A rare but fantastic sight of a seriously big F-14 powered by two Kingtech K210 gas turbine engines. Watch as it starts-up, takes off and demonstrates the swing wing mechanism.

This is a great scratch build project, and a great flying model.With the wings extended, the F-14 has excellent flight control and allows the model to takeoff and land as slower speeds. With the wing swept all the way back, the speed is impressive while still providing good pitch and roll control.
Electric servoless actuators extend and sweep the wings using steel control rods and brass ball links. The result of this design is a durable, maintenance-free wing sweep feature which provides pilots with a worthy F-14 flying experience.
The Tomcat has an extended wingspan of 103.15 inches and is powered by two Kingtech K210 gas turbine enginess. As the video shows, the Tomcat is an amazing jet on the flightline and in the air!//Essential RC
