A very unusual subject for JetCat – the 1939 proposal from Lockheed – a twin-jet canard! Randy Wrisley designed this and sent me his plans to put this into production. I just had to build one and it works! It is very stable in all aspects of flight, with a low-angle (both) right power bank that flattens to a large left glide. It is very smooth and maybe a little draggy. Duration was regularly 20+ seconds with a tantalizing promise of being able to ride those thermals. Plus you get 5 FAC Bonus Points for flying a canard!
Complete kit with all parts (excepting paint and glue!) as follows:
2 sheets 1/8″ laser cut balsa wings
4 sheets 1/16″ laser cut balsa fuselage and canard
1 3D printed fuselage nose
1 plan with instructions
2 1/16″ square basswood leading edges
1 FAC-legal catapult handle with rubber
