Details

This is the Pogo VTOL itaircraft is based on the U.S.Navy's single-seat vertical take-off and landing fighter which could be used to escort convoys, based on cargo vessels which did not have flight decks. The U.S.Navy accepted Convair's submission and in March 1951 ordered the XFY-I as well as placing an order for Lockheed's project.

In the first complete experimental flight: the aircraft achieved vertical take-off, subsequently carried out the transition from vertical to horizontal flight and flew normally for about 20 minutes, before lowering itself gently to the ground. Skeets Coleman was very enthusiastic about the XFY-I and his verdict was that he found it easier to handle and more maneuverable than any other plane he had ever flown. Before the test program was halted, however, the XFY-I flew for a total of 40 hours and earned itself the distinction of being the first vertical take-off and landing aircraft to fly successfully in the history of aviation.

This model is For every pilot who has ever wanted a VTOL aircraft but frustrated with twitchy 3D aircraft, or worried about breaking their planes. Even experienced 3D pilot will find the Pogo to be a lot of fun, and it certainly draws a lot of attention
