This story is biggest bunch BS hype I have seen in a long time!
I've been designing and building RC aircraft for years and can tell you first hand the planes this guy was going to use are in no way capable doing
any thing near what they are saying.
First off one was a F-4 Phantom, the other was a F-86 Sabre, with a 44 to 64" wing span. Electric or jet fan no matter these planes have around five
minutes or less flight time and almost no payload capability, now if you start to put cameras and or FPV electronics on these things, wing loading
goes up and performance goes down.
In order to carry out this plot he would have had to have much more than these components such as explosives,detonator, and even more battery power.
Now his plane has way too much wing loading to even take off on it's own, so now he needs to rocket assist it or bungee cord.
Lets say he managed all this, got the thing in the air now he has very little range, so he is within a mile of his target and lets say he actually hit
something. The damage would be more like fireworks hitting such hard targets.
What a waste of such an expensive plane!
What a joke how the media is hyping this story as if there is some real danger from RC aircraft. Disgusting really
