In this video from RCScaleAirplanes we show you this giant RC AH-1 Cobra in Red Bull design with a lenght of 3.5m and a height of 1.00m poweed by a Jakadofsky Pro 5000 98000 turbine engine. The main body of the helicopter is die cast metal. It took 1,600 hours to the builder to build this amazing RC helicopter.

Some of the smaller attached accessory pieces like the air speed sensor and missile mounts are made of plastic.This unique scale look and details stun and make it hard to see the difference to a real helicopter. The real thing is much more impressive of course..
