Details

    The Pogo is a VTOL (vertical takeoff & landing) plane - bags of fun either indoors or outdoors. This can be flown as a cruising slowflyer, or as a highly aerobatic plane - ideal as a hover trainer.

     

    History

    The first vertical take-off with a transition to a horizontal flight and back took place on November 2, 1954. XFY-1 POGO is a "vertical take-off and landing" aircraft, designed especially for ship decks. The all-metal Pogo used the Allison YT40-A-14 engine and counter-rotating propellers. A large vertical stabilizer above the wing was matched by an equally sized ventral fin. The seat was inclined 45 degrees toward the instrument panel for vertical flight. There were 3 prototypes made, the last one is exhibited in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, Washington D.C.

    A good power setup for the Pogo is a Hyperion Z-2205/34, 2s1p Kokam 640, 8x4.3 prop with either a Hyperion Titan 10 or Castle Creations Phoenix 10 speed controller.
