The Dornier DO-X flying boat would reign supreme as biggest until 1942 when the Boeing B-29 Superfortress was introduced. Now the iconic flying boat has been miniaturized as an RC model, but it’s still pretty damn big.

A true scratch-built project, this 1/10-scale Dornier DO X. This impressive built-up plane has a 16-foot wingspan and weighs in at 132 pounds, and it’s powered by twelve 12 O.S..62 4-strokes engines.
The man who build this plane spent one year building this giant plane and that it has Futaba servos, fiberglass engine cowls and retracts and that its top speed is 59mph.
The sound of those 12 powerplants make is incredible, and the video shows how well the model handles in very heavy wind, even on landing. This RC is massive, eclipsing the sun as it flies overhead revs its six engines. The real Dornier Do X may not have been able to get more than 40 feet off the ground but this RC can really soar.
