Tower Hobbies® makes it easy to experience the unique thrill of flying a radio controlled jet. Our selection of RC jet aircraft includes sport models, scale military jets, and even a few RC jets that are easy enough to be trainer airplanes for beginner RC jet pilots! Many are ready-to-fly (RTF), which makes it especially easy to experience the distinctive look, sound, and speed of jet RC aircraft.
Nearly every RC pilot looks forward to flying a fast jet model one day. Nothing else in the radio control hobby compares to the excitement you feel watching a high-speed RC jet streak across the sky while its ducted fan engine wails. Thanks to advances in RC jet model aircraft technology, that need for speed has become increasingly easy for jet enthusiasts to fulfill.
Jet model planes are available in a variety of types. Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) jets are driven by powerful brushless electric motors. Other jet models are designed to fly with fuel-powered turbine jet engines. The size of the RC jet and the power system it uses are the main factors that determine its price, performance, where it can be flown, and how much previous RC flying experience you’ll need to fly it successfully.
Most jet models in the Tower Hobbies online catalog, including those from the E-flite® and FMS brands, are EDF jets. Most have factory-built airframes that greatly reduce the time, effort, and experience required to get them ready to fly. They also provide realistic scale jet looks right out of the box. Their included Electric Ducted Fan units combine powerful brushless motors with precision-engineered fans and duct housings for massive thrust with minimal weight. These power systems also produce a turbine-like sound that adds another realistic dimension to your jet RC aircraft flights.
Until recently, because of their high speed and the control skill needed, RC jets have been almost impossible for first-time or low-time RC pilots to fly successfully. Recent advances in E-flite jet model design have changed that. Today you can learn to fly RC aircraft with an appropriate beginner RC jet model as your trainer. STS (Smart Trainer with SAFE®) jet trainers include special flight assistance technology that makes them more forgiving and easier for new pilots to control at low speeds. Most other jets are not recommended for beginners. However, Bind-N-Fly® (BNF®) sport and scale jets with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE Select offer built-in stability, precision, and flight envelope protection to make handling, takeoffs, and landings as smooth as possible. Tower Hobbies can satisfy any RC pilot’s desire to fly a jet!
Many RC jet models sold by Tower Hobbies are factory-finished with the power system and radio gear installed. Others let you draw on your own experience to equip them however you want. If your model requires power system components or other accessories, you can also find those items here at Tower Hobbies — your number one destination for the best selection of RC jets and more!
