Dynam Turbo Jet White Twin 64mm EDF Jet - PNP
Dynam 550 Turbo Jet White Twin 64mm EDF Jet 1180mm (46") Wingspan with Electronic Retracts and Flaps - PNP - DY8937PNP-WHITE
The Dynam Turbojet is modeled after the famous Citation II Model 550, which was a direct development from the Citation I. The earlier aircraft's success in the market led the manufacturer to believe there was demand for a larger aircraft that utilized the same design philosophy. The result was the Citation II, which had a maximum seating capacity of 10. In addition to more seats, the plane had more powerful JT15D-4 engines (2,500 lbf (11 kN) thrust per engine), increase of fuel capacity to approximately 5000 lbs, faster speeds and longer range. Dynam's 550 Turbo Jet Twin 64mm EDF PNP is virtually ready to fly! All you need is a 4 channel radio, 4 channel receiver and 3S 11.1V 2200 mAh Li-Po battery and you're ready to fly this scale business jet! This upgraded version includes electronic retractable landing gear and pre-installed flaps and pre-installed flap servos.

- April 13, 2017 - Some versions (RTF) may not come with flaps so if you would like to add flaps you will need the Dynam 9 gram positive servo for the left flap and the Dynam 9 gram reverse servo for the right flap.

Love this airplane.
This airplane is a jewel, rock solid stability and outstanding looks. Always a hit at my flying field.
The canopy fit is off slightly, modifications needed to get the fit flush and solid attachment. Seems to be a good value. I have not flown the plane yet.
Requires many mods to survive flying
Major mishaps in my club with this jet : 1-wings broke in half on steep dive ( reason no joining CF bar on wings ) ; fix: put a joining CF bar at least spanning 3/4 wing length on each side 2- wings broke are Retracts due to lack of shock absorber or retracts snapping out on landing or retracts jamming ( solution change retracts with shock absorbing struts) 3- two turbojets got their ESC smoked or burst ( one plane crashed while burning ) both running on 4S batteries -no mods .reason: ****** ESCs . Solution : Change ESC to decent ESCs at least 50Amp for 4S . otherwise : flies fantastic , lands fantastic, lots of power , if everything working great ,everyone will probably love it .
Nice model, - fly's well!
Nice model, - fly's well! The wing should have a spare to connect the two halves! My biggest issue was that the glue did not adhere to this foam, - I tried several glues and methods, finally by sanding and etching I was able to get a working bond. Motion RC is doing a terrific job in selling, supporting, shipping. I strongly recommend this company.
Excellent jet for the money!
I have assembled mine and have 4 great flights on it so far...last two were today in 10 mph winds no problem. I love how this plane flies and it is a very stable plane!!! Only thing keeping this from being a 5 star plane is the reports of spotty retract performance, my issue with EDF fan rubbing the shroud, and inherent weak wing which has reports of snapping in a high G bank. Though if this plane was flown in a scale manner, the wing would probably always be OK...but I reinforced mine to be sure with a 1/8" wood dowel. ..... as with any foam plane there are always some issues to look at as minor as they are. ..... below are some issues and solutions. 1) cut a groove in underside of length of wing and reinforced with a 1/8" wood dowel 2) So far, MY Retracts work fine...I have heard of them being fussy on cold weather due to the grease getting too thick. I have heard of solutions of the grease being replaced with WD-40, but have not tried it myself. 3) Have not experienced and tip stall tendency. The again, I added 42g of weight in the nose to make it more of a stable flier. It's just slightly nose heavy and I like it. 4) Cut small vent holes in the windscreen and made two exit holes by cutting out an extra passenger "window" on each side near the EDF's where they will **** the air thru the fuse. 5) Flaps need no elevator mix...any elevator mix in either direction will make the plane balloon or dive. Mixing a little down flap with gear-down is a nice convenience though. 6) CHECK YOUR EDF FANS! Most inexpensive EDF fans will rub against the shroud in some spots in some cases and will result in the fan grenading in mid flight. I had one side rubbing, but could not find any way to adjust the centering. So I just removed the blade and dremeled out a groove in the shroud until the blade spun freely. This testing should only be done slowly by hand with no battery installed! 7) I get 3 minute flight times from a 3s 2200 Admiral battery. I have heard of longer flight time, but that's what I get on mixed throttle. Anybody with any EDF experience will like this plane a lot. For the money it's a steal!
Dynam Turbojet White
This is a must have scale civilian aircraft. Flies smooth as butter and lands really nice. Flaps are recommended to slow down, although it's fine without them. All around stunning plane. Thanks Motion RC!
Dynam (Citation) Turbo Jet - white
Today is Sept. 19, 2016. So far since receiving my white Dynam (Citation) Turbo Jet I have only been able to fly it twice. (I am a 30+ year RC builder and flyer). Right out of the box I noticed some aerodynamic things that made me think about the flight characteristics of this plane. And I was right. Scale-wise, I realized that the chord of the wing as well as the overall length of the wing would require it to be flown probably at a high throttle setting, keeping the speed up. I was right. The wing is too short and the chord is too narrow. But, from first look right outta the box, it "appears" to be scaled correctly. It is not. 1. Control horns - all of them broke almost immediately when attaching/adjusting the clevises. REALLY cheap plastic. REPLACE ALL OF THEM (control horns) before first flight. 2. If able, set your control throws at 50%, 75% and 100%. See what works best for you. The plane balanced upside down spot on, on a Great Planes balancer with a 3-cell LiPo in it up front. 3. Second flight, the left main gear failed to retract. Cycled the gear, and it retracted. And extended thank goodness. 4. Ailerons, rudder, and elevators - there are no hinges. The "hinges" are pressed foam and almost immediately started to tear in a few places. Clear tape solved those issues. 5. Reading reviews at MotionRC, I followed the advice and added carbon fiber rods to the wings and horizontal tail surfaces for stiffness. Cut very small channels on the bottom sides, then epoxy in place. Then cover with 3/4" white tape. Easy to do and did not take very long. 6. Flying - my first two flights were without flaps and flap servos. First flight required a whole bunch of nose up trim even AFTER balancing! Second flight, at the flair, the plane snap rolled about three feet above the gravel runway and landed upside down. Today I ordered a new canopy, and a spare. Also, had to epoxy the ***** in the rear fuse. I always, always use 30 minute epoxy on foam, only. That white "foamy" glue has never held up well in my opinion. 7. (Other reviews at MotionRC also basically say the same things as what I've written here). Do I like it so far even with all I've done to it? You bet. It is waaaay cool looking, I've had many compliments, and plan on flying it a LOT more. One reviewer mentioned getting bigger motors and ESCs for it. And also adding flaps. I'm going to hold of on the bigger motors, but I have ordered the servos to enable the flaps which are already there. Just need to "cut" them out and make the attachments.
Love this plane
Plane flys great and easy to handle. If you get this plane, definitely put in the flaps, as they "hang" like the real planes on special plastic hinges when they are in landing position - it looks very realistic. Since the plane comes with decals, it easily allowed me to paint mine like United express Jetstream 41. When they restock the white version, I think I'll get another one and paint it like some other airline regional jet. My club members could not believe it flies on just 3s. I can cruise this thing in half throttle. The only thing I could not do was grass take off.
