I first posted this in aviation hobby, but apperently not to much folks spend
their time there. I thought more people should take a look at this very cool
movie, so here it is. If you ask me this is a very cool hobby, but sooner or
later(probably sooner) this is just a lot of money down the drain!!!

Look closely at the beginning. The model has no rudder. I'd have bet you a hundred bucks on the spot that if they launched that long-wing, multiengine model with no rudder it would crash.

There are lots of little stick models built with only two axis controls. Whoever spent a thousand hours and God knows how much money on this one without putting three-axis controls on it just wasn't very bright.

Just looked again. Could it be that the entire vertical stab pivots for directional control? If so, maybe they should have copied the earlier models with the taller tails.

Ah... Sad...  Sad
But at least this one actually flew... I've seen a video of a very large KLM 747 model which flipped over and crashed after take-off being one meter up in the air. Now THAT is sour! (but so is this B52 btw). Years of work demolished in 10 seconds.

When you land, is there some sort of camera mounted in the nose of the plane so you can see where you are flying? I would imagine I would get really confused when it is flying around and I only see it from the ground especially during approach.
