
must be properly integrated in the design phase. And, in the case of the
basic BVM Bandit and "Cat" designs, it's all there. The only adjustment we
make for extra windy conditions is reducing the landing flap deflection angle
10°-15° from the standard
full flap configuration. Knowing that when it's time
to land, your piloting tasks will be manageable, you can better enjoy the
aerobatic phase of your flight.
BVM's best pilots are
available at jet events and sometimes in Orlando, Fl. to help
our customers fine tune their landing technique.
