Way cool R/C! That last upside down low pass and the tight landing were remarkable.

OMG! That's the best video I've seen in years.

One of my uncle's got me into flying scale and I get a nostalgaic feeling of late nights in my bedroom pulling out the model board with wax paper over the plans and pinning and gluing stringers and fuselage parts (and eventually getting a mild buzz when doping the paper onto the finished plane).

That model is intense! Check out the sound of the engines as they throttle up for take off and wind up during V1 and V2. It sounds so realistic. And those victory rolls. I can almost hear the commanding officer yelling at the pilots (while secretely smiling with pride).

Thanks Terrel.

Anybody have one of those little remote control helicopters? Air hogs makes them and they only cost about $30 at wal-mart. They aren't much bigger than a matchbox car.

Definitely worth it! I highly suggest you go buy one and chase the cat around!

Those are way cool. My wife bought one for one of my grandsons (but he keeps it here in my office... heh heh).

Check out this tiny kite I bought for a dollar or two. It's a hoot.

WAY,Way COOL!

This guy has got $10K+ in parts and radios in that plane and his learning/flying curve. In another life/time. I built an flew model helicopters with six foot rotors a 1+ hp engines. Expensive hobby, but not as bad as broads, booze or boats.
