Very nice models. What amazes me is lining up for the landing, that must be so much more difficult than when you're actually in the cockpit. On the other hand, you are not the one that gets all messed up when the landing fails, so there's not that anxiety, although of course you're risking losing a very expensive toy.

Very nice clip. Great skill by the pilots and its nice to hear the jetengine on these "toys".  ;D

Impressive landing by the last guy. Impressive to by both actually to be able to land the things without breaking them. Always hard to control a model when flying towards youself, since left becomes right and right becomes left. But these pilots have some serious skill. They have probably flown and owned a couple of hundred models through the years. :)

My BAE Hawk is half their size, much lighter and with a fan as engine. And i still managed to crash it, lol! Its all fixed now, but i have not flown it this year which is pretty surprising now when i think of it.  :P

Me thinks that there wouldn't be any room in a guy's life for both advanced flying models like this and women, marriage and houses. If they did get married it wouldn't last.

I guess its either golf or R/C planes, because i belive these guys dont have to worry about their economy.   ;)
