about the plane:

-The Lockheed U-2, nicknamed "Dragon Lady", is an American single-jet engine, ultra-high altitude reconnaissance aircraft operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) and previously flown by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

-In flight

performance:

-just like the real u-2, the replica can operate at heights up to 70,000 ft


-At 65,000 ft


-At 65,000ft

-At 30,000-40,000 ft it can reach speeds up to 600mph, but in a dive from 70,000ft, you can get to 710mph, but at that point, the acceleration becomes smaller than the drag, so you can't go any faster.

controls:

-Ag1 (engine start)
-Ag2 (front wheel steering)


-Pilot s perspective

    Really good plane but there is only one thing wrong with it, you may already know and only made it like this to be reusable, but the wing landing gear detached so they could remove weight and gain more speed, but other than that it looks great and flies great.
