endzorn, yeah I've seen that footage...It's definitely compelling for sure. Not detectable by radar but caught on infra red camera. There's no doubting the legitimacy of this footage. What they captured? Nobody knows. Definitely intriguing to say the least. My guess is swamp gas or the planet Venus. <<smirk>>
Seahawkfan80, I can fly that jet about 3,000 feet away before I lose radio control. I know, bananas, right? Unfortunately these big jets suck up the battery time in the snap of your fingers. 4 minutes is MAX. This flight was 4 minutes and I was close to exhausting the battery's capacity which could have ended in a very bad day for me. With EDF jets you typically get about 3 whole minutes of flight. That's why you invest in multiple batteries in this hobby.
Finally, Thunderbirds?? Never cared for that livery. I think my Arctic Aggressor livery is MUCH cooler looking if I do say so myself, even though I get a lot of folks dig the Thunderbirds livery.
I just was never one of them.
