Out of stock



With the increased interest and development of Electric Ducted Fans (EDF), FMS is proud to announce their 1060 mm(41.7 in) wingspan 80mm EDF version of the famous Futura. Futura is a mutual-developed airplane made by FMS team from China and ThomaHawk Team from Germany. The original design and authorization is from ThomaHawk, with the additional FMS top-quality concept, it is finally being a promised finest work. This EPO foam version of this quick flying aerobatic jet is another example of the FMS quality. Equipped with the new and improved 80mm fan unit, the Futura is capable of producing 3400 grams of force (7.5 LBF) of thrust. Coupled that with CNC-processed shock-absorbed metal landing gear set, optional vibrant color schemes (bright purple & golden, red & black), digital metal gear servo throughout, the coming Futura is absolute a must have for the pilot that “Feels the need for Speed”.

Key features:

2.80mm 12 Blade Fan unit
3.High-quality Predator 100A ESC
4.EPO40 foam material
5.Digital metal gear servos throughout for better controlling capabilities
6.New CNC-processed shock-absorbed metal landing gear set (Worm Dia. 10mm) helps to withstand those less-than-perfect landings

THis is a perfect jet for a a beginner jet (beginner jet pilot not beginner pilot). Straight out of the box it goes together quickly. When doing the maiden it was 3/4 throttle and about 30 feet and this bird was in the air. Very little trim was needed to make it fly level and straight. The cg was spot on from the instruction too. When landing it, make sure you come in with speed. If you put your flaps down and not going fast enough, the plane will stall and drop like a rock. The past several flights the flaps weren't even used. However, if you are a flap type of person, you can have a lot of fun between using flaps and practicing with throttle. When done correctly, the plane will slow up enough to where you can almost walk along beside it.
I've flown many EDFs and the Futura ranks at the top for a number of reasons, most importantly performance. It has plenty of power for verticals and flies rock solid. Very easy to land as it slows nicely. The suspension is the best by far I've ever had. The springs are soft enough so they actually absorb energy unlike most every other model on which the springs are too stiff and can cause bouncing. I fly primarily with HRB 6000 packs and get 4.5 min flights with the batteries cool and at storage charge when I land. This is a model I'll always have in my fleet and when I crash it someday, I'll get another.
