STAR WARS radio controlled (RC) Pod Racer ACTION ! (The Phantom Menace POD RACING)

STAR WARS radio controlled (RC) Pod Racer ACTION ! (The Phantom Menace POD RACING) The RC innovation of the DMFV Indoor Team, amazes the crowd at the Modell-Hobby-Spiel Trade Fair in Leipzig, Germany. The music started playing and the excitement and anticipation grew...then pod racers drove out to the start line along the floor and then started their engines and hovered ready to start. The race began and they were off, but as in the film, Anakin was left on the start line with engine problems with the crafty, vicious Dug, Sebulba, streaking off into the lead. But who won the race ? Dietmar designed and constructed these models. He flies his Pod Racer together with his son Lukas and friend Chris. In some respects, the P-47 dated back to 1931 and the earliest days of Alexander de Seversky’s struggling Seversky Aircraft Company—a firm that in 1939 would be renamed Republic. Was the Thunderbolt a Republic design, or did it owe much to the 1930s airplanes created by Russian émigré, air power advocate and entrepreneur de Seversky? The popular position is that Republic engineer Alexander Kartveli designed the P-47 on the back of the proverbial envelope during an overnight train trip to Wright Field in Dayton, Ohio. The most convincing proponent of de Seversky’s crucial role in the design was the late engineer and aviation historian Warren M. Bodie, whose book Republic’s P-47 Thunderbolt: From Seversky to Victory claims that de Seversky never got the credit he deserved.
