Default Restored Kyosho Learjet twin EDF jet

My buddy James brought an old Kyosho Learjet off eBay 3 years ago...and over last few months gradually put some time into restoring it. This is an old ARF from Kyosho and originally had brushed motors in the fans and fixed landing gear. James replaced with nice 64mm EDF system with brushless motors and retractable landing gear. Question remaining was would it fly off our relatively small bumpy landing strip?

It sure did. Very nice flyer for a converted plane. Hated to see the landing gear pull out.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

That is a very nice plane. Hope he has it repaired by now.

After the less than successful maiden where an overshoot on landing ripped out the landing gear, James split the ailerons for flaps and put in beech bearers to support the mains. Time for a second attempt.

Superb ! I don’t know how much better he could in the landing given the very short strip. I suppose he could join the Navy and learn carrier landings with an arresting hook . Lol !

With those conditions, I’d be more unclined to belly land with the gear up.

Nice film work
