Heinkel's He 162 Volksjäger ("People's Fighter") was a German single-engine, jet-powered fighter aircraft used by the Luftwaffe in WWII. The original 162 was constructed mainly from wood as metals were in short supply and prioritised for other aircraft. Despite this the He 162 was the fastest of the first generation of Axis and Allied jets. Volksjäger was the Reich Air Ministry's official name for the He 162. Other names given to the plane include Salamander, which was the codename of its construction program. It took less than 90 days from the final design being chosen to a finished aircraft actually flying!

The He 162 is a clean, sporty-looking little aircraft, with a sleek, streamlined fuselage. The BMW jet engine was mounted in a pod situated on top of the fuselage directly aft of the cockpit. Twin vertical tailfins were mounted at the ends of the upswept tailplanes to clear the jet exhaust, a high-mounted straight wing with a forward-swept trailing edge and shallow dihedral, an ejection seat was provided for the pilot (deemed far more valuable than the machine itself), and tricycle landing gear that retracted into the fuselage.
This scale model of the He 162 has been carefully designed using CAD technology and, is a faithful replica of the World War II original. All parts are pre-painted to a high level of detail, the aeroplane looks amazing! As an added bonus it's 95% complete straight out of the box, with only a few stages of assembly to complete before you can take to the air.
This plane is a stable model and has a well chosen, powerful motor for its size; you only need to give it a little touch of throttle and this warbird will be off, skywards. It will take off either from the ground or can be launched from the hand, and when it is launched, the fighter takes to the air with ease, and looks extremely realistic in the air.The He 162 can perform a whole host of aerobatics in skilled hands, but due to its stability it is a suitable choice of aeroplane for someone wishing to learn the thrills of model jets.
This Nitrotek jet comes with a 2.4G radio which means the range is longer and more stable plus you do not have to worry about interference from other fliers. It is also equipped with a powerful brushless motor, for the best performance. The plane is made from strong but lightweight foam that is more resistant to crashes and gives easier stable flight even in windy conditions. This aeroplane can take off from the ground or can be hand launched.
The He-162 comes with a sheet of Luftwaffe decals so that you can decorate your model as you wish.
