World's Largest RC Model Airplane « Remote Control Vehicles

At the rate hobbyists are outdoing one another, actual airplanes will soon be thought of as mini versions of model planes. I only became aware of "giant-scale" radio-controlled planes recently (not sure how I could have missed them) when reporting on an rc fly-in near St. Louis. That story, which is here, has the basic facts and figures and dollar amounts. This post is largely a repository for pix and videos. Before After [for tons more like this, check out this guy's site. He's built ...
