    Me too That category tho is IMO totally a rich man's game. Not sure whether that had two or four actual miniature turbines but - each costs about $3.5k IIRC. I'd guess $25k tied up in that beast.

    Just this morning I flew my 1/4 scale Ryan STA a coupla times - that is as big as I need to go and can afford - even that has approx $1k tied up in it! I am beginning to downsize a bit now - just as much fun.

    However - it's good to see these giants - always enjoyable.

    That is impressive. Not something I'm into doing, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy watching it.

    Saw that one a while back. I sent it around and darn if someone didn't send me the follow-on video. That is, they crashed it.....like boom, fireball and all. And yes, it did have (8) turbine engines, not 4.

    Thanks for the ride. That was cool. I own a remote control plane with a four foot wingspan. Flew it five times and crashed it five times. Had to rebuild it from the rear of the wings forward the last time. Just could not get the weight and balance correct.

    Yup, that was me that sent you the crash video, Prospector. I'm betting the owner was crying after that....
