Has 8 real turbines at about $1500 each!
Took over 2 years to build.
It has a wing span of about 22 feet.
Takes multiple pilots, as there are so many things to control.
Think they are nervous during the maiden flight?

Sadly, this model crashed during an "airshow". I got a link to video of the crash of this model from Ed Knox. Click here to see it. The same link also has footage of an actual airshow crash at Fairchild AFB where a B-52 crashed when the pilot lost control of the aircraft.
