RC XC-142


So, a while back, we posted on the experimental vertical take off cargo plane, the XC-142. Five were built and tested, but the type was never ordered into production or service (though it came a good deal closer to that than many other VTOL products of the day).

It is a rather obscure aircraft. But wouldn’t you know it, some Radio Control modeller liked the challenge of building and flying one.

    That is a definite WOW.

    Here is one I like. No tech explanations, just lots of flight time.

    Note the tail gunner, best seen just after landing, making this presumably a “D”.
