Model by George Gassaway, of a 1/60 scale piggyback boosted Radio Controlled Orbiter. Video shot by Greg Warren. Model boosted on an Aerotech G12 reload, burning for 8 seconds. Orbiter uses rudder for steering, and elevons only for elevator pitch (much smoother steering with rudder than with ailerons or mixed elevons). Third R/C channel is orbiter sep from carrier rocket.
