"NEXT" is one of the best aerobatic wooden jet model on the market!!!

Unique model looks, especially suction openings, were first drawn in 3D program.
Every ply part of the model frame construction is laser cut. 
Parts fit perfectly and modeler need minimum time to assemble "NEXT" wooden kit.
Also, the program calculates all structural loads and there is no fear that the model could break up in the air.

The frame construction is from a 3 mm poplar ply, and for sheeting we used 3 mm balsa.
Nose is 3D printed.

For "NEXT" there is no need for paper plans, the pieces fit like a Puzzle and you can not turn around or otherwise set up parts as they can.

Before bonding the parts (for example, the wing), assemble first whole part without glue.
This is important to see in which order parts are placed.
You must put aluminum tube in construction during wing & fuselage building!!!

For gluing use white (carpenter) glue!!!
5 minute epoxy you need only when glue G10 hinges and horns in the position & 3D printed "nose" on front of the fuselage.

The complete model is coated with 18 gr glass fabric & epoxy resin.

With wooden kit we send PDF files of model parts, for easier assembling.
Also, guide are many photos made during building first "NEXT" jet model.

Maiden flight:


It is important to note that the complete model is designed in a 3D program, structural strength is designed for far greater force than the load in flight.
NEXT is extremely strong, while the weight remained relatively small for this size acrobatic plane.

For the first flight, the turbine's thrust was about 8 kg, and then, for testing purposes, thrust is increased to 10 kg was increased.
The differences were almost absent, except that the maximum speed increased from 215 to 229 km/h.
The idea for this model is to use a smaller turbine with less fuel.





After more than 150 flights in 2019...






For easy building, we designed special templates for making wings and horizontal stabilizer.
With them each part is placed in a precisely defined place and the workmanship is fast and very precise.











Model is easy for transport, wing is from two pieces (wing joiner is 30 mm aluminum tube / 2 mm wall) and elevator is removable also.
Huge canopy allows easy installation of equipment.


Canopy with inlets is the most unusual part and gives the model a unique shape...


Bottom fuselage side is extremely attractive with smooth transitions from one form to another.


Few more details...











On 3D drawings was used Electron E40 landing gears with "legs" and wheels from the same company.

Position on bottom fuselage side for front landing gear opening.



















Drawing for CG. CG is little behind of the aluminum wing joiner.























3D printed "nose".





































Grumania jets from Germany made Jet pipe for "NEXT"
