READ CONTROLS TO MAKE LIFE EASIER

A JATO aircraft, the F-104!

About the pla... I mean rocket!
After a launch that did not include a crash, the plane flys very nice! Just make sure to drop the JATO thing when done.

This took many hours to make it have at least a 80 percent success rate, the original one compared to this is so different, it may be posted.

Disclaimer!
The rockets where not made by me, if you know who made them, let me know so I can credit them!

Controls
1-JATO
3-DROP JATO
VTOL-JACKS
7-DRAG CHUTE

Inspiration

!PILOTS NOTE!

This plane is not a 100 percent success rate kinda thing. Always let your engine spool ALL THE WAY UP! Then don’t put the jacks down (VTOL) for one reason the jacks mess it up!
Ex:

Other than that, happy flying, and happy unplanned disassembly!

-Enjoy!

    Yea, I made one with normal gear but it would never work right, so I compromised on the landing gear being a tad bit ugly. So yea, it was the launching rails. @ChiChiWerx

    Well, this is the second build tonight which had four landing gear! Why did you put two nosegear on this build—just curious, did it have something to do with the launch rails?
