    Giant Scale R/C Air Racing: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!

    From full out air racing to mid-air and landing mishaps, this video presents a look at Giant Scale Radio Control Air Racing.  These planes are BIG and can weigh up to thirty pounds and have a wing span over eight feet.  The cost to built these monsters can range from five to fifteen thousand dollars!  Just like their full scale counterparts, these teams and pilots are dedicated to winning.  The action in the air is very tense with speeds approaching 150 mph and just a few feet from the ground.  The G forces on the scale planes are so high that structural failures occur.  A 30 pound plane can weigh near a 1,000 pounds in the turn!  These are experienced pilots, but things do go wrong.  From take off to landing, these planes require the utmost in skill to win.
