Thanks for bringing this up and allowing the fact that they are more of a "model" then out traditional "warbird" models we usually fly.

And once again FPV is a method of flying a aircraft (scale or model) and not a type of aircraft.
Sigh.
bradpaul, re-read my post you quoted carefully, especially the last part where I make it clear to anyone with a bit of imagination that all those types of "models" many of us fly are not
scale renditions of anything, and you should be able to see that I actually am agreeing with your point of view.
