    This is a cool one of a Cessna Citation 525. Do you RC? Show us your working model plane! Or cool RC jet vids.

    Very realistic model. You must hear the sound!



    I would hate crashing one of those models. They must be really expensive.

    A turboprop Pilatus? Would love to see the reduction/transmission system. That's the first time I've seen such a contraption in remote control aircraft. Great find HTMO. Thanks for posting!

    How about this one.



    The scale scene is pretty active in Europe and especially in Germany.

    And this is the craziest of all, a formation of 3 large RC F-104 G



    Lousy formation but great sound

    You know it's big when your fuel tanks are a pair of 2-litre soda bottles! Took some scale liberties on those Falcon struts, but when flying from a grass field, best to have additional clearance. Great find Ron!

    Even the KIWIs from down under are crazy for RC jets.

    And my all time favorite plane, the F-104 Starfighter. Looks like the RC model is as dificult to fly as its big brother. Good old days, when flying was still dangerous and sex was safe. But today .......

    Notice the approach angle on the F104 when landing. With those short, stubby wings it must be a handful to fly! I'd bet a gallon of kerosene he's using a 3-axis gyro. Still, the pilot pulls off an excellent inverted low-pass. All very cool, but maybe best to stick to private & personal jets (to keep with JF's topic) :)

    It not a Jet but jet powered and for sure civil. Specially for You Carl, a jet powered helicopter.

    One more. A fast Jet, civil, big, noisy and expensive. Well built and even more, well flown !!!



    I have filled several flight logbooks in my life but I could never bring one of those RC Jets safely down.

    WOW, the Concord's can even actuate the cockpit/nose cones. Really impressive to see TWO of these in the air, or 8 turbines depending how you measure. Wonder what the fuel bill was for that flight? ;)
