Giant R/C A-10 Warthog

Giant R/C A-10 Warthog

We’ve seen some pretty damned impressive remote-controlled planes over the years, but this Mibo A-10 Thunderbolt II might be the best yet. The insanely detailed model has real jet engines, and even makes machine gun sounds and fires flares.

Huntly’s Paper Warplanes

Huntly’s Paper Warplanes

Wonderfully illustrated paper models of classic warplanes that not only look cool, they actually glide. The bi-planes are great, but we’re suckers for the bent-winged Chance Vought F4U-4 Corsair. To be honest, after all the work it takes to build one, we’d be afraid to toss ours.

Flite Test: Helicarrier R/C

Flite Test: Helicarrier R/C

Flite Test takes a look at a DIY eight-rotor R/C carrier, partly inspired by SHIELD’s flying fortress. It’s not the first (or the second) of it’s kind that we’ve seen, but it’s fun watching smaller planes try to land on it.

F-18 Carrier Ops

F-18 Carrier Ops

Awesome footage of a U.S. Navy pilot from Carrier Strike Group 8 and his F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. The plane takes off, practices aloft and lands back at the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Plane Crash Turned Engagement

Plane Crash Turned Engagement

Pilot Ryan Johnson will have no doubts that his wife-to-be stays cool under pressure after the bold stunt he pulled of tricking her into thinking that their plane was not responding before proposing.

F18 x Go Pro

F18 x Go Pro

You are going to want to go HD and full screen for the mesmerizing footage that captured inside the cockpit of an F18 jet while flying over the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Washington state.

FA-18 Flyover

FA-18 Flyover

An FA-18 Super Hornet flies over Jones Beach back in 2009. There’s debate over whether it broke the sound barrier. But it’s not a sonic boom that woke us – it’s the vapor cone left when it kicks into gear.

Jet-Powered R/C Plane

Jet-Powered R/C Plane

This turbine powered R/C plane sounds more like an F-16 than a toy, reaching top speeds over 360mph. We have no idea how you can fly and land this thing remotely without crashing it.

E-volo Multicopter

E-volo Multicopter

Move over, Orville and Wilbur: Thomas Senkel of E-volo recently made the world’s first manned multicopter flight with their AR.Drone-like flyer. The gently hovering flight lasted 1:30. (Thanks Stro!)
