An interesting video of a model B-29 and Bell X1 Rocket plane.
Certainly this was on expensive project both in money and time
spent. The “pilot” does a pretty good job but we’ve never heard
of a B-29 or any of its variants ever doing outside loops before.

And for my hamsters and Hamsterettes, 2 trivia questions. Amateur
radio operators are often involved with RC models as well.
In what amateur band do they have these somewhat exclusive privileges?
(This, by the way, gives the amateur radio RC flier a distinct safety
advantage in that it virtually eliminates frequency conflicts)
Also, since identification can’t be carried out as in normal amateur radio
practice what is the ID requirement here?
