This is what I call a super model plane!
Unbelievable . . . . !!!!!

Actually has 8 "real turbines" at about $1500 each!  Took over 2 years to build.  It has a wing span of about 22 feet.  Takes multiple pilots, as there are so many things to control.  Think they were nervous during the maiden flight?  Unbelievable that someone would make this - all real turbines!  
 
Check out the movie link below to see the first flight.

this is a really amazing feat.  I am impressed by what they built!   Maybe version 2 can have retractable landing gear...

I would love to know what they used for the jet engines!
