AVIATION DESIGN KIT DESIGNED BY ÉRIC RANTET & JEFF LALLEMAND
You love them big, very big ?
You love the Fouga Magister, famous jet trainer with his Vtail butterfly and his straight wings ?
You like heavy plane with lot of inertia ?
So the 1/3 Fouga Magister is for you.
Built from the original "Castel Mauboussin factory" plans from 1955, with the help of Jeff Lallemand, it is an exact copy of our smaller 1/4 Fouga.
The Fouga Magister is fully molded in composite, carbon / epoxy and pre-assembled : model is painted in mold, all bulkheads are glued. All the panel lines and rivets (about 15 000) are engraved in the fuselage and wings.
The wings are molded with carbon reinforcement. The aluminum wing spar, the alignment pins are factory installed.
The 2 stabs (called butterfly stabs) are also molded with carbon reinforcement.
The 2 canopy hatches are molded in epoxy and the canopy fitting is easy.
The flight characteristics are excellent and similar to the small one. It is easy to fly model, with an excellent stability.
All aerobatics maneuvers can be done, the loops are enormous, and rolls can be done fast or slow. Inverted flight is not a problem.
For landing, the air brakes are powerful, so landing precision is excellent.
The Fouga Magister will operate from prepared grass fields or tarmac surfaces.
FOR TRANSPORTATION, FOUGA MAGISTER IS DESIGNED IN SEVERAL PARTS FOR AN EASY ASSEMBLY AND AN EASY UTILIZATION AND MAINTENANCE :
Fuselage is in 3 parts: front fuselage with pilots, central section with gear and turbines, rear fuselage with tailpipes;
The model has plug in wings and stabs;
The big hatches give a good access to the radio, batteries, engine equipment, fuel tank, pump and to the bifurcated tailpipe.
Our landing gear has been designed for stronger field operation.
