The RC Viper Jet is modeled from a full size, build it yourself, kit airplane. The model makes a very easy flying model that is ideal for a first RC jet-but not your first RC Plane!

Scaled up from the very popular E-flite 70mm version, this scale sport RC Viper jet has a wide speed envelope with a top speed of 120MPH.
Smooth handling makes this RC jet a perfect choice for the newer jet pilot as well as the more experienced.
The image shows the 2 versions side by side and shows that this version is a BIG model!
This video is long (1 hour and 40 minutes), but it shows unboxing and building- at the flying field! and many flying sessions.
Here we have the official Horizon Hobby video that shows excellent flying shots as well as grass take offs and landings.

I have not found any mods suggested-maybe this RC Viper jet is still new. You can take a look at the RC Groups forum by clicking here. Lots of comments and some good tips but a LOT of postings!
I found this information on the RC Castle web site and it does contain a lot of details, including an installation drawing. Click here or on the image, to visit the site
The E-flite Viper 90mm EDF jet is available in two versions, from Horizon Hobby-an ARF Plus and a BNF. The ARF Plus does not contain the EDF, motor, receiver or ESC but does have all the servos and retracts.
