    Bet you’ve never seen RC models like these! Based on a real-life flying bicycle from the 1920s that actually flew across the English Channel, these unusual 13.7-foot aircraft are powered by King 95 engines and fly with 5-foot, 4-inch pilot figures behind the controls! Each model required close to 1,000 building hours, and they fly beautifully. Our thanks to RCScaleAirplanes for taking this video at the 50th Flying Jubilee in Bad Wörishofen in Bavaria.

    I came across these while searching for small homebuilt aircraft, pretty awesome! Maybe someday I'll build a full scale version...

    I thought these were pretty cool too. Don't know if I would get one myself, but I'd sure like to see one in person.
