    I know! I wrote Santa soo many times and he said it's back ordered.... lol.... but realistically speaking it was like soo many of my dreams, I could only wish for a fraction of what the pilot must of felt!

    PS. R/C airplane was just a temporary way of relieving my thirst of flight. But after seeing this vid, the heck with RC!!!

    That has to be the closest thing to being a bird out there. A bird with Jet-A anyway.

    I never want to see a crash. But I don't want to miss one either.

    That might be the most inspirational thing I have seen in years, maybe ever. All I want for Christmas is 4 Jet-cats. That was awesome!!!!

    All he does to control the flying wing is by moving his body, don't have control surfaces ! at more than 200 Kmph... amazing!
    He is actually flying like a bird does in this regarding.

    The thing seems to be heavy at the time is loaded in the airplane, although they claim to be made on CF I guess the fuel payload might accont for that.
    4 turbines no sure what kind of trust they produce, however I can't imagine all the necessary process to get them all running at the same time at the irplane cokpit, in-flight!

    The guy seems to be a super man by itself, check the biagraphy section of the same website.

    This needs to be posted on seperate threads so that all who fly RC can see it. Man, after the wet spot in my pants dried, I think that I would have had a smile plastered to my mug for a month if that were me.

    Wow... simply, WOW !!!

    He's got a pair of hangy down things. The kind you have to pick up and throw over your shoulder before walking down the street.

    I hope his success is rivaled only by his imagination.

    Best Regards,
    The Dude

    It does have control surfaces. Check out the other video further down the page.
