I don't know if this is really the largest yet flown, as I have seen others very big. If you count military aircraft, obviously this is not. I do also love the large Jet RCs that I see out there. Anyway this thing is a beast, and it is pretty scary to see this guy hand start each engine with the other right next to his arm and leg, ready to remove some body part. I wonder what the top speed - range for this craft would be? Have RC planes (of this kind, I suppose still a hobby craft) crossed the English Channel?
