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.

Good customer service and good value for what you receive. Instructions could be better, several steps are omitted. Several screws and washers were missing from the kit.
Biggest issue is poor fit of the wing tube. Had to spend hours sanding the tube and sockets to get it to work.

Being used to building larger jets, it took some time to figure out the component locations in a smaller space. I did not want to give up the PowerBox and other redundancy, etc. that I have come to rely on. Also, I installed an older P-100RX. I chose to add a removable second half-deck over the PBox, fuel pump and UAT to mount the LG controller, PBox soft switch and JetCat interface on the upper deck. Only the ECU is on the side of the fuse. The PBox screen is still visible and all my wiring connections are accessible.

I think the outer pipe should NOT be welded on both ends. The inner and outer pipes expand at different rates! This causes the pipe to make "crackling" noise when heating up and cooling down. In the past, I have had outer pipes deform when the outer pipe is welded on both ends. Time will tell on this one. I made sure the pipe had some additional clearance from the former in the back. But, don't overdo it as an excessively moving pipe can cause trim issues. I also, had to clearance the Fuse at the pipe exit too. This end of the Fuse had 3 small cracks and had a bit of paint missing. Used some thin CA and some paint to fix it.

I had to sand down the larger wing tube and sand out its tube in the Fuse to get the larger wing tube to fit. I used a 1/2" wood dowel with a slit in the end for some sandpaper to get inside the Fuse's tube. Then ran it in a drill motor, etc. Had to sand out one wing' too. But, it all fits really nice. Had to do the same with my past Sprint.

The JP gear dropped right in w/o any modification. However, I did reglue the LG mounting area. From what I have seen with another Ranger from which the gear ripped out on a landing in the rough grass, I think the manufacturer could do a lot better gluing there. Maybe even add some more wood. Also, the gear mounts are rather soft wood. Make sure you use the blind nuts on the Mains. Time will tell if the Nose Gear's tip screws work. That wood is rather soft too! I used some thin CA on the Nose Gear mount's threads. Make sure you use some glue on the Main Gear's blind nuts. With the Main Gear's counter-sunk screws, if a blind nut backs out of the soft wood, you are in for a tough grinding job to get the Gear's screw out! You may NOT want to use Loctite on the Main Gear's mounting screws.

With the older P-100RX's weight, the plane balanced on the Xicoy balancer with three Spektrum 2000 Mah 2S receiver batteries above the nose gear. There was no need to put a battery aft of the fuel tank. This could allow the tank to moved back a bit, but some modification to the canopy formers may be necessary if the tank is moved. Time will tell if the third Rxer battery on the turbine will hold up to the turbine's startup current demand. Also, with the fuel tank this far forward of the CG, the plane's balance will change significantly as fuel is used. Although, we did not notice a significant change during a local pilot's maiden and subsequent flights. Another local pilot's plane is set at the recommended 160mm CG and flies great.

Overall, I think the purchase was worth the cost. It is a very nice, looking plane. I know they fly well because I helped a local pilot trim out his. His Ranger flies very well with a K-85. I am looking forward to a nice day to maiden mine. Nice days are few and far between up here this time of the year. So, this review is limited to my building experience and helping another pilot do a maiden and several subsequent flights.

Minor shipping damage to one former due to the pipe not being secured inside the fuse. Fuel tank is way too large for this plane.

Overall a good value.

One of the best out there!

I built one of these for a customer. Loved it so much that I needed one in my fleet! Thanks boomerang for making such an awesome aircraft!

Ranger review

No recommended UAT tank or spot to mount 1. Looks like the monokoted parts has been painted with clear paint. That looks good but will be harder to repair. Calls for 9 channel. That will work if you use 2 y extensions. I hear that the throws are twice what you will need to fly. My wing tube did not fit. It is .007 to big. Dealer sent me a new 1 in 1 day. The manual is online. Wished I had printed it out before starting the kit. Had it flyable in less than 1 week. Hope this flys as good as my Elan.

Overall fair to good quality, HOWEVER wing tips pieces did not match color scheme, it takes some study to match screws and whatnot to proper use, and it was initially hard to find the assembly manual. Phone conversations were very helpful.
