WOW

A realy nice one, looks gorgeous. and the sound is almost as deafening as the real one.
I bet the costs for this baby are also very very high.
But again its a beauty . Btw the real B52 is a beauty and impressive one too.

AWESOME.

Russ.nl, what do you mean it crashed? The only thing wrong I could see was that one of the wing wheels did not deploy after landing. Did it crash after this video?

Now this is a B52 crash...

He's referring to the video of a RC model B-52 that did crash. It looks like this same RC model B-52...I don't know for sure.

This site is full of video clips. I love the Sukhoi that does an inverted pass under a bridge. I tried this in IL2 a couple times, too.

There is an orginization that controles flying of large scale remotes simply because of this happening in a crowded area. That B-52 could of killed a bleacher full of people!

The first time that B-52 crashed, was pilot error. I have a friend that knows the pilot and was next to him when it happened. He banked for a turn and got disorentated and put in the wrong MORE left aileron instead of leveling out. With the size and response of the model there was no pulling out. He was only able to salvage 1 fuel tank and 1 of the 8 engines.

Its not known, but he did rebuild it and flew it again after some very costly repairs. Something happened and that one also crashed. After that, the orginization forbid him from building and/or flying another large scale model! The poor guy has a ton of loans and sponsers he now owes money too since he planned on using the B-52 to advertise and make money.

Well then that must have been in different country because there is no organization which "controls" that sort of thing here in the states. You are free to do whatever kind of model you wish but you'd need a good insurance policy and a huge private expanse of land to fly it over. Most localities would forbid flying something like that since it could be dangerous.

What am I saying?? It is dangerous. One that size could destroy a house by both the impact and then the ensuing fire.

It never ceases to amaze me.
A very expensive aircraft taking perhaps years in the making with extraordinary skills patience and expertise and then they get some dummy who hasn't a clue how to video to capture the great climax for posterity. Sheeesh I wouldn't let him video my kids birthday party.

This movie below is amazing. An acrobatic RC helicopter demonstration that seems to defy all known aeronautic principles. The video is 9 minutes long, and it lands at the end, if you decide not to watch the whole thing...
