Opel Sander RAK.1 (Hatry) rocket plane
The RAK1 is a slightly different model, “a beauty at second glance” so to speak.
As a rocket glider it flies fantastically.

The model is also ideal for the increasingly popular FPV (first-person view) flight
, as the drive located at the rear allows a clear view to the front.

The model is built relatively quickly.
The shell construction (without covering and planking) can be completed in just a few hours.
The detailed illustrated construction instructions also help the more inexperienced model builder.

A supporting frame made of CFRP tubes makes the RAK1 very stable in the air and on the ground.
Certain details of the original were deliberately simplified,
making construction easier and positively influencing the flight characteristics.
For example, the Clark Y profile was used, which is perfect for the Rak 1.
Components made in Germany consisting of:
CFRP pipe material for the booms,
Basic wooden construction kit (fuselage frames, ribs, struts, wing ends
and other parts made of IBRACO and aviation plywood as well as selected balsa wood).
All parts are laser cut and can be installed immediately.
Incl. 17 page construction instructions.
PLUS the parts for the rocket module, including 8 pieces of aluminum sleeves
for holding the propellants, 
are already included exclusively at Rocket Model Building Climate .

Not included:
- covering
- Material for planking the hull
- 4mm round material / rods for the nose strips (either made of CFRP or wood) 
- RC components
- Adhesives, varnishes, propellants
