New AreS XL 3D jet kit is a result of development company KRILL Aircraft and Seba Silvestri with main goal to offer big 3D sport jet kit with ultimate flying characteristic for precise aerobatics and 3D aerobatics at the same time. Size is set not to exceed European weight limit 25 kg – it means plane ready to fly with fuel + smoke.
To achieve this, we designed shape and extremely light frame (empty less than 9000 grams) with huge ailerons and flaps on central hinges, where flaps are possible to operate not only as a flaps (flaps move in positive deflection), but by mixing with ailerons as an additional surface for ailerons. Fuselage has a slim, flat and tall shape for great stability during knife edge flight. Elevators and rudder use central hinges as well. Frame is very light but strong enough for extreme maneuvers at medium speeds.
For easier transportation you can dismantle fuselage into two pieces, dividing line is behind wings line and turbine. Wings, elevators and fin with rudder are removable as well.
Kit is designed to be powered by jet turbines with thrust from 18 kg, for 3D flying with vectored jet pipe is recommended with more than 30 kg thrust.Plane is set up for Electron retracts, special set is offered. Front gear door is operated by linear actuator controlled from retract controller or directly from receiver, hinges of front doors are installed. Specially designed Kevlar tanks for kerosene and smoke are available, with tanks holder installed inside fuselage, attaching is very easy with 4 screws, no additional work is needed. Specially for this kit designed jet pipes are offered in 3 sizes and one with vectoring.
Kit should be equipped with 1 or 2 servos for each aileron, 1 servo for each flap, 1 servo for rudder and 1 servo for each elevator. All servos must be at least 25 kg. All control surfaces are pre drilled with holes for Gabriel horns, that comes with the kit as a standard.
