At £25,000 (i.e. $35,000) this is probably the most expensive single engine RC turbine jet I have ever filmed in 10 years of uploading to YouTube. So many things contribute to the cost of a large project such as this CARF Models F-100.

The kit (i.e. fuselage and wings), landing gear, brakes, engine e.g. Kingtech 260 and Interairco UAT\bubble trap and fuel system, electronics e.g. 13 35KG JR servos, Powerbox Royal and Jetronics air valves, light system.
