Actually has 8 "real turbines" at about $1500 each !!!
Took over 2 years to build. It has a wing span of about 22 feet. Takes multiple pilots, as there are so many things to control.
Think they were nervous during the maiden flight ???
Unbelievable that someone would make this - all real turbines! $12,000 just for the engines !!!
Now if they could just make it drop miniature bombs on miniature insurgents!
Check out the movie link below to see the first flight. It's kinda long, takes a while to load
