    Default John of Phoenix needs this

    1/6th scale flying cobra! 81" long.



    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I don't think it would get to 14,000 feet anyway.

    Can anyone make out the image on the dog house? It's nothing I've ever seen on a real Cobra. Looks like a yellow Indian.

    That tail number is a little off, it has zero as the leading number. I actually flew 17062 in Vietnam and she was ultimately converted to an S model and looked like the model in the photos, just not nearly as clean.

    Her name was "HULK".

    Here she is in her original version with her numbers inside the Bravo Battery red square.

    Armed to the teeth.

    More stories please. It's been a while since you've delivered us a saga.

    all these crazy rc enthusiasts, can’t imagine being near rc helicopters. At least planes kinda go in one direction but those helicopter blades are pretty much covering everything in the plane of their blades.

    Looks like the profile of ET if you ask me.

    Doug. I think you're right. A skull on a pike, maybe. 1/9 used the callsign "Headhunter" but didn't have anything on the pylon like that. There's a Cobra FB page. I'll see if any other Cobra jocks recognize it.

    I'll start a thread for another story next week. Glad you folks like them.

    Looks like a skull mounted on. . . something.
