    That is awesome in the extreme!'

    I fly RC stuff, largest is 1/4 scale but that - well, I doubt I'd have the nerve to fly it - knowing that apart from the time into it - probably also maybe $25k!

    Wonderful machine.

    IIRC, the 8-turbine B52 was larger, before the crash....

    I guess you can call it big when you need a pilot and a copilot to fly an RC plane.... Amazing!

    Can't confirm it, but this is probably the world's largest RC aircraft.

    It would be awesome if they could do simulated bombing runs with that bomber.

    Shoot, the Air Force should sign those two up to run preditor drones.

    You could make your own bombs and drop them from your RC plane... wait, that's probably against the law. This is a very impressive hobby - I'm surprised they haven't outlawed it yet. Very impressive plane!

    They go one better - they have a Bell X-1 at the same scale, and they carry it up, drop it and fly it off on rocket power.....

    You can buy little plastic bomb cases that you fill with chalk or flour and drop.

    Kind of fun unless you get too wrapped up in where the bomb goes and don't fly the airplane..... (don't ask me how I know. Wasn't me flying, but it sure wasn't pretty)
