Is it me or does it seem that they make more money than we do, in Germany or where ever that is. Looks like anyone over there could afford a Moki unlike here where it`s only for a few. Look like I got to move over there in order to make some decent money. Nice video, lots of different models that you don`t see over here often. Good find Ram.

its like one Moki is not enuff for those guys. The Europeans just do things different. Their models seem larger, sound better, just something different about the air they breath....:D

Well the key thing is , they have the money to do it. They make more money there than most of us here. They also work less hours per year, go figure. Now watch how some owner of a company is going to preach about we are more productive or some nonsense that means nothing if you who doing the work not making the real bread.

They live in houses the size of closests and most drive shopping carts to work. Everybody chooses how they spend there money. Drop your cable TV, there is another $840 per year towards a Moki.

I want to give a nod to the guy who put his hand-propping glove on the prop at 0:42.. a nice gesture for all passers by to see..

Boy, the Euro's need to kick in here.
I've just put petrol in the car... $2 per liter!
Just paid 230 NOK (about $33) for two SMALL steaks in the supermarket.
Plus other numbers that you guys can't believe (but will start gettin' used to over the coming years... all apart of the great global plan).
Welcome to Norway, the most expensive country on earth.

Europe is in a MAJOR economic crisis, indentical to the US.
Suicide rates are sky rocketing in some of the southern countries... Some people even selling/giving their children away.
it's just dreadful... and I guess, only going to get worse.

Sure, some of these countries have had working weeks/retierment age far lower than in the US... but believe me, they live VERY simple/humble lives. It's the Med lifestyle.
Main stream Euro's live a life style far reduced from the US, believe me.
They just spend what money they have left after paying the bills, feeding the kids. differently.
At these show, you're seeing the RC maniacs... the guys that'll spend what ever it takes, normally meaning no holidays for the family, no expensive treats what so ever, so they can feed their (some would say selfish) hobby.

Would I spend X $ on a Moki... or should I spend it on my families house, life style, etc.
That's easy for me to answer.

do you need more than one airplane? I dont fault anyone for spending their money as they see fit. Heck, I am enjoying their planes and it inspires alot of us to do better or more....unless your one of those who thinks the govt should do it for you or redistribute what one has to those who dont[:@]

Unfortunately, that seems to be the plan.<div>It's now official, the world is run a small group of lunatics.</div><div>The asylums where deregulated 20 years ago and they all sort employment in Government.
Down load Agenda 21, the UN agenda for sustainable development in the 21st Century... Retified by all nations.

Average people feed their families from building big houses for people with extra "earned" money.

Plus side: glove on. Minus side: his cigarette as he started his gas engine. DOH

Nice sounding engines. But I noticed just ok landings though, except for a few.

tell me someone, are they slowing down the video on some of those flybys? Doesnt that B25 takeoff kinda remind you of the Dooittle raider takeoffs from the Hornet?

Hey Rambro,
Thanks for the video.

Great video! I love the sound of those multi cylinder engines.

A couple things I noticed; the P-47 seems very popular and athe swastikas are either omitted or blocked out on the German aircraft.

exactly my thoughts.. if he had leveled out shortly after lift-off, it would have been dead nuts on.. I also pointed out that the landing was probably a scale representation for how alot of the Raiders had to land after the raid as well, sorta funny, but sorta somber at the same time..
