Remote Control Plane Launched From Model Aircraft Carrier

Being a former sailor in the United States Navy and serving on an aircraft carrier (CV-43), I appreciated this video that was done by RapidNation.  They built a model aircraft carrier and successfully launched an RC plane from it.  It took a couple of tries to get a successful launch, but they did it.  They even had a camera below decks in the catapult steam room and even some steam coming from the “cat-tracks”.

Their next project is building a landing system or for us sailors, “arresting gear”.  You can see more of their action at: http://www.rapidnation.com.
