Nice. However, I've seen R/C Pyros before. Here is one from a number of years back (the first one I ever saw). It even has a realistic paint job.
Life is short and only happens once. So make it a good one.

What?

The guy who built that Pyro is an Austrian aircraft engineer who is also into RC model building. That thing is real.

I notice it still has to have a tail to be stable in flight, but it is cool! Now if we can ever develop anti-gravity technology, then we could build a full sized Pyro that performs like the one in Descent.

What do you mean a "tail"? :?
There is no tail. Just a wire for receiving remote control signals.

Are you talking about the "elevator/ aileron" that make it turn/ roll?
If so, that's not a "tail". :P

Now all they gotta do is make weapon systems and have targets for practice, and make more types. Awesome!

Yeah, it's got no more "tail" than a Pyro would have ... which is aerodynamically sound despite it's appearance.

I'm trying it hard to find some vendors for the material but currently no luck. :( They can order it for me but only bigger amount. :/

Does someone know a store in Hamburg (Germany) which sells such material. I need foamed plastic, a motor, and so on.

Das ist alles normaler Modellflugzeug-Bedarf. Guck doch mal im Internet; "Modellflugzeugbau" oder so.

Habe ich schon ausführlich. Wie gesagt, die wollen/können/dürfen nur große Mengen bestellen und nicht kleinere - ich schätze, dass nicht so viel Material nötig ist.

Hier meine geschätzte Materialliste:
1x 2m² 3mm dick
1x 2m² 6mm dick
1x 2m Holzstab, ca. 10-15cm²
1x Motor 16/15/5
1x Propeller, Plastik 4,75x4,75
1x "Set Flugzeugkontrolle" (Fernsteuerung und Empfangseinheit mit Servos und Seilzügen für die Ruder)

Werkzeug - alles im Baumarkt erhältlich - habe ich schon. :)

Okay, ich habe hier wen gefunden. :)
