Don't flame me for the title, but I have never seen an airliner model that ist THAT impressive. I have not been there and only seen the pictures, but this A380 powered with 4 real Jet engines is absolutely stunning:

I have seen more pictures which have been published by a visitor, but I do not know him, therefore I do not want to link directly to his side... You can find the pictures under www.bugnet.de, Forum, "Flugtag in Neuenahr, Bilder vom A 380"

Absolutely great...


EDIT: I just saw it might be in the wrong forum, Sorry

Just a daydream but if the A380 was in Etihad colours AND was the one sent to the DXB airshow, would love to see the faces of the Emirates PR guys when it landed.

A big "Mein lieber Herr Gesangsverein!" to the person who build that Etihad A380! Respect.

The wheels even retract! Amazing. I wonder what it cost to build that. I suppose nowadays it wouldn't be so difficult to build something like a BD-10.

I don't know much about radio controlled planes, but do those big planes have little cameras in the nose so the operator can fly first person while watching a monitor, because I'd imagine it'd be damn hard to land that 380 just by watching from the side... I saw a video of a big recreation of an Avro Lancaster (I think) crashing just after take off, gotta feel for someone that probably put months into a model and has to watch it crash!

As an ex-rc flyer, I can tell you this one would be about 8500€, with a very big portion of luck 6000. Not to forget the 1000s of hours of work...
The turbines are very expensive, depending on the size. Those are, btw, turbojets, no turbofans available at the moment...sure this will change over the next few years. So the sound will be a bit different from the original.



Exceptions confirm the rule.

That is a sweet plane!! I would be afraid of crashing that thing!!

What engines are these? They are turbojets, but which fuel are they using, how loud are they, how much thrust do they produce?

I guess that would be to heavy.

In some paper I read about a LH 747 that is around five meters long. It even has a REAL registration, because of its size.

This A380 also had to do a checkride which it passed. I don't know whether they put 860 small people in it, though  Wink

There is a British enthusiast who regularly flies a scale model of a BA 742 which is extremely impressive.

I just found some data on jet engines for model planes... max thrust 5,2 kg, weight 500g, Fuel consumption 160g/min.

There are also stronger models available. A pretty impressive thrust/weight ratio... I guess a model A340 has no problems with its climb rate  Wink

Here's the RC version of the B-52 test flight video. It sounds so real! Too bad it crashed and burned later.

Last Tuesday, Fraport had it out on the ramp in FRA. I guess it was mainly for PR pictures, etc., since they just started cutting the trees for the new A380 maintenance hangar. They let it taxi from E9 to E4. Not on the real taxiway though. It rolled on the "street" for aircraft cars in front of the taxiway, accompanied by about 5 follow me and security cars. Caused a lot of attention on the ramp. Keep your eyes open for some of those PR pictures...

Cheers,
Thilo

There are many planes that are that impressive in the RC world.

There was a B-52 with a 12M wingspan and 8 working turbine engines built in ENgland but it chashed. There is an amazing video of it on Flightlevel350.com
