Super Fast Plane

For real though, how can you even control something going to fast? Like, I get it when you’re watching it form the first person point of view, and you have something giant, and you’re a few hundred or thousand feet above the ground. But a little R/C plane. Damn, some people are just skilled.

Carrier Landing

They tout this as landing an R/C plane on a moving R/C Airfract Carrier.  It’s half true.  They do land an R/C plane on a carrier, but it’s an R/C quad-copter that looks like a plane.  It’s cheating.  That’s all I’ll say about that.

Now though, watch the above, and the below to see some of the detail added to this carrier.

Towards the end they show the command control module for the Carrier.  It definitely has it’s fair share of buttons and knobs.  I’m sure it was a nightmare to put together and figure out.  It probably requires a few permits to actually use.  And, yes it’s based off of the USS Kitty Hawk.

Here’s a behind the scenes video of how they built this model:
