whoa. that thing has to be large enough to warrant the need for some sorta license, I think.

Now fly it into a Manhattan office tower.

Classy... dick.

Regardless, I'll take one.

wow! That looks sweet! That would be good enough to scare the crap out of some backwood country, or Boston.

The only way that could be cooler, was if it was armed.

Um, wouldn't this be the worlds largest radio controlled vehicle?

He's going to cut his hand off if he keeps spinning the props in the direction of the already started ones.

That's why I qualified my statement in the headline by including the word hobby!

I wonder if they are NASCAR fans? All I saw were left turns :)

World's largest? The B-52 above looks larger.

I was just thinking the same thing.

What I want to see is the world's largest RC hobby helicopter. Add a video camera, and you'll have low-cost aerial shots!

Does it drop a suitcase nuke?

I'm kind of curious about why they put two-bladed propellers on it instead of 4-bladed ones. Increased thrust couldn't hurt, right?

I'd take it to Japan and fly it in Hiroshima.

That gay looking guy in the pink shirt walking by just seems out of place...

There is a huge jet powered concord somewhere, it was in Dayton Ohio a few years ago at the giant scale show, any info?

I think if you do that, your plane is target of slingshot.

The number of blades has nothing to do with increasing thrust. Its about designing efficency to work with the motor that is turning it. Generaly, adding blades requires reduching the diameter...good if you want ground clearance, but bad when you have a huge diameter cowl around the engine such as those. The blades are producing the vast majority of its thrust on the outer ends of the blades past the cowl. Efficent propeller design has to do with the blades length, width, airfoil design (propeller blades are basicaly spinning wings)blade width, and pitch.
