Jet in Backyard?

Post by siberman1 » Sat Nov 11, 2017 7:10 pm

OK, we all have jokes about what Russians do or can not do. Jury-rig this, patch that, and so on.

What about building a complete jet of your own design, including your own design and made jet engine, for you hobby? Yes, there were some design/material flaws, but he works them out.

This thing is amazing!

I remember when those planes were prop powered. I also remember their being concern when they first started making these. They were small affordable and would make a great little weaponized havoc creator. The concern was small nations could buy a fleet of them and use them to harass shipping, commercial airlines, etc.. But at 320 mph, I don't seem them serving as much of a threat to commercial airlines, except maybe as an airborne speed bump.

I'd love to have something like this.

I dunno... . . a flock of geese did a pretty good job on US Airways flight 1549 right after it left the runway; it ended up landing in the Hudson River when both of it's engines were destroyed.
