Not sure why I had not seen this one before but the forums had been a little slow so I thought I would share it.

The care that they must take with the control work......it would be interesting to see a block diagram of the onboard equipment.

Yes it is nice but at the end the tail did not look tall enough. Also the markings on the vertical fin were different. It has to cost a fortune to build a turbine 4 engine RC aircraft. Any other thoughts?

You are right the marks on the vertical fin are different .

It seems that we are not going to have much luck treated to find the video of that airplane , based at least on which the page of the owner says .

Click in the first pic you can see some details of the airplane .

Have you found a 3rd C-17 RC plane? Different size and owner. I didn't know they were that poplular.
