There are Remote Control Planes, then there’s these Remote Control Planes

Its one thing to have a remote control plane, one of those tiny little annoying things that sounds like a lawnmower crossed with a washing machine and another thing to have one of these bad-boys. These Jet powered beasts some times travel in excess of 300mph! They’re so well built they can do stunts even the full sized aircraft their based on can’t manage. We found enough clips to make our own RC Air Force, we don’t own any of these planes but it’s always fun to make believe.


This is a 1:4 Scale model of a US F-16 Fighter, as you can see it goes like stink and looks pretty damned cool too!

Eurofighter Typhoon

This is a 1/5 scale model of a Eurofighter, The natural shape of the Eurofighter is unstable so to keep this bird in the air requires incredible control! I’m not sure how I’d feel taking off and landing on such an unstable surface either!

SR-71 Blackbird

Our model air-force has two fighter’s in it so lets do some Recon. This may be only a 1:7 scale model of the Legendary Spy Plane but it’s still absolutely massive!

B-52 Stratofortress

Say what you want about the way the B-52 looks, this model is massive. It’s time for our RC Airforce to drop some bombs on them commies below!

Avro Vulcan

OK, so there are no Vulcans in service anymore and haven’t been for the better part of 20 years the Avro Vulcan is a beautiful looking aircraft so i’m adding it to the Model RC Airforce just ‘cos OK.

C-17 Globemaster

This thing is huge, and forms the logistical portion of our RC Airforce. This thing is taller than a man and a 264lbs (nearly 19st) weighs more than one too! Its pretty cool though.
