Scale Lockheed L-1011 with RC Pushback Tractor

Check out this amazing 1/16-scale model complete with an RC pushback tractor (also called a “tug”). This aircraft is located in Switzerland and has a length of 11 feet, wingspan of 10 feet and weighs in at 46 pounds. The onboard camera also makes for some great video footage. Watch until the end to see the RC tug come out and retrieve the jet. Bravo!

  4. Wow! A lot of love went into building that aircraft! The in-flight views out over the wing were spectacular with the sunset happening out on the horizon. Just lost my Father-in-law this week. He introduced me to RC airplane building and flying 35 years ago and would have loved to see this video. Sad he didn’t get to but glad that I did! Thanks for putting it out there!
