Largest RC Model Planes
We wanted to put together a top 3 of the largest, most impressive RC Model Planes from around the world. We have added video links to watch them in action, we were very impressed with what we found from our research.
If you have any impressive model videos of large RC planes you think would impress our site visitors the make sure you email them over to us……if they are impressive they will get their own posts!!
The problem with designing and building a giant RC plane is making it actually aerodynamic and able to be easily controlled from the ground. The feats of engineering we have placed below are actually beyond impressive.
The Worlds Largest Concord RC Plane Model:
An enormous Concorde replica that flies surprisingly smoothly. The video is not in English but there are plenty of shots of the plane taking off, landing and cruising with ease. We loved the sound it made taking off as well. The video was taken from the Jet Power 2019 event in Genderkingen/Donauwörth, Germany.
Stats for the plane:
- Scale: 1/6 , large, impressive and scaled with a person makes you really appreciate the engineering greatness.
- Wingspan of over 4 meters, the length of two average adults
- Length of over 10 meters
- Height, to the tail tip of 1.85 meters
- Plane weight is just shy of 150kg on takeoff
- Turbines used: 4x JetCat P300 Pro
- Capacity for the fuel tanks: 4 x 6 Liters
- Uses pneumatic gears
- Powerbox Core Radio Transmitter
- PowerBox PBR-26D Receiver
- 18 HACKER TD2612S servos
- 30 liter air tank
This video is taking You Tube by storm with incredibly positive feedback in the comments section
Listen to the sound of the engines prior to take off!!! The speed of take off and cruising is also impressive. The colour and attention to detail of this F16 replica is truly amazing. The video is of its maiden flight….plenty of fun guaranteed for future flights/shows with this RC Model Plane. Great military RC Plane.
- 1:4 Scale Model of an F 16
- Generic Fly plane
- Four Boosters
- 160 Turbines
We were really impressed by the maneuverability shown, so definite respect for the guys flying this beast.
Top of our charts of 3 is this monster.
This Mig 25 Scale model is the largest in the world. It’s take off and overall flight stability throughout the video was sublime. The video credits someone called Clinton as piloting, so definite hats off to that guy! Just listen to the roar of those turbines as the plane takes off majestically!
The planes overall look and detail helped it gain a place in our top 3! Its Twin Turbine power really helping the plane carry itself effortlessly into the air.
Well that was our top 3. what do you guys think? Do you have any better recommendations, or think we should have placed our top 3 Largest RC Planes into a different order? Let us know in the comments, or send in your own lists to be published!!
