Alan Hoes of Houston, TX flying at Johnson Space Center. What a great shot by photographer James Lemon, NASA Engineer.

Bennie van de Goor is the happy owner of this HUSTLER built by Andrew Kayes.

Rod Snyder, Johnson City TN, and his new Hustler.

Rod says: "...... the best kit production model jet ever. The Hustler goes together more like a full size precision aircraft than a model. The quality of the fit of the parts and hardware was flawless."

Rolf Oines, Norway, melts some ice with his new JMP HUSTLER. What a striking finish.

Thanks Lars for the great photos.

HUSTLER

Auxiliary Fuel / Smoke Tank

 

This custom fiberglass tank will deliver either turbine engine fuel or smoke fuel. A JMP Accumulator is embedded into the tank to save valuable fuselage space and deliver a bubble free fuel supply to the engine or smoke pump. The center baffle controls rapid fuel weight shift. A machined aluminum truss provides for easy mounting in the Hustler airframe or other similar model designs. This JMP fuel tank comes fully assembled and leak tested for the perfect fuel delivery system.

The Hustler was a real pleasure to build. I was impressed with the quality and fit of all components. Some of the features I liked were the pre-drilled hinge points on all surfaces, all formers factory installed along with air cylinder mounting provisions.

           

 The kit is very well engineered with generous carbon fiber thru out where needed. There is nothing flimsy about the airframe with landing gear to match and the carbon ECU board also makes a professional looking installation easy. To finish it off the pre-primed parts with perfect surface greatly helped in achieving a quality paint job.

Thank you Tom for a great product!

THE HUSTLER

 

The main design objectives of the Hustler are simplicity, reliability and slow speed stability. Fewer parts, exposed engine, increased wing area, lower stall speed airfoils, and more pre-fabrication are just a few of the differences.  Flying fast is now fairly easy, so emphasis on slow speed and great landing performance makes sense.  Development of more efficient drag devices and flap arrangement make all the difference in aerodynamic stability.  In addition, I am incorporating a new robust landing gear system, the MK-30, which will be more stable on the ground and more forgiving on those hard landings.  This opens up possibilities for grass fields and short paved club flying fields. 

The inner wings and main fuselage are molded in a single piece.  All bulkheads, formers and gear mounts are installed before we seam the fuselage halves.  This is one example of how pre-fabrication will enable alignment and gear positions to be consistently perfect.  The inboard flaps, ailerons, outboard flaps and elevator are molded and drilled for the hinges.  The hinge gaps are covered by carbon strips glued into recesses in the inner wing.  This keeps the hinge gap sealed and aerodynamic.  I used this idea first on the Firebird and found it very easy and accurate. 

We have also received inquiries for the Hustler to be used for applications to carry rather heavy electronic payloads.  Proof to you that the wing loadings are lighter, more stable and have the capacity for high lift in the hobby environment. 

The top hatch mold features a receiving groove for the canopy.  Canopy glue joints are difficult at best and are damaged when squeezed inward.  This groove prevents this from happening.  We also molded in an instrument panel and lowered deck to properly set the pilot height.  Custom molded pilot, seat back and instrument panel gauges are also available as an option. 

The stabilizer mold is CNC machined.  Perfect accuracy in straightness and shape is what we pay for with this type of mold.  Building of the stabilizer and elevator should not take more than 4 hours.

New 4" tire for the Hustler and Firebird.  These tires feature a two-shot injection molding process where a hard inner bead is first formed and a second shot of a softer rubber compound completes the tire profile.  The aluminum wheel has an inner and outer side that bolts together to simplify tire changing.  This design needs no screws through the tire to keep it on the rim.  Just unbolt the wheel halves and insert the replacement tire when needed.
