Supersonic Scale Starfighter

Supersonic Scale Starfighter

Flown at the Jet World Masters competition, this 1/5-scale F-104N was built and piloted by Christophe Regnier. The 52.6-inch-span jet is built from a Skymaster kit, is powered by a Merlin 200 turbine and uses a Futaba radio for control. We especially like the touch-and-go and the drag chute that deployed on landing! Thanks to RCScaleAirplanes for taking this great video.
