I would feel awfully dubious about having rocket engines so close to my stretched canvas skin!

Hi !

Here a little drawing of the projeted R.300 published on Fana de l'aviation (1982-83, I don't remember). The engine was 8 flat cylinders (double flat four ?) Chaise. Modelers made it for pylon racing ...

Thank you Tonton,


but that is not the same aircraft,the Riffard-Otfinovsky MR-300 was different from Caudron-Renault R-300,and the R-300 developed from it.
