BVM Jets at Tangerine Field March 8, 2010

My back had been killing me all weekend and I had been laying around too long trying to tame the pain so I drove up to the flying field for a couple of hours. It just so happened that Bob Violett from BVM Jets and his entourage were at the field with some of their jets.

Florida Jets had just ended the day before. With Bob was a guy from Venezuela that flies some of Bob's models including an F-100 Super Sabre. He told me he keeps them at the BVM headquarters when he is back home in Venezuela. Bob had an F-100D Super Sabre, an F-16, a bandit and an electric jet at the field. I think the F-100 is one of the most beautiful jets being modeled today. Bob flew his a few times. Dustin, Bob's chief flight engineer, flew their F-16. I was amazed at how slowly the F-16 would fly compared to how fast it would fly. I would love to have a scale jet but I just can't justify the cost. I am glad some people can because I sure like watching them fly! I hope you enjoy the photos. Click on the photos to see the larger versions.

Flying RC Jets is not an easy task. Since rc jets are very fast, novice flyers should not get into this sport without first acquiring some experience flying propeller driven RC planes or using an instructor. Ducted air fans consist of a fan inside of a tube. The fan can be powered by either an electric motor or a glow engine. RC electric ducted fan jets are referred to as EDF RC Jets.
