R/C Aircraft Carrier Launches R/C Airplane - Video

Radio Control Aircraft Carrier Launch VideoI normally reserve the radio controlled (R/C) model news for my AirplanesAndRockets.com hobby website, but this is so cool that I know the many former and current military members who visit RF Cafe will appreciate it. For that matter, so will a lot of non-military members. Here is a video of a very large scale R/C model of the USS Kitty Hawk aircraft carrier being used as a launch platform for a radio controlled T-38 model airplane. Adding to the cool factor is the use of an R/C tugboat for pushing the aircraft carrier away from the docks before it gets underway. All the new radio control systems, by the way, are using 2.4 GHz spread spectrum technology. Some use direct sequence, some use frequency hopping, and some use a combination of the two.

Per the YouTube website description, "Our 13-foot USS Kitty Hawk replica launches her planes to the beach in this RapidNadion adventure. Some aircraft never make it off the deck, and others crash into the drink due to Kitty Hawk's prototype catapult system, but finally, a plane makes it through. Check out our other Kitty Hawk videos to see how this 13-foot behemoth came together: two "making-of" documentaries, as well as Kitty Hawk's maiden voyage video, can be found on our channel alongside the three-year-old footage of our smaller carrier model, and much more. Visit our website at the links below, and subscribe to our channel so you don't miss the air wing's return - **including carrier landings** - later this year! "

 

But wait, the coolness doesn't end there!

Check out this R/C submarine launching a missile at an R/C helicopter.
