That is a beautiful model and the skills of the pilot are something else.

I'll bet that you would certainly see a grown man cry if the aerial acrobatics went awry and that plane ended up nose first into a hillside or the trees.

I am not sure about a license but most model flyers do carry a significant liability insurance policy, usually $1,000,000.

This is just in case the aircraft becomes unresponsive to RC commands and flies on its own and strikes someone or something.

Ya think that was neat take a look at this one. I shared it here a couple years ago. My Father sent me this an email but the link was bad so I posted the You Tube link.




By the way that was pretty cool.

FYI, both those vids have been around for a good while now, I also heard about a year or
so ago that on a subsequent flight, one of them crashed and burned, a total loss... But
for the life of me I can't remember for sure which one it was, I think it was the B-52... It
was said that it represented a $20K investment...

It was the B-52. The decided to fly it on a not-even-close to neing good enought to call it a lousey day for flying R/C aircraft. Supposedly wind around 30mph. That's precarious for even the 1:1 stuff. That's gotta be dang near hurricane force for the scale. There's a video out there and it shows how much trouble they had getting it off the gound and the crash as well.

The sad video of the model B52 crashing can be found here:

Model B52 crash

The way it looses lift and crashes was eerily similar to the tragic "air show practice" wreck of a real B52, which can also be found on Youtube.


And as far as way cool, this giant B29 model sure is amazing:

These crashes are why I "fly" model trains, when my trains crash all I have is a bent coupler or a broken headlight. This adds character to the trains
