I used to have one and I never did make a clean landing with it. And finally got the best of it.

Seeing this beast in person is even better! Absolutely incredible what this guy can do with it. It has 4 80cc Zenoah gasoline engines. It has 16 batteries, 20 servos, and 7 receivers counting the batteries and receivers operating the smoke units and parachute and X-1 drop. This airplane is not a kit. It was designed and built from original B-29 plans.

The guy who owns it is Mac Hodges and he has a Hobby Shop in Americus Georgia with a huge flying field with it. He goes all over the country flying this in demos. Me and my son have been to his place twice to events to see it fly as well as fly our own planes. Mac has a full size J-3 Piper Cub and takes people flying from the shop. Both me and my son have flown with him.

Here is a pic of me next to the plane last summer. and one of my planes too. We are going down again at the end of April! can't wait!
