Default Bomarc RC Rocket glider

Here's one I just finished, based on my profile foam version, uses bt-80 lightweight tubing and BT-60 ramjet pods. 6mm drpon wing and tail surfaces. Built as light as I can while till having it land on the ramjets and not eject anything in flight. 16.7 oz rtf with an Aerotech E-12 RC or an Estes E-12-0. Wing loading is heavy for my models at 12 oz/sq foot, so glide is not steep but very managable. In over 20 flights so far, no damage landing on the ramjets.

2.6" diameter, 46" long, 21" wingspan.


Here are a couple of flight videos:
