Four Small Engines And A Surplus Of Skill

Mere words cannot do it justice, watch for yourself. Pretty sure there's more displacement in that power plant than my motorscooter -- and considerably less weight. Not to mention more X-1 and parachutage.

Wow.

It was cool, until the X1 released and fired its own engine.

Then it went to awesome.

The parachuting "pilots" put it over the top.

I'm gobsmacked.

On topic - Incredible. A four engine remote control cruise missile with bonus parasite baby missile.

Just amazing.

A B-29 doing an Immelmann? Well, now I've seen everything.

Thanks, RX.

F----n Awesome! I have always thought that flying models are cool; this goes wa-a-ay beyond that! Thanks for posting the link.

Yes, oh my yes. That was exquisite - a scale reproduction of Yeager's X-1 flights, including the roll that he got a bollocking for. I don't think Anderson ever took the '29 inverted, but I wouldn't put it past him... ;)

Thanks, Roberta - that's put a cheek-hurter grin on my face. That's made of awesome-coated awesome in piping hot awesome sauce.

When he did the low inverted pass, the crowd at Roseholme went ballistic.
