Video of possibly one of the world's largest electric RC planes recently flying


We've just uploaded some video from UK designer Tony Nijhuis. He test flies his latest project, a Boeing B-50. Electric powered, 19ft span and 80lbs, we believe it may be the biggest to date. Take a look, impressive stuff.

Isn't there or there was but it crashed a 25 foot span B29? In addition there was the 24' Pink Foamie. I think unfortunately 18feet is not quite the world's biggest.

.. define "biggest" - as stated, several models with larger wingspan, and/or higher weight, have been flown..

I think what the OP meant is that this "May be" the largest "Electric" RC plane.

Better title now.

This guy may be going for the biggest/heaviest scale electric when it flies.
