Remote Control F-117A Stealth Bomber

I made this f-117A stealth bomber because I wanted a cool looking jet glider and I had some extra electronics laying around so I threw this together and i have had lots of fun with it. I made it with dollar tree foam, packing tape and hot glue.


  • wing span:44"
  • length:46"
  • high:8"
  • the longest flight was about 150' just throwing it
