    Undoubtedly a work of flying art and a very well setup reproduction of this 1930s airliner. Worth watching the engine start sequence alone ! Flown by Joachim Damrath, this Handley Page 42 oozes style and elegance as it cruises around the sky at the Airliner Treffen Show. At 1/10th scale the Wing span / wingspan is 3.96 metres and length is 2.8 metres. A fantastic and unique flying aircraft of a bygone era of airliner passenger travel.

  2. Fantastic RC build!
    What a pleasure to hear and watch without any musical background...
    except the music of four tuned, gas powered engines!
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very cool. But really glad I wasn’t onboard for that landing! Ouch.

    Absence of music was more by luck I think. This was on the practice day. On the public days the commentator insisted on playing 80s music. I have no idea why.

    Yes...hard landing. Got away with it. Well engineered landing gear obviously!
