Twin turbine RC B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber

The CARF Models B-2 flies at Weston Park International Model Show for the first time. On take off the B-2 inadvertently heads to the right and just gets into the air by virtue of a fortuitous bump in the grass strip. Quick reactions from the pilot on the ailerons steered the jet away and into its ascent to start its display. After several minutes of scale flight the final descent and landing almost turned into disaster with the B-2 touching down a little too early and bouncing off the undulating grass surface. Fortunately the acrobatic flip resulted in minimal damage.

One of these flew at Bomber Field near Houston, TX not long ago. Very impressive planes. The landing here wasn’t much better than the one in the video.

AFAIK, the only one of those in existence belongs to the CARF guys and every time I've seen it fly, it looks just like the video,

That's entirely possible, it's been a bit since I went to a jet meet, but every time I saw the B-2, Andreaus was flying it including the first time at BITW a few years back. Flat scary watching it being mostly out of control the whole flight.
