SHOCKING! It TOOK 6 YEARS to BUILD THIS Airbus A400M Atlas RC! The Result Is Totally Awesome!

More than 6 years of hard work were required to achieve this mammoth project, the A400M RC in 1/10 scale! The project started in 2004 with a core group of 6 people, with the financial backing of the CE Airbus Nantes. Never seen that required means in hardware, tool and manpower out of the ordinary. It truly is a work of art within the aeronautic engineering, many hours of work to see the success of their efforts more than excellent ensemble work, people like you make the world a wonderful place.

This cargo aircraft made โ€‹โ€‹of wood is exactly like a real Airbus freighter with a mass of 42 kg and a length of 4.2 m. It has 4 Hacker engines with 6 KW of power. It is remotely controlled by two operators with two remote radios. In addition, it is capable of taking off, landing, and a flight plan identical to a real Air Bus.

In addition we present you this video with this gorgeous RC plane. This RC model is a true marvel of technology! Congratulations to these fans! The music is sublime! Enjoy the show friends :)

  1. best RC i’v seen in a long time wow coolness

  2. Oh man that is so cool, wouldn’t mind waking up on Christmas day and finding that under the tree. The landing was perfect, not easy with such a short under carriage.

    I’m sure there is a good reason but my only question is why are there only two blades on each engine?

    Great job guys, as the caption says, that is totally awesome.

    Not shocking. An amazing feat of engineering and flying skills. The person posting the heading should firstly check the lexicon in order to find out the meaning of the word shocking. This is a beatiful piece of machinery

      I agree Cyril, this is real work of art! :) Thanks for your support and suggestion.

      Happy to hear that J, ASHOK KUMAR! :) Best regards.

  6. I thought this “Airbus” looked more like a Hercules aircraft. It’s just that I’ve flown IN an Airbus JET and a military Hercules c130 when I was in the Royal Australian Navy. Your plane truly is a work of art, there’s no denying that. You and your group are extremely talented and should be very proud of your work. I loved the video.

    Unbeliveable, as a person who has spent many years in the R/C hobby I know the time and energy that goes into a project like this, and the results are simply world class. I would not have the nerve to fly this aircraft. just watching you land it made my blood run cold in fear. Fantastic job, and great on you for having not only the nerve but the skill to fly it.

    1. Mac ( Post author )

      Agree with you Matt. They sure did an amazing job!

    Mindboggling guys! At a loss for words! What an achievement and the highlight is obviously the perfect flight.
    Fondest regards from South Africa.

    Amazing not ‘shocking’. Fabulous build, incredible bravery on the tx, I bet that was a relief when safely landed.

    1. Mac ( Post author )

      Absolutely Dick. This RC is just amazing :)

    Still using wrong type of propeller blades. Machines are too powerful, flight is not realistic. And… very bad landings. Please improve.

      Thanks for sharing your opinion with us.

  11. Joe Brooks

    Absolutely fantastic, all that time and effect that you all put in to this has been worth it. Great video, really wish I’d been there in person to see it.

    1. Mac ( Post author )

      Me too Joe. This RC plane looks great. Seeing it in person is surely a wonderful experience.

  12. lars

    great job and video :-)
    pity that you added Music to it, could not hear the Engine sound.

    1. Mac ( Post author )

      Glad you enjoyed the video Lars. Although it’s not ours, so we didn’t choose to add music to it. We also wish we could hear more of the engine sound :)

  13. Lito Vera

    what can i say? i am speechless! you guys did a great job. your art is beyond technology. you have skilled engineers and flight operators to come up with this awesome project.

    1. Mac ( Post author )

      That’s great Lito. I am glad you like this RC airplane so much. It is truly an amazing build. :)

  14. nick

    can u tell me the name of the music playing

    1. Mac ( Post author )

      Well Nick I only found out what’s the music in the beginning of the video. It is Sarabande by George Frideric Handel. Don’t know about the music that follows in the video. Cheers! :)

  15. Witt

    What is the estimated cost of a project like that?

    1. Mac ( Post author )

      It would be best to try contact the maker of this RC plane Witt. I’m sure he would give you the best answer.
