75069 F-15E Functional Drooped Intakes

SKU: 75069 Category:


The real F-15 had drooped intakes so why not a 1/8 scale version of the jet? We use two 5/8″ diameter commercial air cylinders to droop the intake with a seperate air system. In the event of air system failure, the intakes are spring loaded to the full open position. The intakes work opposite the flap position. When the flaps are down, the intakes are fully open. When the flaps are up, the intakes do to the full down position. Very functional and what a conversational piece. (Picture is Ron Gross’ F-15)
