    That is flat out awesome! Must take quite a bit of skill to fly those by remote.

    That is pretty damn cool. I never that there are remote control jets. They must be kind of spendy.

    I love those R/C air planes. My uncle used to have one, I flew it b/c I was too young. I have to ask if he still has his.

    I walked through a real one a couple of weeks ago. VERY small inside. The fuselage diameter is about the same as a business jet but seats 100. Standing straight up in the aisle my head was firmly planted on the ceiling.

    For a true turbine model up and flying, I have heard anywhere from $25-$30k.

    No, it continues after that for a little bit more. Last shot shows several Boeing jet models. Try downloading it to your own hard drive...hope this helps.

    Unbelievable post. I've been around other R/C models, but haven't seen anything of this caliber. Heck, the thing sounds as good as the real thing. And that landing was beautiful! Good one for the archives. Many thanks for posting.

    I love the final scene with all the other jets. That's some serious toys I would like to have!

    Was that a manual landing / take-off? Absolutely unreal.

    better question. Can I get one I could fit my cat in?

    i wonder about scale ordinance...

    "For sale" 1/16 scale Hellfire. Delivers medium load, will spread flames about 8 feet long. Reusable.
