Anyone interested in seeing some very large radio control (R/C) aircraft in flight, including the crash of a large "165lb, 202" wingspan B-25's bomber", check out this link.

Here is a link to other great sites for R/C and real aircraft. There is a great video of a full scale Corsair and B25, plus a R/C P51, Cub, and stunt plane. Some of the R/C war planes are awsome (warbuilder).

Ok, this is really awsome - check out the inflight video on the R/C Piper Cub, and see other R/C planes pass the Cub - inverted. LOL, great stuff.

How many of you individuals have taken up the hobby? I have meet a few others in Hyperlobby that enjoy this hobby/sport/club. The few I have spoke to say it really is a lot of fun and it is actually, "wallet friendly". I remember when, I was young I received a COX glo-plug airplane with a tether. Ironic that I am responding to this post as I watch the History Channel and coincidently has Remote Control as the topic. Part of the program they showed the remote control aviation. I was facinated watching the program with a Helocopter flying up-side down and a couple of jets. The F-86 Sabre and a few other ones as well. The program announced the World record is 285 MPH. Looking at your post I watched the videos and then prompted me to look at different websites. It is remarkable the amount of people partake in this hobby from around the globe.. I looked a basic starter kit with radio can be bought less than $200. I was listening to the program and the man interviewed said his jet aircraft cost in the thousands. It looks like a great time and the initial investment looks promising. Thanks for the post.

I am building a 1/4 scale Piper Cub, and plan to use it as a camera and video platform. Digital gear is inexpensive and light, so this type of project is relatively easy. Flying R/C is very addictive - so is combat flight sims, lol!

Glad to see some of you enjoyed seeing the R/C planes in action.

I've got a very basic electric motorized RC glider, currently awaiting repair after I plowed it right through a tree (what can I say, it's hard learning RC without the benefit of an instructor). It's certainly a great hobby, and I can't wait to [attempt to] fly it again.

I was able to get mine completely RTF for $50 (shipping not included), but generally RC stuff is quite expensive - not what I'd call a cheap hobby.

You are correct - R/C is not cheap, especially large 1/4 and 1/3 scale WW2 stuff. However, once you learn to fly and maintain your aircraft, they can last a very long time.

Being able to fly a 1/4 scale P51B at 100+ MPH is awseome - especially when you can get it down to a couple of feet AGL, and in close.

If you did'nt know better you would think they were real. Just add sound and retact the gear and it would be hard to tell the difference.Been flying rc for 5 years and its not that cheap believe me. One crash can be expensive this I know from expencive. My last crash cost me a 5 cylender radial but that goes with the hobby. If ant one takes it up be sure to get an instructor as it will save you money in the long run.
