World’s Largest RC Model Plane

at 3:43 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Insane Equipment, What Were They Thinking


I have seen some big RC model planes before but this one is huge! I can just imagine the time and money invested into this thing. I would hate to even attempt to take it up for its first flight since I would be terrified of crashing it into a million pieces. My hat goes off to the workmanship that went into this marvelous machine.

    I thought this was pretty impressive: http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/TPC/fun-pics003/2001-2100/098.shtm Turbine powered, electro/pneumatic control system… Ironically I just came across it today.

    World’s largest?

    There are several full size UAVs, the Predator comes to mind (since I interviewed for a job working on it years ago, but didn’t want to move to the Mojave Desert.) They can be remotely flown, if necessary.

    The FAA RC’ed a full size 747 years ago for a crash test (You’ve probably seen it on TV where they purposely hit a barrier to rupture the gas tanks on landing.)

    Oh wow that was awesome! I’m not really into model aircraft, but this really sparked my imagination! Well done!

    Although the article wasn’t titled “World’s largest RC model plane crash,” it still scared the crap outta me to watch.

    Hi Landshark,

    Cool link, those are some great pictures!

    Hey Almost there and Nature,

    You are right I bought into the hype and thought it may be the biggest but you are right, obviously there are bigger ones… 🙂

    The articles states *model* plane. I don’t know of any *model* planes bigger than this. I’d hardly call UAVs and test planes models. I’ve seen this one before, but it’s still impressive what model builders can do these days.

    I seem to remember running across, a while back, a page about a scale model B-52 that may have been bigger. Of course, this would still beat it be because that one doesn’t exist anymore (it crashed on on of the first few flights. Just reading that made my wallet cry.)

    Wow! If only the sound would have been right… There are model radial engines that may fit this model but they are expensive… I really hope they can (or plan to) drop water baloon bombs with this one… 🙂
