Default Very very OT but Interesting

Two brothers in Belgium with more $ than sense

build and fly the largest r/c aircraft in the world,

a 1/5 scale (yes,1/5) B-29.

Has flaps and retracts,the works. 160cc engines.

The high speed buzz job is impressive:

Thanks for that, but a friend of mine says:

".... actually the two brothers are late. There is a B-29 here in
the U.S that is built at 1/3 scale. It not only flies, but
launches a rocket-powered model of Yeager's Bell X-1. It is really
spectacular. There are also huge models of the Avro Lancaster, Boeing
747, and Lockheed C-17 that take two or more pilots to fly.

The current interest in UAV remote control aircraft like the Predator
and Global Hawk have paved the way."
