Probably the most secret aircraft to emerge from the USA in recent years, the F117A Stealth Fighter goes against a lot of aerodynamic theory by flying at all! The shape is radical yet strangely graceful and became a challenge to get a model flying based on such a non-aerodynamic shape.
The West Wings Stealth Fighter captures all the design features of the original, yet with little modification to the overall shape, still provides excellent flying characteristics. In fact, the only obvious design departure is the adoption of a little dihedral.
Our Stealth Fighter is built flat on the plan from a mixture of formers (cut from printed sheets) and balsa strip. The main fuselage/centre section is in one piece with the outer wing panels being 'butt' joined to it. The finished model then has a large effective wing area with a basically, flat-bottomed wing section.
As a glider it is amazingly efficient and has a very shallow glide ratio. Details are given on the plan for a clip on 'rubber power' conversion, which provides true one-man flying from flat fields. Just unclip it and you've got a glider again. The choice just adds to the flying flexibility.
Balsa Printwood Kit Rubber Powered.
Kit includes: Canopy & Markings, Plastic Propeller & Rubber Motor to power the model if required.
Adhesive and paints will need to be purchased separately.
