This 18-foot-span beauty is the handiwork of Gordon Nicholls and is flown here by Andy Johnson at the Large Model Association (LMA) RC show at the Royal Air Force Elvington airfield. This 15-year-old, 1/6.5-scale jet has more than 300 flights and is powered by two Wren 160 turbine jet engines. A replica of the Cold War bomber, it weighs in at 150 pounds. It’s a fantastic aircraft and its many successful flights are a testament to the rigors of construction under LMA regulations.

Thanks for bringing this video to us .
not only well built but well flown with stupid tricks that get out of hand quickly
Nice airplane and very nice flight
The design and building of this beautiful aircraft must have been a challenge! It looks awesome, both on the ground and in the air. All those in the design, building and flying are to be commended.
How about a EPO model, say 1400-1500mm. Twin EDF 5 blade. 4 cell, 2200mAH battery? That whould be a great plane!!
By the way. NICE FLIGHT!!!!
Very good looking plane! One of the nicest i have watched in a while! It looks like it handles well also! Nice flying! A very beautiful bird!
We supported Gordon about 15 years ago with a 5.0HKF Kerosene fueler. Gordon is a good friend of mine & Dave Biddington. Wonder if he still uses it?

First class modeling, across he has the something to work from that was this not everyday you guys such a great model to work with some I’m talking about the original plan that is very well designed.
If seem to be a lot more into wreck in doing scratch work without plans and someone with real skill acquired over time. I’m is what develops thathe skill.
