Powered by an OS .15 and guided by a Futaba micro flight pack. Finished in a stand-way-off-scale USAF Thunderbirds theme. The dowels that link the planes together have been replaced by more modern carbon fiber. To ease take-off a dolly was made to avoid the complications of throwing.

I like the concept. You should give the plans to some poor aerospace engineering undergrad to try and figure out the aerodynamics. Would make an awesome 3rd year project.

I'd like to see this design upgraded to a larger size to give it more "show" presence.
