    Those jets are really cool. I cant imaging how much money these guys have in these planes.

    I dabbled in rc planes years ago but never really got the hang of flying them. I had a cheap styrofoam one and ended up crashing it more than once but the final blow was a crash into a chain link fence which killed it.

    Amazing machines and flying ability!
    I flew RC for a few years and enjoyed building the airplanes, especially gliders but I prefer active hobbies and took up hang gliding so that I could fly instead of controlling from the ground.
    I wanted to build a 1/4 scale (or larger) with a radial engine but never did.
    A great hobby at any involvement level ($ to $$$$$$)

    As a young man, I wanted one so bad. After my first son was old enough to appreciate the experience, I bought one. Out to the school field we went...
    Fired it up and away it went...
    Straight up...
    Straight down...
    Crashed into the ground in a hundred pieces...
    Off the school field we went...
    End of experience...

    I guess I'm not a pilot...

    Never tried it again...
    I was heartbroken...

    LT that sounds like my experience. I had mine off the ground once, crash landed it. Put it back together and then literally rn it into a chain link fence while trying it get it airborne. It literally blew into a million pieces when it hit the fence. That was it for me and i went back to RC cars.

    4x4 RC buggy racing and whitewater RC boating gave me the thrills without the heartbreak of crashing scale airplanes. A dog did chomp and sink one of my boats once as well as a Great Dane mangled a car when he caught it. Something about the noise and motion triggers the chase-and-kill response.

    My dad used to build those things. I remember him bolting the motor to the kitchen table and testing the balance of his hand carved props. If the table didn't vibrate across the floor, it was good! Ha!

    However, I'd like to see a mid-air refueling with a couple those military jets. That would be something!

    Also, so live fire into drones or ground targets being strafed.
