I want one of those!

If I was in there I would not worry about the G's. I would worry to stay alive. (Lot's of Negivitive G's)

Awsome!,

Some sites of interest for RC flying. I've had these in my favorites for a long time. Some of these sites have some pretty impressive videos too! If anyone has any questions about any of this type of RC flying, I'm actually paired up to fly with someone IRL who's nuts about RC flying this month. I'm sure I can ask questions if it isn't already covered within the following:

All the RC planes I've ever had were made of foam and they get stuck in trees, or the wings get ripped off when they crash :cry:

Cool video though

Anybody seen that video of the B-52 plane with REAL engine jets
:shock:

I also saw a A380 RC and a F-14 RC with real transforming wings and afterburners. Can you imagine what one of those things must cost to build?

After a brief search I found em

Yeah, that F-14 is tight, I think that the B-52 was pretty neat too.

In reply to some ones post, No there are no thunderbird paint jobs as of yet, my self and a few others have F-15 turbofan deducted jets where its about the size length size of an average desk size and about 1/4 of the hieght of it, if you would like exact measurements let me know, right now I can get the speed up to about 210 top 215 with being able to still track it. If i can get my digi cam to wrok (find batteries pretyy much) I also do have some pics at an old air strip i think, ill edit this and post em.

PS but there are F-16 jets out there, you just need to find em and paint them

Ok well in the bottom of my HDD here are some pics of my 15 and friends 18 and some other peoples planes we saw and a few air shows.

Ok since there is no attachment button, i think i may need to make a new post..
