149 Kg Concorde RC Model - Simply Amazing!

Submitted
I hope this isn’t inappropriate for this forum but I can’t think of an audience more likely to be inclined to appreciate it. Just when you think you’ve seen it all... (youtube.com) More...

Yes, the video is one-of-a-kind. Quite an investment to build this huge RC model. Story says it uses 4x JetCat P300 Turbines for propulsion. At a list price of 5000 Euro per engine, that's 20000 Euro material cost merely for the engines. Admire the working droop nose and retractable gear on this Concorde model.

Fortunately, a DC10 didn’t take off ahead of it

Not sure why they chose to put random words across where the windows would have been. Why? Spoils the look somewhat.

Looking closer I think the words suggest the windows and other details will be added later, so fair enough. Very impressive either way.

I marvel at the patience to build an aircraft like this! I am sure it was a labor of love to complete it and see it fly!!

I agree with Lee . Why must people always get their noses bent out of shape , when someone creates such a marvel .
Then they use a cheap put down , like 'what a waste of money " You must be with-out and cheap .

The term “stupid money” isn’t a put down. It’s used in a manner more akin to “stupefying”.

Car guys will talk about the “stupid money” they or other people spend on a car or a part.

maybe your right , and i stand corrected . but it still sounds to me ,like a put down . But i do appreciate your insight .

I would guess the builder doesn’t have any money worries,so it’s just an expensive hobby like boars, airplanes, cars, and expensive women.😀

I had a lot more fun watching this than I would a guy taking a woman out on a lavish date.
