Cool video, about 2 minutes long.

Edit: I watched it, posted this link, & tried to watch again, but got a "not found or not available" message. Hope it works later...

WOW! The guy, who built this is an excellent model maker. I can't even imagine all of the stability problems he had to solve.

They sell these as novelty kits for hobbyists. They have all kinds of things. Some of the kits you can buy are flying pizza boxes, lawn mowers, UFOs, blimps, parasails, hot air balloons, etc.

You can get practically any type of plane ever made, including all the military ones and "boat" planes that take off and land on water.

The military jets come in two basic kinds. Ducted fans have the propellers located inside tubes to simulate a jet engine. The others have actual miniature jet turbine engines. Those are extremely expensive and fly just like a real jet at a few hundred MPH. People who have 50K to drop on a hobby like this usually have all kinds of high tech accessories including high-res radio digital cameras in the cockpit, mini-plasma screen receivers on the control boards, and microprocessor/gyro controlled auto pilot in case of radio failure.
