Reminds me of the Italian dude who locked himself in his garage fow 12 years and made that full working down to the gearstick and valves scale replica of the Ferrari proto le mans car.

Do these guys have jobs and lives outside this? I can't imagine getting that done as a full time job in less than a year.

If there's grass on the field, you can play.  ;)

While I totally appreciate what, I do not for the life of me understand why.

Video is working now.

Insane craftsmanship . Pretty crazy to let the bird fly too.

How long time did he use?

and where did he get those mini LCD screens?

And most importantly why is that plane blocking of the front intakes on take off? i have never seen that before. it takes the air from the top of the fuselage/wing area instead. Does it give shorter take offs?

I guess that and the fact the original YAK-130 is also intended as a light attack plane operating from unpaved roads.

The Mig29 also has that feature....it helps prevent picking up debris on take off from Russian airfield.

It's so stable in flight, doesn't fly like a model......I too would be reluctant to fly it after putting in all that work to build it, but I guess he feels there would be no point in not flying it!

Interested to know if it is 'true' scale in so far as the flying surfaces are concerned.

If it is, it may be the reason why this particular aircraft and the 1:4 scale was chosen.

I had a semi scale spitfire years ago that needed a larger tailplane area to fly properly and rotor winged models are very different to full size.
This one seems to fly great and with the attention to detail obviously extending to pre flight tests and flight planning.
I see no reason at all not to fly it.

When I was a modelling lad there was a lot of talk about 'penetration', which, in my innoscence, I took to mean the ability of a model to withstand buffeting and destabilising cross-winds, etc. The conclusion was that a larger model with greater mass and probably higher wing-loadings would fare better. This lovely model is 1/4 scale, and obviously fairly hefty, hence the more realistic behaviour. If I'd seen this making a low, high speed pass over our flying field I would probably thought it was the rreal thing!

Ah....ok, makes sense! Jeeze, there is a spectacular world of large scale RC precision modeling that I wasn't even aware of....love the miniature turbine technology also....thanks for that!
