Often referred to as the Hun, a shortened version of “one hundred”, the F-100 Super Sabre served with the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1954 to 1971 and with the Air National Guard (ANG) until 1979. It was the first USAF fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight.
The Elite Aerosports / CARF-Models F-100 Super Sabre scale jet has a long history and an interesting story to tell, but ultimately the cooperation between CARF and Elite Aerosports signs responsible for its absolutely outstanding scale fidelity and performance.
It is an “industry first” in many ways, but mainly we have taken the decision to offer this aircraft as a model over 25 kg. Not an issue in many countries outside Europe, it poses a little challenge for our European customers to certify this model aircraft in the class between 25 and 150 kg take off weight. CARF Models, however, provides all necessary type rating data and documentation so that a registration and certification will be a piece of cake – an industry first, indeed.
That little challenge is nothing compared to the benefits of building a “real” aircraft, which acts and behaves just like the full scale Super Sabre would. It’s not a paper airplane. It’s not a kite. No compromises, no limitations. This results in flying characteristics unheard of. High Alpha approaches and touch downs due to the appropriate wing loading and the scale airfoils show the model’s unbelievable scale character, and the landing gear is designed to cope with these scale landings as well. Priceless when the drogue chute deploys and brings the fighter to a standstill in a shorter distance than you’d imagine.
