The new AQUAJET X, inspired by forthcoming warbirds F22 Raptor and X35 Joint Strike Fighter, provides
the next level of flying excitement and realism between the AquaJet and
a real airplane.
To accomplish this we added an electric leaf blower to provide vectored thrust via rudder pedals while creating the jet engine sound, and employed a more sophisticated suspension. Thus, the Aquajet X can climb at 30 deg., dive at 15 deg., bank, turn and spin up to three revolutions under full control of the pilot. A throttle actuates the lift cylinder - controlling takeoff, climb and descent so the stick can control pitch and landing flare.
Other features include a retractable landing gear, a nose water cannon, a realistic instrument panel with heads-up display and a larger cockpit for kids up to 100 lb. You will wish you could fly it too! Note: A large styrofoam glider makes a great gunnery target. The lift cylinder may be mounted on an aircraft carrier type deck as shown or on the ground (requires a 6" dia. x 15" hole).
X are easy, fun and very rewarding to build!
