Default RC RG's based on the Cosmic Interceptor parts

Here are a bunch of RC RG spings based on the Cosmic Interceptor kit,
This one done to simulate an F-101 voodoo. For simplicity, I made the T-tail fixed and reduced the size and moved the wing back slightly to use just elevon control and not have to mess with t-tail mechanism and tail weight. I angle cut the rear tube 6" and have the motor forward and on the centerline. Needed no balast, dry was 10.5 oz rtf and just over 11 ounces painted with markings. I chose operation sun-run colors with a little artistic license. Pseudo afterburner cans are 24mm tubes sliced in half and flattened at the front and glued to the side, they were painted with stainless steel along with the lower half of the rear bod. Rest was testors falt gray. Colors are vinyl hand cut with some lettering from office depot.

The elevons are actually inboard and from the red line back and out to about the first 1" of what would be the aileron on the real plane. I avoided using the actual ailerons since they are smalll and can lead to tip stall when used as elevons.

Boosts and glides very well, even given the small wing area. 38" long, 24" wingspan, 2" diameter and 11 oz rtf.

Frank, you do such nice work. Looking forward to seeing a boost/glide on that one.

That looks great. Always loved the Voodoo's lines. Used by the Canadian air force for many years. Fast, and at air shows they would always make a point of doing a high speed pass and then pulling up and going to afterburners.

Very cool project !

The actual airplane did not have much of a role in the USAF as it was pretty much a plane without a useful mission. Lousy as a fighter and there were better/more maneuverable nuclear delivery platforms. One useful mission it served was being the carrier of the Genie nuclear rocket. It was used to intercept enemy bombers in that role, but never actually deployed a functional Genie rocket.
With the Genie's nuclear warhead, no guidance was required. Fire it near the bomber formation and it blew up anything within a huge radius.
