Description

The #Douglas F4D /F-6A Skyray. Another of Ed Heinemann’s now-classic designs, the F4D counted a number of firsts in its history, but like the #F3H, would be victimized by engines lagging in development. Despite this shortcoming and a short operational life, the F4D (or as it was popularly known, “Ford”) claimed a world’s absolute speed record, the first for a carrier-based aircraft and several time-to-climb records. An interceptor by design, it served for a time with the North American Air Defense Command #NORAD as well as equipping #Marine and Reserve units

The American Douglas F4D Skyray (later redesignated F-6 Skyray) was a #carrierbased fighter #interceptor built by the Douglas Aircraft Company. Although it was in service for a relatively short time and never entered combat, it was notable for being the first carrier-launched aircraft to hold the world’s absolute speed record and was the first United States Navy and United States Marine Corps fighter capable of exceeding Mach 1 in level flight. It would be the last fighter produced by the Douglas Aircraft Company.

Douglas Skyray Turbine Model Jet

The Skyray’s distinctive 50-degree sweptback wings with rounded tips give it a command of presence in the sky; its delta wing makes it extremely stable. Designed for a 120mm edf and high power electric motors and speed controllers, this  F4D-1 Skyray model can be replicated in many colorful paint schemes. The aircraft’s simplicity makes it quick to build and easy to fly. Maximum performance is achieved by using a 12s  lithium polymer battery. The lightweight xps fuselage has a high-tech inlet system for maximum efficiency, laser cut foam and step-by-step instructions. The wings and dorsal are built-up to assist in maintaining a lighter wing loading
