My friend Mac Hodges campaigns his 20-foot, "100lb+" B-29 and Bell X-1 models to R/C events around the US. I build and fly aerobatic R/C planes, but nothing on this scale, lol. Mac and a small rotating crew maintain the bird between shows. Dan Stevens built the B-29 and this Bell X-1, both to scale, from scratch. He pilots the X-1. Big! Launch! X-1 dropped. Dan loops and rolls the X-1 in a glide, then at the last moment pulls the nose up and lights the rocket motor. It zooms a few hundred feet up and he lands it- a crowd pleaser! Then comes the aerobatics! This giant model has programed throttles for differential thrust (and a smoke system), and Mac puts it through a thorough routine. A nice inverted pass. Lots of other models at this event- about 3 miles from my home...
