It doesn't have the same grace as a P-51, B-29 or B-52. But it's a very beautiful plane non the less. I have known a couple of people that worked on them. They are a work of art. Even if they do leak fuel.
had a dude in b-dad.. very spensive helicopter.. had it up pretty high and a couple of blackhawks came in with their jammers on.. chopper took a dirt dive and we all walked away as he was screaming bloody murder... lol

Dude... That was cool.. My dad used to take me to alot of air shows, RC and normal sized planes.... I remember an F 4 fantom RC plane back around late seventies or around 1980. That thing screamed by at an insane speed... Dad would crap if he saw this video..... I was nothing but grins....... I would like to use the SR-71 version upgraded with all the high tech hardware and use it for ops in war zone areas....That would send fear into their hearts....... I like the A-10 idea to...SmokeRolls
I have some planes and Nitro cars, Its worse than the gun hobby. I dont crash my rifle on the curb everytime I take it out of the safe. I went through 3 ARF planes before actually landing one on a regular basis and not tearing something off.
What these people do is pretty neat, but to have that much cash tied up in something like that when something off the wall could ruin your day, week or even year is mind blowing.
LOL his wife has the fire extinguisher. I think he must have lit this puppy up in the garage before!

have you flown rc before? if you start out with an edf jet like that one you have probably about a 90% chance of destroying it completely on the maiden flight.if you are looking into getting into the hobby or just something to throw up and fly around to relax id recommend something with 3 channels. something like a hobbyzone super cub or the multiplex easystar. i guess if you think of rc's as toys they will seem pretty spendy at first but they will give you a lot better chance of having a successful entry into the hobby rather than crashing a jet and that being the end of it. the cool thing about electric rc's is that u can just get them and fly for one price and not have to go out and buy anything to make them go, but you will eventually want to upgrade and just like rifles you will end up wanting more and will more than likely find an excuse to get yourself them, no matter what. like any hobby it can be ADDICTING!
my youtube channel is mxf7010g8k. i have some videos of the easystar flying and also a rc car. unfortunately i havent ever gotten video of shooting or hunting
Wow, I want one. I have a couple RC planes but nothing near that awesome.
Axe- if you are looking into starting into RC flying, I would highly recommend getting a sim for the computer like RealFlight. Will save you a lot of money and heartache compared to crashing a real RC plane.
Vic- They only leaked prior to flight. When they got up to speed the air friction would heat the fuselage causing the metal to expand and seal itself. Good times.
i plan on hanging out with the local club and let them school me on a tandem trainer box dealy, lol. so they can save the plane. i wanted to get a simple 2-3 ch powered electric glider for a starter. grab a good 2.4 radio with some memory so i can use it for a few models. electric seems easiest, i got my first gas car on a screaming deal. nice used ofna 4x4. havent started it yet, just ordered a starter box. gotta wait for the snow to go away. i like all the small foam warbirds they have out now, p-40, p-51 and corsair. ill start small and cheap so i dont cry too much

Good idea. Flying RC planes is definitely not a hobby where the adage of "buy once, cry once" applies. Caution and understanding that you may completely destroy anything you put in the air results in a bit more reality for most people.
