    Wow - an Sr-71 Blackbird ducted fan jet RC model! It must have been 10' - 12' long. I was just waiting for it to crash on landing, but it didn't. I used to fly RC in the '80's, but can't imagine what it would cost today to get a twin engine ducted fan jet up in the air. If I flew it and landed without damage, that's the last time I would fly it... Ron

    very nice. I used to fly free-flight and the RC guys used to fly on the field as well. .. This brings it to a whole new level.

    They fly something like that here at Markham Park. I know its a jet, I don't know if it has one or two engines though. Really is cool to see in person, it sounds like the real thing.
