Radial Rocket RG
The Radial Rocket RG offers added aerodynamic cleanliness and performance to an already distinctive design. The
tricycle gear configuration enhances ease of take-off, landing and taxi operations. Flying the Rocket RG is like having
your own personal prop fighter!

Rugged composite airframe
designed for high performance
The Radial Rocket RG utilizes
extended wingtips, increasing
overall span by 16 inches,
offsetting the slightly increased
empty weight and preserving
climb/stall numbers. These
extended tips are a great option
for the Radial Rocket TD as well.

The main gears incorporate a
very rugged, heavy duty side
brace assembly utilizing welded
steel tubing and plate. 5.00 x 5
tires mounted on wheels with
extra heavy duty disc brakes
allow for the wheel/tire
combination to be completely

retracted - very clean!
The heavy duty nose gear drag
brace shares the same rugged
design philosophy used with the
main gear components. The nose
strut features internal shimmy
dampening, and automatically
centers the wheel/tire prior to

track is essentially the same as with
the fixed gear - a wide stance
resulting in great ground handling
qualities. The landing gear is
utilizing an electric motor to drive
the hydraulic pump and operate the
hydraulic cylinders. With the hi
