Guy I worked with at GM had something similar to that along with about 20 other RC helicopters and planes.

But he would never tell me what he had into the jet or other RC's so I just assume way to fucking much.

I saw an A-10 on ebay a few years back with a similar twin turbine set-up on it that guy had a "BUY IT NOW" of $22,500.00 and it looked just as bad ass as this SR-71

I'm not really digging the pants... but the plane is pretty cool, i can only imagine what something like that would cost. I'm sure labor would overlap the actual parts itself

I can't imagine being this guys neighbor, you know he's out there all the time flying that awesomely loud Jet. I had a neighbor that used to fly a regular RC plane over the property next to our house, and it was anoying as hell.
