Giant Swing-Wing F-14

Giant Swing-Wing F-14

Rudolf Winter heavily modified a Fly Eagle kit to create this beautiful swing-wing F-14 Tomcat. Rudolf notes that he spent approximately 400 hours building the plane, and it shows! Weighing in at 77 pounds, the twin turbine jet looks like its full-scale brother in flight. Thanks to tbobborap1 for taking this video and sharing it on YouTube.


For a behind the scenes look at what goes into building and testing a model of this size, check out this video where builder Rudolf Winter adds 90kg (198.42 lb.!) of weight to each wing. This is a mandatory test for German RC models that weigh over 25kg (55.11 lb), and he notes, “I am happy we did this test. On the first try, the wing broke at a load of approximately 6G.”
