That's impressive. I've seen still photos of it on one of my photography forums but that's the first video of it. Doesn't need a lot of runway to take off based on the video. I'll have to post some photos from Jet event I just attended once I get the albums on line.

Gorgeous 1:5 scale Hawker Fury, scratch built (from a Chris Golds plan), complete with sound system to add that scale perfection.

Nice. Sure has a big open area to fly in. Larger than any of the club fields in my area.

Middle Wallop is the largest grass airfield in Europe. Only 50 members in the club. I'm very fortunate to be one.

Never seen one of these before. Apparently a discontinued ASM kit. Converted to electric by its owner and well done because it flies so well. 80 inch wingspan and 20 lbs in weight so it's fairly bit even for a twin.

Awesome electric ducted fan replica of the 1940's Miles M.52 supersonic jet. Scratch built from only 3 views of the original full size aircraft. Powered by a 90mm Wemotec fan on 6S5000 lipo battery pack.
