LARGEST radio controlled (RC) English Electric Lightning FIGHTER JET (2 TURBINE JET ENGINES)
Watch the World's largest radio controlled (RC) English Electric Lightning. Flown by the Large Model Association (LMA) Chairman, Dave Johnson at the LMA Cosford Show in 2018. This fantastic model is powered by 2 JetsMunt Merlin engines. Always awesome to watch !

This model was designed and built by Ted Allison. It took him 4 years to build. it has wingspan of 13 ft 8in (i.e. 4.17 metres). It's weight is 88 lbs.

Filmed at LMA Cosford Show using the Panasonic AG-UX180 4K pro camcorder by 'Dom Mitchell' of Essential RC YouTube channel.

The English Electric Lightning is a fighter aircraft that served as an interceptor during the 1960s and 1970s. It remains the only UK-designed and -built fighter capable of Mach 2. The Lightning was designed, developed, and manufactured by English Electric, which was subsequently absorbed by the newly-formed British Aircraft Corporation. Later the type was marketed as the BAC Lightning. It was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF), the Kuwait Air Force (KAF) and the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF).

A unique feature of the Lightning's design is the vertical, staggered configuration of its two Rolls-Royce Avon turbojet engines within the fuselage. The Lightning was initially designed and developed as an interceptor to defend the V bomber airfields from attack by anticipated future nuclear-armed supersonic Soviet bombers such as what emerged as the Tupolev Tu-22, but it was subsequently also required to intercept other bomber aircraft such as the Tupolev Tu-16 and the Tupolev Tu-95. The Lightning has exceptional rate of climb, ceiling, and speed; pilots have described flying it as "being saddled to a skyrocket". This performance and the initially limited fuel supply made the Lightning a "fuel-critical" aircraft, meaning that its missions are dictated to a high degree by its limited range. Later developments provided greater range and speed along with aerial reconnaissance and ground-attack capability.
