    Hey there. I am wondering if this works for real planes because I now work for Delta as a piolet. Last time I tried to fly a comercial jet I crashed and probably killed some people but I bet they are fine. I am in my early 80's and need your help

    i think when it comes to a motor you can use any, for example i used a 25000rpm motor and it was fast as hell

    How much would it cost and is it durable for a first time flyer. Also could it hold a go pro to capture it on film. One more thing, how much range does the remote have?
