    Thought you might like to see this, from a R/C indoors model comp, I think in Germany. It's a few minutes long, but well worth viewing! BTW, it's better with the sound on!

    Good stuff, I found it funny it took place in a school gym :D. It looked like it was on a string for half of the tricks.. let R/C it up and take the competition outside and have them do some full speed tricks or a time trial like the red bull planes!! Roar it up!!

    That took some amazing skill. Flying an RC plane is tought enough, but doing it within the confines of a room is something else. Talk about an aerobatic box!

    That's amazing!:shock:

    I just had to show it to my wife. She said, "Can you imagine what his wife went thru for him to get that good?".

    I said, "You can't get that good if you have a wife". She said, "Not for long, anyway...":lol:

    Good flying, R/C in the confines of a gym. The music left much to be desired,
    tho......
