Art-Tech say their new Alpha Jet is capable of speeds up to 90mph thanks to a pre-fitted 64mm fan unit and brushless outrunner motor. The model is pretty much 'ready to run with fitted micro servos driving ailerons and elevator so requiring a receiver and 3S 2200mAh Li-Po battery.

The compact 29" (728mm) span (35" long) model is nicely moulded from tough EPO foam and painted in the French national aerobatic team colours. Battery access is through the removable main canopy.

The model is available from good model shops ot direct from Century UK with or without a 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver with an RRP of £149.99 and £109.99 respectively. Look out for the RCM&E review very soon.
