Remote Control A380

Wed Jan 04, 2006 10:08 am

Hello all.

I came accross this video http://www.metacafe.com/watch/45336/remote_control_airbus/ This is amazing. I have one question, what kind of engines are they using to fly that baby?

Holy sh** dude, that is the coolest r/c airplane I've ever seen! Damn! I wonder how much those run. Up to $1000 maybe? It looked as big as a human.

The model was discussed in an archived thread. Not flaming you at all, just thought you'd appreciate the earlier reference.

I always make a search before posting (that's why I don't post much as lots of things have been discussed many time) using "control remote plane" as key words and nothing turned up. What key words did you use?

As I said, it's absolutely no problem! I happened to remember the thread (cos I saw the video) and also recalled it was something to do with the Etihad A380. That's how I found it!
