This is of a 101" Hawker Sea Fury that was just in a large modeling meet. I have the plans to build a 90" version. If you didn't know it was an RC you'd swear it was real....

More technical info on it. The plane it is modeled after was real and had some interesting history...

Man, they should try to take that thing off from a conveyor belt.

Love the Sea Fury.. It was the first warbird I ever saw in real life, and I made the mistake of standing behind it when it started up....whoosh went my hat...

I love the turbine powered R/C's by Bob Violet. Got to see a turbine demo at an R/C convention in Ohio many years ago.

Thank you for warning me. I will be sure not to watch them, and the other ones that are linked after the first one.

That was pretty cool. I had to look at really good, I thought it was a guy in an ultralight but the camera on the side was to big.

It is not a video from the the guy with the RC plan, it, for some reason, was in the "related videos" box.

Here is a Ducted FAN U-2. I have actually spoken with the builder/owner of this model. I have pics of it somewhere. It has a 150" span. I have plans to build this one too.

Here's a vid of a 23' wingspan, 8 turbine engine B-52 burning in--pilot lost orientation. He thought he was in a left roll and corrected right. Unfortunately, he was in a right hand roll.....www.mcgirt.net/RC/VIDEOS/Giant_B52/b52crash.mpeg
