Tech Notice F-86 Sabre Tx-R Brushless Micro EDF

Fly a true micro EDF jet!

There are a lot of jets and a lot of micros, but there's only one F-86 Sabre and it's only from Great Planes. It's the first micro that offers true EDF jet performance and authentic jet looks in equal measure and it's available in both RTF and Tx-R versions.

The F-86 measures only 15 from wing tip to wing tip, but offers the scale looks of a plane twice that size, as well as the performance that jet pilots want. A factory-installed brushless motor and a HyperFlow ducted fan unit provide the power and thrust for low-level, full-throttle passes and outstanding sport performance. Download a product flier

Tx-R Transmitter-Ready

Aircraft Ready for Your Transmitter


Fly any Tx-R with your radio…and AnyLink!

You don’t need to buy a new transmitter to fly a Tx-R. All you need is your favorite and the AnyLink.

The AnyLink is a little black box that works with transmitters of virtually any brand, band and modulation. And installing it is as fast and easy as attaching it to your transmitter’s trainer or DSC port. That turns your transmitter into a 2.4GHz powerhouse that’s compatible with the SLT receiver included in all Tx-R aircraft. That means you can fly one Tx-R — or as many as you want — with just one transmitter: yours!

* To see if your transmitter is compatible with the AnyLink, see the AnyLink Compatibility Chart on


Includes: assembled aircraft with all onboard gear, plus a LiPo battery and AC/DC balancing charger
Requires: AnyLink and compatible 4-channel transmitter or Tactic™ 2.4GHz radio with SLT™
