Just imagine, one evening, as you’re walking around your neighborhood, you see this thing zipping past you in the sky!
It doesnt stop there though, They do two versions, the above one is the full scale RcSuperhero. It’s 75 inches tall, weighs approximately 3 pounds, and has an “arm span” or wingspan of 45 inches. The other is one slightly smaller at 57 inch, but still just as impressive! Check this smaller one out in the video below.
RC Superhero Info
Flight characteristics: Great! This is due to the low weight to surface area and that it has a high wing like a Piper cub with a low center of gravity. In addition, he has plenty of vertical tail surfaces due to the double side bodies; which adds to the stability. Also, the RcSuperhero has oversized control surfaces and likes to fly upright. He takes off by being thrown or by standing upright in a stand and lands on his belly skids.
Thrust: The RcSuperhero has about 6 pounds of thrust; this allows for vertical take off. RcSuperhero Package Includes: laser-cut foam, substructure materials, control horns, a plywood motor mount, 2 sizes of rubber bands, carbon fiber fabric strands, two 4mm square arm spars and other various carbon fiber sizes, a picassa photo build album with captions, materials list, and e-support materials (directions and tech. information).
Degree of Building Difficulty: Best if you have previous modeling experience.
Pilot’s skill requirement: Although the RcSuperhero is not a trainer any average rc pilot can fly this. If you are inexperienced I recommend that you practice ahead of time on a simulator.
