Quote from: DominicM on March 03, 2018, 12:23:23 pmSure it takes skill to fly a turbine RC jet...but it takes even more skill and experience to be able to deal with things when they go wrong. Here Mick Burrell's Hawker Hunter suffers an engine flameout part way through its demonstration flight at the Southern Model Show. Other RC pilots would panic...

Quote from: itsme on March 04, 2018, 08:21:59 amLove it. I know Mick, hes a good pilot, but come on...its like the things Dave Bishop used to say. "hes on fire!" (bit of smoke) "its an emergency!!" (dead engine)
Quote from: JohnP on March 04, 2018, 12:04:22 pmYes Paul - that's the video that Dom posted. I wonder why you don't see it!
Quote from: DominicM on March 05, 2018, 19:05:39 pmPersonally, I think that was a superlative bit of flying. I get that a simulated deadstick is part of the A cert. But achieving it with a turbine jet in front of a big crowd is a bit different to doing it with a Wot 4 down your local club.
Quote from: Alan Smithie on March 06, 2018, 09:50:19 amThe aeroplane had lots of height & speed, and a large landing area, so it was (as people said) a pretty routine dead-stick. If you wanted "heroic" flying then you might consider one of our F3D racing chaps who suffered an aileron servo failure at the start of lap 8 during a europa cup race meeting at Nordheim (probably 1994ish). Not only did he get the aeroplane down intact in a rather restricted field, but he finished the race with a personal best before he did...That's real flying.PDR
