    The shipping cost for those models, especially the Hindenburg, must be interesting!

    I have seen RC Planes with up to 96" wingspans simple secured to rooftop carriers for transport. They are made for flight and the rigors of wind, WHY NOT?
    I have seen RC's with longer wing spans with reducible "width" wings (removable outboard sections) that could also be car-top transported so long as they are not "oversize" for road legal transport.

    There's nothing like seeing a Dodge Caravan with a B-29 riding piggyback on the Interstate! Lots of rubbernecking going on there!

    So, like the shuttle transport 747, is the van carrying the B-29 or is the B-29 transporting the van?

    The B-29 was atop the minivan. The other way around would have damaged the RC Plane me thinks.

    Actually, the Caravan carrying the B-29 was spotted in PENNSYLVANIA about 5 years ago. Might have been an AMISH thing I suppose. LOL

    But, yes, EVERYTHING is BIGGER in TEXAS. I thought you knew that, Ahab. Are we going to have to send you back to school.....again?

    When I was flying R/C , I would rent a u-haul truck whenever I took the c-130 to fly (it had a 132" wingspan). I could fit it in a Town & Country, but I usually broke something....it was just to big.

    Its amazing where R/C aircraft are now.....the ARF and RTF electrics make the building process almost non-existent. Though, the smell of nitro exhaust .....nothing like it (except maybe diesel exhaust out of an NHC-250....lol).
