Rocket Powered RC?

Jul 01, 2011 No Comments by

Well with it being the first day of July, I started thinking about fireworks and RC! Great combination!!! Anyway, one of my favorite RC warbitds is the rocket powered flying wing the Me-163 Komet!

What do you guys think of these planes? Having a glow engine in the nose and using a rocket motor in the tail for takeoff is really exciting!

Light the fire and drop the tires!

The warbird guys of the Long Island Skyhawks club have been flying them for years without incident! What do you think?
