Hmmmm. If anyone ever wondered just how "they" ever got the idea of producing (lethal or not) drones...?! :ok:

Much Appreciation to the LMA guys much admiration for their courage...... My club had an unspoken rule of "no cameras" as it was a sure fire guarantee that the prime focus in both senses of the word would end up going home in one or more black plastic coffins...... Some of our guys were even known to de-fuel, strip down, pack up and head home if there was a suspicion of a camera, especially at a first flight of a new model.

The LMA guys I feel also capture the spirit of flying the vintage models, much better than most as their power to weight ratio can be more realistic than at the "club" scale of model. most of the normal weekend fliers' models end up being grossly overpowered simply due to the relative power output and very high speed of the smaller model engines.

Much kudos to the folks building and flying these fabulous machines. It's a pity they can't fly them in "scale air"!

Need to work on the sound effects. I was waiting for the Vulcan 'Howl'. Muchly impressed though.

A notable exception was the engine at 7:30, which sounded very realistic at idle.

Anyone know what model engine was fitted?

Oh good lord. Some of them are almost as big as a 152! They're almost all more sophisticated than one. I'd be they cost more too!

Question for those who know: How do you land such a thing?

That aircraft is featured in the R/C forums and this seems to be the engine - a Moki 150 radial. Nice bit of engineering.

Thanks 4mastacker. :ok:

First decent search result:

Moki 150 radial (http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/rc-warbirds-warplanes-200/9851913-moki-150-radial.html)

...the 5 cylinder Moki 150cc radial engine (roughly $3200 USD).
