GIANT Electric Airbus A400M, with parachutists!

Feb 12, 2012 17 Comments by

They don’t get much bigger than this! Check out this huge, 13.5-foot-span Airbus at a European airshow. The 92.5-pound RC model uses four Hacker motors producting 6000 watts and has two radio systems with 18 total servos. Build time was 6 years. Watch the entire video and you’ll see an in-flight view of the parachute release, and the landing is incredible with those tiny wheels!
