“He’s out there … flying the most lethal weapon ever made: the Blue Thunder Special.” Remember this early ’80s movie that starred Roy Scheider flying a highly modified Aerospatiale Gazelle? This RC 1/4-scale version is the handiwork of French builder Eric Meaux, who created it from a Heli Factory kit. The 24kg heli is powered by a Jet Cat SPT5H 7kW turbine and uses a 102-inch-diameter rotor blades. Thanks to Rcscaleairplanes for taking this video and sharing it on YouTube.
