Looks and sounds like the real thing- except for the landing

Total up the cost of two engines, many servos, radio gear, fuel, etc and it can be considerable.

Saw a video sometime ago of a RC B52 build by someone in England.

I was impressed how quick it got off the ground, I have an F14 and it needs about 400ft to get airborne.

Air Force aircraft always get airborne faster than Navy aircraft
