Luke Metcalf, assisted by his Father Paul, flying this in true scale style at the BMFA Power Nationals 2017. Lightning by name and he flies it like Lightning. I had trouble keeping up with my camcorder. Full after burners and tight turns. TERRIFIC !

Some details of this amazing model.
Built by Trond Hammerstad from Norway from the Airworld Modellbau kit. 9 litres of fuel onboard in two 4.5 litre tanks.
Scale: 1/5
Span: 176 cm
Length: 284 cm
Engine: B300F turbine (320N thrust)

Crazy fast 200mph+ pulse jet control line action from the BMFA Power Nationals. I can't comprehend how you control the pitch on these models while they are travelling at these speeds while keeping balance. Compelling to watch !

That's a shame, I always try to get over to see a bit of flying on the f3a line but didn't make it this year.

Always great to see control line racing at the 'Nats'. I don't get to see it anywhere else.

Steve Carr flying his Pilot-RC 55% Yak-54. Steve's got a real hang of this model now. Not a lot he can't do with it.  Filmed in UltraHD / 4K !
