    Not to mention that building and flying these things does not require you to have it inspected, and you dont need a valid pilots license.

    Good point. MAAC in Canada provides insurance coverage for modelers registered with them (AMA in US does the same). In Canada, there is a 77lb maximum weight limit for models. Bigger requires a special license from govt. I think the US limit is 55lb. Go over that and if you have an accident involving damage or injury and you're not covered.

    Here is a great movie of a 1/5 scale V-12 being tested with different propellers.

    I like how most of the landings are of the same standard as beginning flight simmers

    In addition to the other factors already mentioned, the builder may be ineligible for a pilots license due to any number of factors that don't disqualify him or her from RC modelling.
