That was an awesome vid, great flying, great landing...

Crap...... I wonder if he needs a transponder for that thing when he flies it LOL

I odn't think I like the turbine engines too much though on that..... I 'd prefer to stay prop on that thing, the noise is half the coolness

Also I didn't like how the fueslage was so narrow to the point of needing wingtip gear.....

Yea, I liked the prop noise on the B-29 too. Sounds more realistic. The turbines sound more like a turbo kit on a ricer. Did you guys see the video clip of this B-52 crashing and burning?

If you're talking about the B52, the real things have wingtip gear. Bergstrom AFB in Austin TX used to be the SAC headquarters. We'd go sit outside the fence and watch the planes take off. B52s actually flap their wings while taking off!! It'* freakin funny to watch!!

Check out this Airbus A380 R/C airplane, check out the pics and the film clip... it looks and flies like the real thing...

At least the model does not have any flaws like the real one does...

Not a question of stability actually. They have tip-gear to keep the wings from hitting the ground during takeoff and landing stresses. You may not know this, but in flight, the wingtips of a B-52 are almost ten feet higher relative to the fuselage than when at rest. They're very flexible.
