A Homemade Mrija
Rocky landing aside, this AN-225 still leaves you asking for more. You would not expect a homemade plane to be this huge and be this much of a beast in performance.
This behemoth weighs 206 pounds. Thanks to its two Behotec JB-180s and four EDF 90mm 6S’, the total thrust of the engine is 104 pounds. It should be noted that this is only a 1/16 scale of the AN-225, meaning its wingspan is “only” 19ft long and “only” measures 14ft in length.
Unfortunately, the RC model might need a bit of work after that landing. The pilot struggled to keep control of the aircraft during its descent because of the wind. Combined with the bouncy grass, a wheel flew off and an engine was taken out during landing.
Hopefully, the damage is minimal so we can see this plane fly once more.
