    My thought exactly :!:

    Looks like they took a real B-29 and shrunk it.

    And flew it beautifully .

    I wonder what kind of engines they used? Landing gear retract mechanism? How much fuel they had onboard? "All Up" weight? Nose wheel steering mechanism?

    WOW. Thanks syscom.

    I wonder how much $$$ is in that thing. I started to get into the RC world until I talked to a guy who said, "If you can't afford the planes crashing, don't do it because eventually they all crash!!!" And this guy was flying planes where he invested an average of $4000 per plane.

    Just guessing but those engines probably cost $1500-$2500 each. I have priced engines MUCH smaller than those that are $600-$1000.

    Methinks, it looks a lot like a "joint venture" There were more than one radio transmitter which makes me think that it took at least a crew of two just to fly it. What country was that ?
