    That would be cool to see, Tom. Always wanted to build a Byron F15 with twin scale turbines. Expensive and I`d probablly just crash and burn.

    Thanks Tom. That was great. I've built a few smaller ones...in fact, I bought my first Fox15 with money I made selling newspapers. I was eleven years old.

    I like this one. An A10 "Tank Killer" RC Jet. And they say us Trap shooters blow money.

    You can learn to fly R/C planes on your computer. There are flight simulation programs that work with your radio transmitter and they're so realistic that
    you can get proficient enough to even take off and land. They're especially
    good for learning to fly a model helicopter.

    Where do these guys buy big gas and jet engines for these large models? That B-29 must have had a 30' wingspan.

    Usually they're motors adapted from a different use. Converted chain saw motors are frequently used. Some are custom manufactured just for model airplanes.
    Actual jet turbine engines are now made for models of jet airpanes and helicopters.

    To get an idea of how expensive this hobby is, imagine if you shot trap and frequently instead of the target disintegrating, it was your trap gun.
