Fantastic!

I never knew these existed. I presume they did not sell well and only lasted a few years in the catalogue. A shame since they obviously put a lot of work into maing teh planes and track system.

Anyone got any memories of using it?

There's a related thread somewhere showing this beautiful scratchbuilt Mirage-Ferrari 2000:-





And Schumacher's Ferrari F2003GA taking on a Eurofighter...



Kind regards

I would imagine with the digital stuff and the ability to transmit infra red one could actually have dog fights now!!!

That Carrera Jet site is wonderful, especially to a turbinehead like me


The trrack systems seems extremely versatile and I love the layout he's built above the slot track! Have your own airshow before the race!!

It's a shame it only lasted a couple of years in carrera's catalogue (1969-71). I wonder why it didn't take off? ....ahem...I'll get me coat!

Diff!

"Take off"!!!


Since the patents (if any) have probably expired I say lets do it again. This time with Star Wars stuff too!! ... AND infra red dogfights! Could we compete with the video games?

Run away Tequila, he's getting dangerous!


Hmmmm... at least the jet sounds might be more compatible with the general pace of slot racing projectiles!


.... admiral's daughter, eh?

Rich

Well my english is not that good, but I´ll try to explain.

You can drive on a singel rail with two planes at once.
It is not possible to overtake.
Some planes have specials like rockets or the apollo has astronauts to shot.
The mirage and the starfighter are able to eject their pilots if the plane touches the other.
Page 6 of the manual will tell you more...

Must be analog. Go digital - lol.

I saw a very small remote helicopter here that fits palm of your hand. I was thinking of one for evacuating injured drivers and corner marshalls.
