HI-RES IMAGES:

Here is a real special aircraft! This ARF RQ-1-B Spy Plane is powered by an brushless electric motor of the class 400 that replicates real famous NASA Spy Plane. Easy and quick to build, needs 4 servos and a Brushless speed controller. The very light frame employs two different types of extruded polystyrene and is covered with the mimetic camouflage films. The kit includes a set of super light wheels. It is not just a great park flyer but just a true electric scale model able to flight on the normal fields. The super detailed instructions permit to everybody with some building experience to afford this construction. Flying characteristics are excellent.

As featured on the May 2007 issue of Backyard Flyer


"What could be a cooler than an RC scale model of an unmanned aerial vehical? The new, easy-to-build Electric RQ1-B UAV from Nitro Models flies and looks great.  It's really an electric thermal glider disguised as a spy plane.  It's constructed of built-up balsa and has military camouflage covering.  Any intermediate or advance pilot will be completely delighted with it."

"Watt meter results with above set-up: 14.5A / 160W / 11V with just about 90w/lb.
The performance is just perfect for me as I tend to fly the RQ1-B scale-like for the most part. It's also fun to fly it like a powered glider, high enough to become a speck (never a problem with the range of the AR6100 2.4) then motor off and thermal around for 10 min. or so......then do it again. With the prop size, I found that anything larger than a 9" will certainly invite lots of prop strikes on take-offs as well as landings. Let me know what you decide to do and photos are welcomed."

UAV SPY PLANE

In real life, the RQ-1-B is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which the U.S. Air Force describes as a "medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle system."  It is a Joint Forces Air Component Commander-owned theater asset for reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition in support of the Joint Force commander. The RQ-1-B can be employed in moderate risk areas without risking the life of the operator. Examples include areas where enemy air defenses have not been fully suppressed, open ocean environments, and biologically or chemically contaminated environments.

The RQ-1A/B is a system, not just an aircraft. The fully operational system consists of four air vehicles (with sensors), a ground control station (GCS), a RQ1-B primary satellite link communication suite and 55 people.

The tail is swept down because the emergency landing parachute deploys from the bottom of the aircraft causing it to land upside-down. This inverted crash landing protects expensive optics and, because the tail is swept down, does not damage the tail.
