Default Large Colonial Viper RC rocket glider video

I'm a little bit proud of this one this one came out really nice, and as much drag as it has is it is it boosts really well and glides like a pussycat.

Based on 4-inch bt-101 tubing and 9 mm depron for the wings and tail uses anything from an f 25 up through g 40s...

You need to be able to "air start" a second motor to kick-in the "Turbo".

Your SR-71 and F-105 videos on YouTube look like they glide really well.
The F-105 was very surprising seeing as that was one of the all-time turd worst fighters of all time.

Many of the "Century Series" fighters were very poor at dogfighting. I think that the F-105 was designed to deliver tactical nukes (or a tactical nuke) from its internal bomb bay. It was not really designed to deliver a bunch of conventional ordnance.

The F-105 Thud was totally unsuited for it's role in Vietnam. Out of the Century series only the F-101 was worse suited to dogfighting. Despite being a crappy airframe, the F-105 did manage some air-to-air kills in Vietnam due to superior PILOTING. Originally the F-4 was to be the F-110, but was already named under their GOOFBALL naming system as the F-4. That one is the only one fully-successful member of the "Century Series" of fighters.
I'm pretty certain a B-1B can safely pull more G's than a Thud.
Ugly as sin to boot.
The Brewster Buffalo is about the only aircraft uglier.
