Original.

Specially designed for the Mac Robertson Air Race 1934, this aircraft enjoys cult status among model builders. The Comet is 85 years old now, but still today her humps are appealing, as if she had been designed yesterday. Only five copies of the Comet were built. The red G-ACSS Grosvenor House is regularly presented as one of the Shuttle - worth Collection´s stars on the taxiway and even in the air again. The black G-ACSP Black Magic is restored with great effort.

Model.

The glattCAD Comet prototype completed her successful maiden flight on June 24, 2012. Both the original and the model are made of many wooden components. Apart from the wheel covers, no other fiber glass trim parts were required for the model. The two brushless outrunners of the Ø 50 mm / length 65 mm class can be installed and removed through the gear openings in the motor nacelles. When motorized with two combustion engines, the area in front of the anterior landing gear frame is designed as a removable cowling. The model is completely covered with balsa.

Maiden Flight!

A Long Line of Prototypes The history of the prototypes is delicate. The first glattCAD Salamander was already on her legs in 2015. Because of the incorrectly designed thrust vector, the machine crashed on her first flight. In 2017 it was time again: the next He-162 , with the corrected thrust vector, was ready to go. This machine also suddenly crashed after a short but otherwise impeccable flight. An inferior wing connector tube was responsible for her setting back the ears. Finally - in October 2019 it worked: suc - cessful maiden flight! When building the predecessor, we paid attention to the weight. The 2017 machine therefore only weighed 13.2 kg. With a Schübeler DS-86, it was perfectly equipped with 12,000mAh @ 14S. Since Daniel Schü - beler can now offer a fantastic HST-82 with the fully integrated DSM6043-650 inner rotor and a little more thrust at the same size, this is the EDF drive we recommend. A 12,000mAh @ 14S is ideal as a battery pack. The Salamander in the picture series on the left weighs 4 kg more. One of several goals with this prototype was to test all conceivable requirements of a typical war - bird model specialist with regard to the components used (main chassis in size 50, long flight time due to heavy 16,000 mAh @ 14S, extensive RC electronics equip - ment, etc.). The model has since been converted and equipped with a 140N tur - bine. It shows perfect flight behavior and the take-offs and landings also work perfectly. The glattCAD He-162 already reaches speeds of over 250 km/h (155 mph) at 70% throttle.

Original.

Willi Messerschmidt's aim in 1938 was clear: this aircraft served only one purpose - breaking the absolute speed record. It was also important for business strategic reasons to stand out from Ernst Heinkel's competition. Everything about the machine was special. The engine, a Daimler-Benz DB-601, achieved a power of over 1800 HP with special fuel and evapora - tive cooling. The cabin was placed far back to get space for the large coolant tank in the center of gravity. However, its lifespan was very short. On April 26, 1938, factory pilot Fritz Wendel reached an average speed of 755.138 km/h on the race course between Augs - burg-Haunstetten and Buchloe. It was the V1, later laquered and marked D-INJR, since the V2 that had actually been prepared for the record flight was seriosly damaged before at landing after a test flight. The record lasted 30 years. Today for piston-powered aircraft today it stands at 850.24 km/h. Some parts of the original aircraft, not being restored yet, live a sad life in a museum in Krakow.

Model.

The first flight of the glattCAD prototype by Mario Bühler, MFC Bad Wörishofen, on September 21, 2016 was unspectacular and successful. Since then, Mario has regularly shown his 209 at air shows. Sad to say, it has been lost during its first flight in 2020 due to an engine failure. The flight characteristics of the glattCAD Me-209 V1 were deliberately designed to be very neutral. Very high speeds can be achieved in this way. Mario's machine with the 9.8 kW electric drive (Q100-7M from Hacker) was regularly measured at over 270 km/h (170 mph). It would presumably be possible to achieve much higher speeds without additional effort. When building the prototype, no attention was paid to its weight. Accordingly, an oversized 12S battery pack with a capacity of 16,000 mAh was used.

für Landing gear, Gear doors, Light, Special functions. The gearCONTROL.846 was originally designed to be used for the glattCAD D.H. 88 Comet to be able to offer a controller for her spindle-driven landing gear. But the small controller based on an ARDUINO ® platform has a lot more!

Functions.

The gearCONTROL.846 can take over a variety of control tasks in flight and functional modelling- in short: Free control of up to 8 servos or electronic speed controllers (s.c. Channels ) landing gear struts, gear doors, speed brakes, etc. • Reading in of up to 8 limit switches (for controlling electronic speed controllers ESCs). • 8 configurable gear extend- / retract times ( Channels ). 4 s.c. Special Channels , e.g. for light, flashing light, double flash, rotating beacon, rising / falling dimming, etc .; pos. and neg. logic! Taking into account the dependencies of the Channels and Special Channels in up to 6 simultaneously running s.c. Sequences . • Runtime monitoring for ESCs. Direct influence on the Special Channels via a second RC channel of the remote control, using buttons or switches with up to 8 different positions each. • Alternatively, gear and light behavior can be controlled via one or two RC channels. • Combination of Special Channels switchable via a switch or button setting. • Each Special Channels can be controlled by several switch or button positions. • Separate power supply pins available for gearCONTROL.846 , servos and Special Channels .
