After the successful introduction of AeroFoam MB339, and L39 “real turbine” foam jets, we at Banana Hobby have just finished extensive tests and validation of the latest addition to our AeroFoam Jet line up: the "AeroFoam T-45".
This T-45 Goshawk is a 1/6.25 scale turbine jets designed for 60-80 size turbine. With a wingspan of over 59 inches and fuselage length over 75 inches, this is by far the largest turbine powered foam jet in the market today. With its size, the wing load is really light even after we add the scale details such as slats/flaps, airbrake, tail hook, navigation lights, full moving stab to name a few. These scale details and light wind loading make it a perfect scale trainer jet just like its full size sibling.
This scale jets can be fully decked out for serious scale competition. It comes installed and truly functional.

Speed Brakes – Operated by 2 pre-installed digital high voltage servos
Fully hinged offset flaps designed to work with slats for balanced Center of Lift and Drag, just like the full scale
