    Biggest RC plane

    Whats the biggest remote control plane that someone made? I've seen a B29 that has 20 feet wing span. I ask because I am very interested in building a 1/2 scale fighter sometime in the future.

    RE: Biggest RC plane

    There were some guys in the UK about 2 yrs ago that did a B-52 Fortress and it was even bigger with 8 actual jet engines. I think it flew about a half dozen times until it went in

    Herer are the specs

    RE: Biggest RC plane

    I think this honor belongs to the Northrup Gruman folks and there Global Hawk. At over 130 foot wing span that has got to be tough to beat
