Default Der Himmelsjäger RC RG

Cross posting in case people here are interested.

Stanton Ewert Posted a really neat scratch build on facebook he did that was themed on a fokker red triplane but highly modified. I had a receiver and set of servos my family got me for christmas and I decided I wanted to do something themed like that as well, but also to call back to my first aileron plane, a Das Ugly Stik.

I decided that since it was a rocket plane, and retro-futuristic(is that a thing?) I'd do a canard but keep the tail and wing shape a-la ugly stik.

I used a doubled kf airfoil wing mainly for stiffness, and non movable canard and elevon controls, 27" wingspan, 30.5" length, 2.6" diameter. Weight all up rtf is 11 oz.

It uses BMS BT-80 tubing, pnc-80bb for the nose, and model plane foam(MPF) 6mm for the wings with depron tail and canard(depron is slightly stiffer)

I gave her some paint, with hand cut vinyl trim, added a few details, machine guns, nose art and I give you

Der Himmelsjäger

Looks like something you would see Dasterdley and Mutley flying in Wacky Races.....or as someone else suggested from the video game Crimson Skies...
