This is amazing, great find and thanks for posting. Does make me miss the outdoors even more though so cannot wait to be back at the airport when this all ends.

I was sure he was going to stuff the landing, but he didn’t. I’d love to have a go.

These RC models are becoming so large I wonder do they actually have to notify ATC

Wonderful! I do wonder why you’d go to all that trouble and then not stick some windows on! Truly magnificent though

Very impressive. Onboard cameras provide some cracking views.

I wondered exactly that when I watched it, I suspect so yes. Great find and amazing project, thanks for sharing!

Amazing! I too was skeptical he could successfully land this thing: KUDOS to him.

Regarding sound: I believe it's REAL sound (not dubbed). The "engines" are 4 x real JetCat P300 Pro turbines after all:
