AF Model has leaped ahead in the industry with the 105mm L-39 Albatros, a model worthy of being the best in its class. It is professionally designed to turbine foam standard -- tough airframe structure, simple assembly, scale appearance, quality and high performance. This inspiring model will leave you looking for more after every single flight. Its massive high-performance 105mm 12-blade EDF creates an unrivaled turbine-like swoosh that echoes through the skies. It features a complete lighting package with several LEDs, like the nose taxi and navigation lights.
It is built with the latest innovative hight-density EPO foam formulated to foam turbine jet specifications , making the airframe strong, rigid, and much more durable than other EPO variants! To make transportation and storage much easier, the wings are installed and secured with a set of screws. Designed from the ground up, JP Hobby all-metal landing gears integrated electric brake system feature robust quality, reliability and scale retraction. Landings are a breeze with the latest scale-shock absorption feature. Lastly, it is propelled by a 44.4V (12S) power system togethered with a high-voltage 12S 160A ESC.
For best performance, we recommend using a 12S 44.4V 4000+mAh 40C+ lithium polymer battery setup. Two 6S 22.2V 4000+mAh 40C lithium polymer batteries in series will work exceptionally well. Matched with top-of-the-line-performance JP Hobby 105mm All Metal EDF w/ Motor, this L-39 is tearing the sky like a real fighter jet!

ARF: Almost Ready to Fly
This packaging option indicates what comes included and does not mean a completely assembled item. Most onboard electronic components are pre-assembled out of the box though some assembly is still required. This packaging option does not include the radio system, battery or charger, unless noted otherwise.
What's the difference between RTF, ARF, and KIT?
The main difference is what is included in the package. Since there are no set parameters for packaging options in this hobby, different manufacturers may vary their definitions of what is included.
KIT indicates that all the foam pieces along with the crucial components of aesthetic appearance are included in the package. Some on-board electronics may be included with a KIT such as the electric retracts and will be noted on the specifications of the model. Note that this packaging option is recommended for advanced individuals with knowledge in customizing their onboard electronic components or for those not intending to fly this model.
ARF indicates that all the foam pieces along with the crucial components of aesthetic appearance and electronic components are included with the exception of the battery, balance charger, and radio system (transmitter and receiver). Most on-board electronics are pre-installed by the manufacturer. Note that this packaging option is recommended for those who already own a radio system, battery and balance charger.
RTF includes all the foam pieces along with the crucial components of aesthetic appearance, electronic components, battery, balance charger and radio system unless noted otherwise. Most on-board electronics are pre-installed by the manufacturer. Note that this packaging option is recommended for beginners or first-time pilots. Be aware of balance charger accessories that are not included (wall adapters usually sold separately). Advanced models with the RTF option may or may not come with a battery or charger. Please read the ‘Package Includes’ area carefully under the item’s for clarification of what is included with the package.
