Cool
V-1

Very nice V-1 (Fi-103) scratch built by ElekroRalf brings renewed terror to the skies - and uses a scale launch ramp

Video of first flight :

Looks like a perfect candidate for an SOS (scrape off the snow) takeoff ...

Presumably it "lands" "dead-stick" .

Man Herb, nice jet! Wow, how on earth do you fly that FAST?! I couldn't even keep up with it on certain parts of the video. I knew there were really detailed and fast models like this one out there, but man, I don't think I've ever seen one move out quite like that! You must have been flying for a long time to be able to handle that jet! I'll look forward to seeing some of your other jets, I might look some more up on the forum. Happy Flying!

Herb was kind enough to post a link so we could all see Ralfs creation.
btw, It was moving pretty quick!

Flying it must have been somewhat uncomfortable

http://m2reviews.cnsi.net/reviews/ax...uckerfi103.htm

Apparently - according to test pilot Hanna Reitsch, here in a picture standing next to pres. Kennedy,



- it flew "like a grand piano"

A nicely restored V-1 can be seen here:
