Maiden Flight of a Model B-52

Actually has 8 "real turbine engines" which cost $1500 each!

It took over 2 years to build. It has a wing span of about 22 feet and takes multiple pilots, as there are so many things to control.

Check out the movie link below to witness it's maiden flight...

That's really cool.

I wasn't hoping, but kind of expecting there to be either a 22ft wide fireball, or else a strange 22ft wide entanglement of balsa wood and metal uncontrollably hurtling out of control somewhere in that clip.

I give that landing far more respect than landing the real thing. No instrument panel or computer helping you, just gut feel and nerves of steel. :)

Kinda dissappointed. No hammerheads, no snap rolls, not even an inverted flat spin. This video kind of makes me miss this hobby but my savings account doesn't miss it at all. Althought i think i now have more wrapped up in the reeftank hobby. I guess i don't really want to figure it out either way :lol:
