Fantastic RC Journey: Watch over a week with a cuppa

Great to follow one man's drama, enthusiasm and modelling skills as he creates a magnificent ANZ B787.

You forgot his latest one showing the full onboard POV raw footage taken from the tail camera without any music.

Yeah! hadn't seen it.
Best by far... knowing what you know, there's real tension in the footage.

I'm just amazed the RC guys stay airborne in scale airliners.
Think what a RW pilot has at his disposal in terms of instrumentation and flight aids.
The stick guy on the ground? Just what he can see.

modern r/c radios have all sorts of in-flight telemetry ... not that I know if he was using that, and I suspect not.

I went looking, and was amazed at what's available in telemetry.
I guess there's a crossover where the RC hobby plane becomes an RPV...

But this guy didn't have too much in the way of instrument warning, he simply stalled the starboard wing.
There's a video of a B52 hot dog doing something similar

... easy enough to do if you're on the envelope.

To be honest, when I've flown R/C I've been so focused on the model there isn't time to look at the screen. The most telemetry I have had is battery voltage, RPM and cylinder temperature; since you can't read the screen you set vibrate & tone on; except it was hard to learn which was which, so you'd need to look down at the screen and take your eyes off the model, and then ... well, you get the picture. I never did 'jive' with the telemetry!

I think I recall seeing that B52 video before.

Some planes don't like to be banked over a certain angle; I got surprised myself doing a steep turn in a small aircraft before and once it got over about 50 deg or so it just tucked in and wanted to go all the way; I had plenty of speed, plenty of power and a good altitude, but it really caught me by surprise and got to close to 75 deg bank before I wrenched it back! I made a mental note not to do that again! :)

Ramy RC has done a 13 minute update talk about his radio control replica of the Air New Zealand Dreamliner 787 with his thoughts on the crash of his Boeing 787 RC airplane.
