    R/c B-29!

    For Chris and other R/C enthusiasts. I ran across this video of what may be the ultimate R/C plane. Now that's really getting into a hobby!

    We did have a thread a ways back on both this plane and also another large scale warbird - the B-52.

    Yes indeed this type of thing is impressive and the skillfull use of the X-1, complete with its very own rocket flight was superb.

    I can only dream of stuff that big - too many $$$$'s involved so I have to stick to my upper limit of 1/4 scale. Love seeing them tho.

    That was pretty cool. I keep thinking about getting into R/c, since renting a 172 is pretty expensive. Actually, I'd really like to automate an R/c heli, so I could just give it a place to go to and it would go. Then i could control a camera on it without having to do the flying.
