Rafale Composite Twin 70mm EDF Jet 800mm (ARF)






The Dassault Rafale is a twin engined delta fighter/multirole combat aircraft that has been designed to be capable of operating from both land and from carriers. It represents the forefront of French aviation technology and has seen action in recent conflicts around the world, including Libya & Afghanistan with both the French Air Force and Navy.

This superb Rafale features a composite fuselage, vertical stabilizer and fixed canards with a balsa constructed delta wing, the paint finish and covering is excellent, the finished model looks really quite striking in its prototype scheme. The Rafale is designed for twin 70mm EDF units (included) and is capable of blistering speeds, comprehensive hardware is supplied with the kit, this includes fixed under-carriage, although it would take little work to convert the model to accept a set of electric servoless retracts, or it would be just as happy being bungee launched.

Being designed around 70mm fans, this Rafale is a great size for transportation and its flight performance is truly outstanding, even with the canards in the fixed position, this superb jet is highly maneuverable. Two fans mean an amazing thrust/weight ratio with the right set up, delivering a realistic jet flying experience for the RC pilot!
