Boomerang Ranger Sport Jet – Ultra Fast, Ultra Fun. 

 Enter the realm of fast, fun jet turbine flight with the all-new Boomerang Ranger Sport Jet. Designed to encompass an ultra-wide speed envelope, the Ranger Sport Jet provides slow, controlled landing approaches with blistering high-speed capability. 

Designed specifically with forgiving flight characteristics, the Ranger is perfect for a 1st time jet pilot, allowing ease of flight in gusty, sub optimal winds. Utilizing inboard flaps for slow, stable approaches, the Ranger can be flown with incredible confidence, taking to the skies with aggressive power and incredible speed. 

Adding excellent value to this potent mix of speed and fun, Boomerang RC includes a complete set of electronic retracts for true aerodynamic perfection. Further this with electronic braking capability, landings are even easier, allowing for shorter distances on touchdown with active electronic braking. 

Agile, aerobatic and a blast to fly, the Ranger Sport Jet utilizes high strength fiberglass construction of the fuselage, and ultra-durable OraCovered wood construction of the wings and tails. Offering ease of maintenance for the average modeler, wood construction helps future proof the Ranger when those less than perfect landings occur. 

With an 80 sized turbine, the Ranger offers performance to spare, with grass field takeoffs at the ready. Step up to a 100 sized turbine, and the speed and performance of this jet really begins to shine. Drop in a 120 sized turbine, and the Ranger is ready and waiting to scorch the skies above with insane levels of jet turbine performance. 

Utilizing an included composite fuel tank, thrust tube, and all hardware and linkages needed to get you in the air, the Ranger is packed with value and ready to move. And with an engine bay designed to accommodate both older style, large turbine cans & modern, smaller sized turbine cans, the Ranger is massively flexible when it comes to the power plant of choice. 

Offered in a variety of beautiful, high visibility liveries, the Ranger stands out in the skies above, and includes a set of standard wing tips for those in search of a more traditional jet look. Easy to assemble at the field with only (2) high strength wing screws, the twin carbon fiber wing tubes shrug off high G loadings, allowing the Ranger to be pushed hard & fast with every flight. 

Supplied with a 125 ounce fuel tank, the Ranger performs incredibly well when fully fueled, and can fly for durations of 7 to 10 minutes, depending upon the turbine of choice and overall throttle management. Weighing in at 25 lbs. wet, the Ranger excels in all forms of flight, with heart pounding performance you can both see and feel.

Boomerang Ranger

Overall good quality however there are some issues. As another reviewer mentioned the main spar channel in the fuse was full of overspray, it took 2 hours of sanding to clean out. There is a bad run in the paint on the fuse due to paint being applied to thick and other areas where the paint was applied very thin. The manual is terrible! At least the build video by "the lighter side" was helpful. I have flown a friends Ranger and I know it flies well so looking forward to this as a nice everyday flier

Super high-quality, especially for the price.

I was considering an Hanger Nine 339 but for a few dollars more I opted for the Ranger. I am so glad I did. The fiberglass and balsa construction is excellent in every way. The balsa wing and tail feathers are clear coated so unless you look close it appears to be a complete fiberglass kit. I have installed a K-1 02 G5 engine in mine. I removed the 3-D printed cockpit interior and coated the interior of the canopy with translucent black paint. This was to eliminate as much weight on the front as possible. The batteries are installed in the very front above the front gear to get a correct balance. Total weight with fuel in the 125 mL UAT is 21 pounds. The only issue I had during construction is installation of the main wing tube. The fit was extremely tight and I had to ream the fuselage tube using a sanding sponge attached to an electric drill and rod. I’ve had to do this on other aircraft in the past so was not unusual. I haven’t maidened the Ranger as yet. Still learning Jets with my BAE Hawk. I will update the review after the maiden.

Good Folks to Deal With

I love my Ranger but the best part was the customer service. I had some blemishes on my rear fuse. The folks at Boomerang made everything right as soon as I notified them. Don't be afraid to order from these folks! They will look after you.

Pretty good

Looks nice, but has quality issues. Some of the formers are glued in crooked/twisted, shouldn't cause an issue. The wing tube socket is full of heavy paint overspray, cleaned that out and the wing tube does not fit regardless, a tube from another plane fits fine, so had to order another tube. Some of the hardware is missing. There is good build videos on youtube and the facebook group. Hopefully will be a good flyer once I get the bugs out.

Ranger!!

First off, customer service is excellent. Greg Alderman is awesome to deal with! Due to pilot error, I piled in my first Ranger. Greg helped me put a replacement package together, and it was here in 3 days. - just awesome service! The Ranger itself is a very nice flying jet, and got lots of admiring comments on the flight line. The assembly is pretty straightforward. The only improvement I would like to see is the ability to install and remove the wings without having to drop the gear first

Just received my Boomerang Ranger Turbine Jet. Shipping was quick and packaging was excellent. The finish is great overall with very minor blemishes they are hard to see. I wanted to dry fit wings,rudder ect and they all seem to fit great. The gear and all provided hardware is good quality. I am waiting on a couple more items and will be putting this great looking Jet together. Greg is awesome to deal with!
