Video 1

The 28" Rabid Models Meteor is the same size as our other models but has a larger wing area and the horizontal stab is set higher - and this combination created a model that will fly easily at very high angles of attack. This kind of maneuver is called a "Harrier" and the Meteor does it quite well! The video to the left shows the model with regular brushed IPS motors flying indoors, and includes a segment of Steve showing off the "Harrier" maneuver. With brushless motors it is much faster! You'll have a great time flying it. The Meteor will be available as a laser-cut kit in the summer of 2011.
