The thing that makes me chuckle about these models is that if if weighs more than 22Kg ya have to get the Civil Aviation Authority involved because it then counts as a light aircraft here in england :D

That's awesome. Anyone else been to Ida Grove, IA? A guy built basically a mini-airport for RC planes. They do WWII reenactments and everything.
