The Flying Fire Breathing Dragon
This is the remote controlled jet-powered dragon that soars through the air at up to 70 mph and belches propane-powered flame when on the ground. Proving its prowess before take-offs or after successful raids, the dragonâ€™s LED eyes can be commanded to glow red while it emits a fiery 3′ blast of flame from a cleverly concealed (and flight-disabled) propane tank and igniter built into its toothy maw.
A miniature turbine engine built into the beastâ€™s chest provides thrust that exits the rear at 500 mph, and uses 1/2 gallon of jet aircraft fuel or kerosene for 10 minute flights. With a head that swivels in the direction of turns, the dragon can climb and dive via wing ailerons and elevators built into its V-tail rudder, controlled with the 2.4GHz radio remote. Four clawed feet each house a 3″-diam. rubber wheel for braking and steering while on the ground.
Its aerodynamic outer shell is constructed from a Nomex core sandwiched between two layers of epoxy glass with internal structural formers made from high-grade plywood for lightweight and optimal flight performance.
