Bandit Mk II from BVM Jets


The Bandit design has been around for many years and has won the loyalty of hundreds of customers because of its sleek lines and superior flight characteristics. So, we keep trying to make it better. The MARK II has a few refinements that make it easier to assemble in your workshop and at the flying field. Of course, top access to the engine, radio, and fuel system are unique to your Bandit.

The airframe components are composite structures that are factory painted and polished. A crystal clear canopy and molded cockpit deck with instrument panel are standard. Equipment trays, linkages, servo mounting hardware and a complete color photo en- hanced instruction booklet are included.

The pneumatic system has served the Bandit family aircraft for over 10 years and thousands of flights. Now you can choose air or electric operation. Both systems include BVM's patented Jet Wheels & Brakes utilizing 3" tires on the mains and 2-5/8" on the nose. These are ample size for grassfield ops. Following the BVM flex plate design que, the Bandit ARF MKII uses strong Carbon Fiber machined plates to save your Bandit on those less-than-perfect landings. In-the-field use has shown that these plates can be broken out, replaced and back in the air within 20 minutes, and your model is spared internal structural damage.

In flight, the wing does most of the work, so we enlisted the expertise of an aero design guy to computer optimize the airfoil and wash-out. Big flaps for lift and drag, generous ailerons, strong landing gear mounts, and Carbon Fiber and Aluminum wing spars are key components of the strength and flight characteristics that make the Bandit so popular. In addition, all surfaces receive factory installed flex hinging.
