    Not train related but very impressive. This video is of the maiden flight which went off without a hitch. Keep in mind this thing cost about $12,000. The plane didn't make it through the second flight. It crashed during the flight. The video is about 9 minutes long. Not recommended for you dial-up guys.

    I can't even imagine how hard your heart would be pounding being the "pilot" on that first flight. All that time and work - and once it's airborne - you've got to land it!

    Looks like the wind caught it.

    I agree that these are really awesome models, but I can't imagine them being much fun to fly after just a few trips to the airfield. It's not like there's just a whole lot you can do with them.

    Yeah, it's almost like having an invisible layout:D

    beautiful models though.

    Looks like he lost control of it to me. Flame out? Battery disconnect? Radio Failure? Hard to tell

    Wow. What an impressive model. Those turbine engines sound just like their full size counterparts. Too bad it crashed. Especially at $12,000.:cry:
