The Gloster Meteor was an early jet fighter developed at the end of the second world war. With two engines for adequate performance, the Meteor was used to shoot down V-1 flying bombs.


This section contains a review.   Please note that statements made here are (mostly based on) a single person's opinion.

The model is easy to fly, but ailerons are a little slow to react due to the large engines on each wing. A fast aircraft, with low wing loading, allowing for low landing speeds.

A set of vintage instruments really enhances this model.
