Giant Airbus A400M

Giant Airbus A400M

Powered by four electric motors, this 12-foot-span  RC Airbus was built by  Hannes Heppe and flown at its first airshow at Flugtag in Grenchen, Switzerland. The 83-pound aircraft uses a 6000mAh 6-cell pack per motor and can fly for 7 minutes. Thanks to Markus Nussbaumer for taking this great video and sharing it on YouTube.

  1. very very very nice

  2. I am into RC too, can I get any contact details for the maker/pilot of the plane.

  3. Hello Debra,

    I just wanted you to know how much I’ve been enjoying your work. I wish there were more women like you! So do hundreds of thousand of other men…

    You are incredible.

    Sincerely yours,
    John Z.

    P.S. I hope you will continue your fine work… Best wishes to you!

  4. V nice – needs a sound card.

  5. Great model – some people have too much $$$ and time on their hands.

    Glad I don’t have to transport it .Milt P.

  6. pretty sure we could have done without the slur on the female pilots

    1. Ease up, it’s called a joke, it’s a different culture and, probably, not as pathetically PC as the US. And remember, from a female perspective, he’s just a man.

  7. It is a C-17!?

  8. How about some more specifics on the motor size, props, ESC’s, build time, overall weight, cost…..

    1. I meant weight with and without batteries… Thanks..

  9. Terrific effort… Great results!

  10. Wow, do you know where they got the 8-blade props from? Also, i read elsewhere the H-Stab is also adjustable.
