    i also like how it has a camera on the tail and on the nose wheel so you can see more than just out the cockpit

    Cool stuff - it's called virtual reality - done w/ a super wide angle lens and QuickTime VR software to put all the pix together.

    When you make your first push button flight, let me know, Alan. I want to be on the ground w/ my camcorder running. :lol:

    in all honesty thats the way most of em are flown now a days... the pilot is there to just monitor everything and make sure nothing goes wrong....

    he puts the power to it, takes it, pulls the gear, pushes some buttons and the plane will climb out on a specific path/angle/speed and continue on a set course already programmed in to the plane.

    I'm sure you're right Alan. You know that industry far better than I do.

    Reminds me of the old joke about the roadside mechanic that charged $100.10 for turning the screw that started the car. Why so much for turning one screw? 10 cents for turning the screw and $100 for knowing which screw to turn. :lol:
