50 Unbelievable Scale RC Jets
50. RC M346 Italian Fighter
So you want to own your own Italian fighter jet but don’t know whether or not it would be a good idea. Well, turn to the folks at RC Sparks Studios to get the answer. They have found one painted candy apple red, and made to scale. Even better? It’s wings and fins remove for ease of travel. There’s a carbon rod used to help stabilize the wing, and if you purchase the build kit you get the inlet duct, gas tank and assemlby hardware. The Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master runs about $180 or so.
That’s a small price to pay for such a tricked out aircraft that is easy to assemble once it arrives. Of course, it is modeled after the jet trainer for Italian combat pilots. It was the only jet that was able to achieve transonic flights without the use of an afterburner. This was engineered and designed to help reduce operating and acquisition costs. The two engines and redundant triple quadruple systems help enhance its reliability. Of course, the RC fighter jets named after the real thing are capable of doing all that, for a few hundred dollars it’s nice to pretend.
