The Me-262 "Schwalbe" made its first flight in 1942. It entered production in 1944 as the worlds first jet fighter.

SOME HISTORICAL FACTS

-Length: 34 ft 9 in / 10,60 m
-Wingspan: 41 ft 6 in / 12,60 m
-Top speed: 559 mph / 900kph
-Engines: 2 × Junkers Jumo 004 B-1 jet engines (8,8 kN each)
-Armament: 4 × 30 mm MK 108 cannons


My replica is about 1:1 in scale, has similar maneuverability but is limited to turning cautiously.

The camouflage also isn't totally realistic, but I am fine with that.


CAPABILITIES

-about 550mph at sea level
-about 620mph at an altitude
-decent turn time at high speeds
-not so safe to turn at low speeds

WARNINGS

-can stall if you try to take off at below 250mph (it will allow you to get
off the ground, but not for long)
-don't pull too hard on the elevator (i know, I have been saying this way too much)
