We have just finished unpacking and dry assembled the Warrior, so far it all looks very impressive, even Symon likes it! The finish is superb and the build looks as good as some of the high end kits on the market.
There is virtually no building involved apart from fitting gear, turbine, tank and cutting slots for servo horns, the canopy is pre-glued to the frame and the nose retract door and mechanism is all done for you. All surfaces have live hinges and there are fitted aluminium clamps for retaining the wings, tailplane halves and fin. Joining the fuselage halves is as simple as removing two screws from the gear tray, slide it out of the way and then screw the six bolts through both sections!
Most sport jets don't bother with any form of cockpit, the Warrior comes complete with a full cockpit and chair, I couldn't resist fitting one of our highly detailed figures for the photo shoot! :)
Symon has just finished the vector files for the graphics, we should have them cut out and applied for further photos next week.

Should start the build on this just after Jetpower, Kingtech 120 is the planned power plant.

The tube and Kevlar fuel tanks come with the kit.

Very, very well received at the 2016 Jetpower exhibition, the new YT Warrior suitable for 120 to 140 turbines.

The first shipment due around the end of October was sold out, the factory has now asked to increase the quantities so there will be a few spare, unfortunately this has meant the shipment has been now been delayed to the end of November, giving the factory a chance to build some for us.

Will the graphics come in the box so you can add them yourselves?..

I'm being swayed now as the G4 looks like its not arriving in this shipment :evil:

Have you a pic of the retracts Martin?

Will ping you about the Turbine! Lets go for it... :shock:

Been looking at alternative schemes... being the scale man I am...

What do you think about an aggressor color scheme...

I have not seen the new retracts, Jean JMB in Luxembourg has them but not with the new electronic brakes.

The shipment should be leaving in the next couple of days so that puts it 4 weeks away, just about gives me enough time to get the Robin 2160 finished.
