The RAK1 was our first S8E design. Franz Wei▀gerber scored 2nd in the 1994 Worlds with that one.

Propulsion: Rocket motor with a total impulse of 40 Ns (more than 1 lb thrust for 8 seconds).

RC System: Graupner/JR mc-12 PCM receiver, Graupner/JR C341 servos, Sanyo 50 mAh receiver battery.

This is the initial V-tail version. The final version had a conventional tail with the vertical fin pointed downwards to avoid the rocket motor exhaust.
