Concorde from HM Modelltechnik


Driven by the fascination of the Concorde and the lack of a R/C model, HM Modelltechnik involved in developing the mythical Concorde.

Concorde was a supersonic airliner built by the association Sud-Aviation (later Aerospatiale) and BAC (later British Aerospace). Its cruising speed was Mach 2.02 at an altitude ranging from 16,000 to 18,000 meters. It was equipped with a delta wing, called "Gothic", and afterburner turbojet developed first for the British bomber Avro Vulcan. It was also the first civilian aircraft to be equipped with analogue electrical flight controls.

Commercial flights began in 1976 and ended 27 years later, in 2003. The aircraft's high fuel consumption made it run low. Its decline was precipitated by the accident of the flight 4590 of Air France in July 2000, single major accident of a Concorde

The beautiful shape and appearance were transferred to the model and from the very beginning of the project, HM Modelltechnik attached importance to realistic flight characteristics. The full glassfiber construction with a vaccuum sandwich wing design is a lightweight construction where the model is able to, proportional to its own weight, to fly noticeably slower.

This featherweight giant is powered by two 90mm turbines that are satisfied with two LiPo 6S 8000mAh (total 12S) to produce sufficient thrust in flight. The developed technique of the Concorde HM Modelltechnik model offers great flight stability, even at low speeds for the pleasure of the pilots. A track in hard or grass with a length of 100 to 150m is sufficient.

The model is a fully glasfibre construction. Every part is build in vaccuum sandwitch construction and is very light weight. All glasfiber parts have only a weight of in sum 5.1kg. The fuselage consits of 2 parts, easy for transportation (~1.8m and ~1.6m long). Besides the fuselage, there are 3 other parts: left wing, right wing and center section. A special retract was developed with a realistic concorde design (optional). The retract works electric and have 2 braked wheels on each main retract, so 4 braked wheels in total (optional). This is necessary if you fly on a paved runnway. Everything produced in Germany.

This model is not only a pleasure for the audience. For the pilot the HM Modelltechnik Concorde offers a stable flight attitude in gusty winds and also in the range of the stall speed.
A stall will be recovered after a loss of only a few meters altitude with an appropriate powerplant. Short take off and landing roll distances will not be a problem with the recommended equipment. A tarmac or gras runway with the length of 100m is sufficient. Diligent assistants aren't necessarily required since the model consists of multiple parts and can be transported to the airfield in a medium-class car. We also placed importance to the fast and uncomplicated setup at the airfield. Depending on the setup you can reach a flight duration of around 7 minutes plus reserves.

Although I do my best to complete this library, you may not find the model you are looking for.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
