I have been amazed at some projects you guys have shown us with your models of PT Boats and full blown diaramas of bases. I came across the following video and was floored by the complexity of this model. Dan Stevens and Mark Hodges collaborated on a B29 Bomber powered by 4 chainsaw motors. Add to that a model of an X1 rocket that drops and performs when the B29 reaches altitude. Its very impressive.

That was impressive Gary, thanks. The pilots have some mad piloting skills. The X-1 surprised me, thought it would just land.

Hello everyone_

I have seen this video a few months ago and yes it is awesome. It must have taken a hell of a lot of engineering to construct that thing and the guy is one one heck of a an R/C pilot.

I can't even imagine building that thing. I remember my old controline paper and balsa jobs; a brick on a string, but this thing is in a whole other league.

I was also informed by a buddy in my ship model club that he saw another video where this thing did a crash and burn. I'll take my R/C PT's any day.
