This high performance ducted fan airplane proves sophisticated high-tech mechanics can be easy and fun to use. KYOSHO’s many years of ducted fan airplane design experience and the latest brushless motor technology launches a new era in flight performance. The 300g of ultra-lightweight kit with beautifully fiberglass fuselage contains a built-in micro ducted fan unit that delivers awesome propulsion to fly exciting stunts such as loops and rolls. This almost fully assembled airplane requires only a few steps to complete assembly and linkage setup so you can experience the thrill of realistic jet flight. Removable canopy (with screw) allows fast battery changes and easy access to servo linkages. The illusion features a one-piece motor case and fan unit. The uniquely designed fixed stator blades and back cone produce high thrust despite the small overall size. The rear of the fuselage is designed with large, high-flow air intakes, which also contribute to the high amount of thrust generated.
Please be aware that this is an “ARF” type kit. Much of the major assembly is completed for you at the factory, but there are still some assembly steps required and addition equipment purchases that are necessary in order to complete and operate this model. The aircraft is capable of very high speeds and should be operated by experienced RC pilots.
