    RC jets insanely expensive
    Saw a video of one crash the guy piloting it fell over crying(I would too seeing it probably cost $10k-20k at least), but damn did the explosion look cool looked like when those jets in movies crash. So wish I saved that video.

    Who knew that compressing air, injecting fuel, burning it, and shooting out a flaming exhaust in one small engine that could propel a vehicle to 200 mph would cost so much?



    Would be a cool project. But wow, expensive.


    I do like the idea of model rocket engines. Kinda like the JATO powered car from the old Darwin Awards story.

    And some of us think we have high repair bills after a crash
