Fast, long range and reminiscent of fifth generation fighters, the Raptor
is a small, very advanced drone paper airplane. Starting as a development of the Super SkyHornet
quickly became an entirely new aircraft with an appearance akin to the Lockheed MartinF-22 Raptor
and F-35 Lightning II
multi-role stealth fighter aircraft. I am very pleased by its good performance and shape.
The Raptor was developed out of the concept of a "twin-finned Super SkyHornet". The new twin tail was to be heavier, so the trailing edge of the Super SkyHornet's wing had to be tapered to reduce its lifting area. The Raptor was found to perform very well and, after thorough flight testing, it was allotted an instructable.
