Skyray 48-Boeing & NASA's prototype plane is the world's biggest RC plane

Take a peek at this recently released NASA video of the most advanced RC (radio controlled) model plane. The 10-minute video documents the perfect flight of Skyray 48, the Boeing-NASA prototype of what could be the future of commercial aviation. Designs derived from the X-48B will have less power consumption and fewer emissions, while increasing carrying capacity and speed compared with current cargo and passenger aircraft. The plane took off last year from NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center on Edwards Air Force Base, in California, controlled from the ground by Boeing pilot Norm Howell.
