A bungee launched EDF. Weight is 4lbs. Powered by 8 A123 racing cells right at 1000 watts.
The Blue Tail Fly was a unique combination of two different F9F-5's. Both aircraft belonged to VF-153 aboard U.S.S. Princeton.
The story of the Blue Tail Fly goes that a Lt. Richard (Stretch) Clinite was flying an experimental finish F9F-5 when he was hit by Communist flak and the tail section of the aircraft was badly riddled but he managed to get the Panther back aboard. In the meantime, Ens. William Wilds, Jr. brought back a heavily damaged standard Glossy Sea Blue finish F9F-5 with its rear section intact. After mating the two airframes, the Blue Tail Fly was born. It flew 12 missions in that configuration before being returned to the States for rebuilding
