Wheel and Brake Package -
There's no need for "jet" wheels or expensive pneumatic brakes for the R54! Package includes two 3" Sullivan
Sky-Lite main wheels, a 3" Hangar 9 Pro-Lite nose wheel, Kavan electro-magnetic brake, microswitch, 9V battery
connector, brass tubing for optional bearings, wheel collars, complete mounting hardware, and instructions.

Kavan Brake Only -
BTE Price . . . $55.95
Replacement Wheel Package -
These inexpensive sport style wheels are the same as what comes in the wheel/brake package above. If you fly from
pavement, you may need to replace the wheels after fifty or sixty landings. To BTE's way of thinking, this is a more
attractive alternative to the high-priced jet wheels used on many other turbine models.
BTE Price . . . $16.95
Fuel System Package - The R54 kit already comes with the main fuel tank, but this package provides all
the little extras to add the finishing touches to your fuel system. Includes an SWB machined-aluminum fuel tank
cap, barbs, safety wire, vent tubing, vent plug, and more. Retail Price $28.46
BTE Price . . . $21.95

specifically for the R54. Includes one 2 oz. Thin CA, two 2 oz. Medium CA, one 2 oz. Thick CA, one 2 oz. Spray
Accelerator, three micro tips, and one extra long tip. Retail Price $34.76

Full-Size Covering Templates - Want to duplicate the BTE color scheme on your R54? You'll need these
full-size templates for cutting out the individual colors. Professionally printed on six large sheets.

Corner Sander - Specifically made for rounding off the balsa corners of the
R54 fuselage. Creates a perfect 3/4" radius corner with minimal effort. A real time-saver! Comes ready-to-use with
80-grit sandpaper, so final sanding with finer grit will be required before covering.
BTE Price . . . $14.95
Cable Cutters - Specially designed jaws cut stranded cable clean and square
without fraying. Perfect for the R54 cable controls. Every modeler needs at least one
of these high-quality tools. Use the small cutter for up to 3/32" cable or 5/64" music wire. The large
cutter is good for 3/16" cable or 1/8" music wire. Made in USA.
