Seen it before ::) It's a very impressive model!!! Although i get the feeling that those who are testing it might not be the builders of it, they seem a bit agressive with it to me :-\ That's the feeling i'm getting anyway!

If you watch the vid and then run through some of the other vids from the same user, you'll see several featuring loads of big r/c tugs, all being used very aggressively - racing, basically - almost colliding with r/c sailing yachts and nearly swamping a smaller tug. Not nice watching. >:(

I seem to remember seeing some kind of cargo ship almost on the plane ::), or was that a Japanese crowd?

Hi gents, I suspect that the first tug is a model of the 'Nang Chau', think that's the right spelling, and may have been off a free plan in MB or MMI some years ago. The second tug is a 'Typhoon'. The only version of this tug i've seen is 'Poll's' and he uses it for towing and will be at Balne this coming w/end with it but there may well be more around.
Scroll down on this link and there is a 'Typhoon'.
