AVIATION DESIGN KIT DESIGNED BY ÉRIC RANTET
If you love the futuristic design…
Then this jet is for you.
Diamond is the new generation of futuristic sport jet from Aviation Design. Just created from Éric RANTET’s imagination, it is a combination of Star Wars, Flash Gordon, the 1950’s first jets from French Leduc and Russian jet and the Gee Bee racers.
With a futuristic/old design, Diamond features stunning shapes and flies like a space ship.
Designed for high speed, the Diamond can also fly very slow due to his studied aerodynamics and large landing flaps.
Diamond has been entirely CAD designed with Catia software and all tooling are CNC machined on our large 5 axis milling center.
Diamond is of course fully composite and molded in our new CZ factory. It is delivered in ARF version, pre-built and painted in the Mold with art work fitted.
The landing gear is made by Behotec and uses trailing link legs for the best performance on any kind of runway.
Diamond is designed for 16 to 22 kg thrust turbine. A light turbine is required to easily obtain the center of gravity due to the rear engine position. The radio batteries and turbine battery are located in the nose.
The fuselage length is just 2.00 m and the nose is removable for batteries access.
A sidewall engine hatch allows engine operation, the tailpipe is factory installed.
The main gears are screwed in the wings and the wing tip tanks are removable.
The fin and the 2 stabs are also removable for transportation.
