    Amazing indoor flight by Martin Müller

    This was shown at the indoor air show at Leipzig a couple of years ago.

    Amazing indoor flight by Martin Müller

    That was awesome. A310 airframes aren't found too often anymore outside of freight operations. That was truly a gem.

    For a model, even more so.

    Well, it has a small helium bladder inside the fuselage.

    That is very cool, so the 285g weight is including the filled bladder? Forgive me if this info was late in the video, I only watched about half.

    That's a good question -- I honestly do not know the answer to that question. That wasn't in the clip, I read it on a thread discussing this elsewhere.

    Apparently the AUW (helium) is 285g and AUW (air) is 360g

    Cool vid, I bet the RC pilot was wetting himself in such a relatively confined place, one wrong move or calculation and it would have been ruined.

    EDIT: also there were two 7g Outrunner BL-Motors with 6" props inside the turbine housings.

    I thought he was going to go out the door and back in at one point. Impressive.
