Due to buget cuts, RAF gets cheaper C17s

Look - this is a real bone question from someone who knows nothing about radio-controlled planes but I have to ask:

Is that a proper flying model aircraft do-dah? (I mean, real jet engines or are they props in disguise?)

You make it sound like a bad thing rather than a bonus spin-off!!!

The build was featured on one of the Discovery channels.
Didn't show it taking off, only taxiing. They'd only just finished building it so it still needed some tweaking; but yes, real jet engines, avtur etc.

Want one of those. :)

Could you put someone inside it???? Not that i'd be willing to try it!!!! Just wondering!

It was certainly big enough for someone to lie down inside, not sure about sitting up.

It needed inspections from the CAA at various stages of the build, just like a home-built light aircraft - basically 'cos it is!
