    Hey guys, who doesn't love a good flying EDF jet? Especially a "pull it out of the box and go fly" BNF from Horizon?!?! I'll take two please! This week Horizon released E-flite's new FJ-2 Fury a 36" wingspan EDF jet with an awesome scale appearance and some pretty amazing flight performance.

    Here's a look at this brand new plane!

    With it's bright scale markings, I'm sure even at full throttle this jet will be easy to see! Let's check out the overview and specs:

    Known as one of the most famous fighters to never see combat with U.S. forces, the North American FJ-2 Fury was built for the U.S. Navy and flew with the Marines in defense against the MiG-15 threat over Korea during the 1950s. It was a jet powered dog-fighter that pilots loved and it helped to pave the way for modern super-sonic air combat. Borrowing from the success of the very similar F-86H Sabre, the Fury filled a distinctive role in a time when speed was king.

    The E-flite® FJ-2 Fury airplane recreates the famous Navy jet fighter so you can enjoy thrilling jet flight at your local flying field. From the accuracy of the model outline to the efficient EDF system, this FJ-2 delivers stunning scale appearance and rock-solid performance. But the best feature of this Fury is an innovation that full-scale pilots back in the day could only dream about. Built into the included Spektrum™ AR636A receiver is an AS3X® system that’s been specially tuned for this airplane.

    The advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ AR636A 6-channel receiver works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis sensing with exclusively tuned flight control software. As a result, your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced so you’ll feel as if you are at the controls of an expertly tuned jet that’s much larger.

    Whether you’re an intermediate pilot looking for a performance upgrade or a scale pilot looking for grab-and-go EDF convenience, the E-flite FJ-2 Fury is ideal. All you need to start flying today is the 3200mAh 4S 14.8V Li-Po flight battery a suitable charger and your favorite full-range 4+ channel aircraft transmitter with Spektrum DSM2®/DSMX® technology.
