This is the unedited video of the first flight of my SS2 Parkjet design, flown June 22 2010 at Mojave Air & Space Port.
It is my belief that this is the first flying model of the Scaled Composites / TSC / Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo space tourism vehicle, currently in flight test here at MA&SP.
Model was designed in Google Sketchup. Construction is 6mm Depron foam with local carbon fiber buildup. Three channel elevon control. power is a Grayson Microjet v3 outrunner motor swinging an APC 6x4 prop & 20A ESC, powered by a 1800MAh 28C Lipo pack. Wing area is 275 in^2, flight weight 24oz.
Special thanks to BR for suggesting I just STFU and throw the stupid thing.
