Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. i may get branded a spotter for this one but I thought it impressive for a radio control plane.

    F-14 with real jet engines 8O

    Link removed due it containing a virus 8O
  2. Where is the picture? Spotter.
  3. Click the link?.....................trigger! :D
  4. I have done.....twice now.....still no picture. Are you in JACIG or something?
  5. That is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen! I know nothing about this aeromodelling thing, but I am most impressed. How on earth do you land a thing like that without wrecking it? I fully expected to see a parachute recovery.
  6. That fantastic, i wonder what speed it gets up and how much flight time they have.

    Would be great for torturing there hamsters in.

    I did hear once of a group of brits who built a 4 engine Lancaster bomber and it cost about 30,ooo quid, and they smashed on landing on the maiden flight.

    But wouldnt mind having a go with that one
  7. as opposed to the other kind of B-52?
  8. Corect BB, as opposed to the other remote controlled B-52s with 4 engines made to look like 8! Or even the ones with 2 engines and empty pods being on the other stations.

    I wonder why BB didn't pick up on sabres "4 engined Lancaster" post. Perhaps there are other Lancaster variants I am unaware of, or maybe not! :wink:
  9. Maybe because he knew you would bite? :D
  10. So thats a bite?, OK, but at least it was nice to be able to clear up someones ignorance of the powerplants of various r/c models. :wink:

    And they aren't that difficult to land power on, its when you run out of fuel the fun starts. :?
