Hmm I don't think it's enough to just speed it up 6x. Depends on a lot more factors than that, unless the planes are flying in a closed system with no air, atmosphere, or anything to create even the slightest bit of resistance.

Never mind, I think it makes sense to speed it up like that. Pretty cool nonetheless!

Actually, the county I live in is wierd. We have projects, average housing, and multi million dollar mansions on the same road. Kyle Boller of our Ravens lived up the road from me and so did Matt Stover. But I live in the "average" housing. And down a bit from the projects is the country club.

But you are lucky you live where you live. Canada sure does sound good sometimes. Great place to live and raise your family it seems. Anyplace where you dont need weapons for reassurance sounds like a good place to me.
No no please don't get me wrong, I have been to America many times and it is a spectacular place. No place is perfect. Plus, the fact that America is 10x larger population wise is an added factor too.

I mean, over here, if you step outside the city, you will barely see anyone.

Check this out:



This just gives you an idea of our population density.

Canada is an amazing place, and I would highly recommend you guys come up here sometime. A lot of natural beauty here.

I just got a little shocked from your posts, makes it sound like a really rough place. My sincerest apologies!

While we are on the topic of jets

While it doesn't go Mach 17, I think it's pretty cool. Kinda like the T-28, but in the jet age.



Exceed RC 50MM 2.4Ghz T-45 Trainer Brushless EDF Jet Review (11 min 10 sec)


Another little 50mm edf
My F-86 is really easy to fly, and I expect this T-45 to be even easier.

Haha Astro no problems man, just making a joke. It may not be as bad as we make it sound, but then again it can be.

Ive been to canada for all of about an hour haha. Spent some time in toronto? We were staying in Niagra and drove across that bridge. It was pretty cool when we got to the midway point on that bridge and were in two differnent countries at once.

Niagra is beautiful and incredible. I was a little young to really appreciate it but I wouldnt mind going back.

And woah, there is a London in Canada?!

But what you said about air density and resistence does make sense. In no way is that video scientific by any stretch obviously but it does put it into perspective in a way...

Mac, just watched your video of you doing some fly-bys with the big bird! How come ya didnt tell me!

Ridge, that thing does look like the grand-daughter, or son? whatever lol, of the t28. I like how NP calls it a trainer just like they called the cessna me and mac fly a trainer lol.

Awesome! I'm always really excited to come to the states, there are some unbelievable places there. I really hope to visit silicon valley sometime too - maybe even work there in the future.

Anyhow, ya there is a London lol. I actually think there are two in Canada, but no sure. Some really hysterical names here. There's a city called "Happy Valley Goose Bay" Never a dull moment up here Niagara is great, but you gotta go deeper in than that. Actually, along the east and west coast it's a lot nicer. Plus the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. And who can forget the true great white north! I wanna go wayyy up north someday. Maybe I can set the record for flying the Champ in the coldest weather lol

Hey I never saw Mac's video! I want to see it too! Where did you see it?

Yea, probably not a good first plane, good edf trainer tho. Doesn't have steerable nose wheel, but I will fix that problem.

I really like that Skytrainer. I would love to have one. Need a nice smooth runway tho, or floats


+1 Mac's video

Nice video mac, really liked the landing at the end!

Very cool video editing too, you're a pro!

BTW, was that your neighbor in some shots? The guy with the Hellcat and addiction to high flying?

Awesome video man, great flying.
That thing looks pretty dang fast and lots of power.

Takes right off and climbs like a rocket.... I don't think it would have any problem getting "unstuck" from the water..
