How big is too big – 200+ pound RC jet …

Mar 02, 2012 1 Comment by

This 214-pound (that’s right: two hundred fourteen pound) A380-900 Airbus built and flown by Reinhard Oetken is powered by four turbine engines and has a gigantic 19-foot wingspan. It’s a gorgeous model, and watching this monster plane take off and fly will take your breath away. Assuming the RC model adheres to all of the safety guidelines of whatever country/airport where it is flown, what do you think about planes that are this big? Super cool or super scary?
