Thanks Ned! Beautiful model. It amazes me how far RC planes have come. I mean, ducted jet engines! Still the best one I've seen is the B-52, but the SR-71 is nice. Jim.

I cant imagine the number of years, decades perhaps, it took him to have the talent to build, take off , and land that thing. Must have been alot of teardrops shed by him and his close friends and the not so perfect flights.
that is the coolest thing Ive seen in a while.
how about a warthog next?
Brings back memorys of when we lived down the street from Glen L Martin airport in Baltimore and would watch the squadron that flew out of there practice dogfighting. They are so maneverable and can fly so slow it was unreal.
When I was in college there was a squadron which was 'visiting' Fort Drum... one of them was lining up on the highway I was driving on, and I distinctly recall looking up at one point, and sighting right along the cannon. That was so cool!
The wildest thing I remember living by that airport is when that f-117 crashed at the airshow they were having. A little to close for me!
I also watched the video of the b-52 and the b-29. Totaly awesome.
Very cool, Ned. Like Allen said, it takes a lot of experience to build, fly, and land one of those. Great stuff.
