    Wow, just superb. . .I mean the paint peels away just sitting on the ramp they look that fast, lol. In flew the earlier models that were only partially completed and really had a blast, but these are so well done. . . .what a terrific gift to the community.

    Although the lack of wing area is a little frightening, what a lovely aircraft (I've always like thed lines of this design). Wonderful detail as well, with a big straight-six up front.

    I agree wholeheartedly! I know nothing about the engine used on this beauty, does the sound file do this baby justice or is there a different soundset that would be better suited?

    Speaking of the Caudron racers, here are some videos of the airworthy reproduction of the C.460, that was finished a couple of years back. It really helps to further illustrate just how tiny the aircraft is. Before being shipped to France, it flew in California for a little while, where it had been built

    I saw that too! I love the fact that the R/C version is so close in size to the real thing. ; )

    Lots of time, money and dedication when it comes to scale R/C. And the vehicle needed to get them to the field.

    Beautiful gems for the FSX, I must say!
    I remember the beta version of this Caudron which was relased for the FS9 few years ago and I was very impressed with it. Same goes with this official relase.
