I Watched it today.

The 50 yard limit, was probably because all the other onboard electronics noise, and the planes metal skin. Plus a small margin for error. Who knows, maybe they just thought that was the limit. Thinking it was just a toy radio. Their dummys cost more than the plane,

I thought with the 2.4 antenna's it is supposed to stay bent somewhat, the guy holding the controller made a point for the pilot to remind him to put the antenna straight. Just something I mentally took note of.

It was an interesting show but I also thought it should have had a full capacity, passengers and cargo. Since this was in Mexico, they probably could have used death row inmates and sex offenders to fill er up! Ask for volunteers, if they survive they go free!

""just proves that if you wanna crash, better get a Futaba""
Initially the show producers thought of using a Spek 18 ch,

but when they were quoted of needing 31,270 satellites receivers to make it work the producers said the hell with that

sorry, could not help it

Im not sure exactly what you mean by that, but the from what I observed, even a well placed 6200 with 1 external on top could have possibly done better.

I would think - if you are going to crash, don't come in and do a botch up/hard landing - come in at a 30deg angle/full speed and burry the darn thing

Now thats is really funny! You ever seen how many they use in an RC turbine plank model? and they say more is even better.

You are right, I was harsh, the 727 would only need about 10,000 spek satellites...

They had said they wanted an angle that was enough to deform and kill the airframe but not so steep to end up with a scorched hole because the data was being collected and recorded locally, not transmitted. So, had it been a fireball or completely obliterated the data would be lost. That was crazy how thw turbine just kept on going. I was also surprised they carried so much fuel that a fireball was even possible.

I have had multiple turbine jets up to 15k. I rarely had a drop on a 7000 at barely a speck in the sky.......You ever had a turbine, let alone flown one......

No, this needs to stay on topic as its a worthy topic for us r/c'ers.

Maybe someone with inside knowledge(or at least a better educated guess) can chime in.....

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

I bet my old 72mhz Futaba 8U would have worked at least a mile away. It so powerful if I'm listing to the radio, stereo and turn it on my radio go's silent, knocks it socks off.
