Flying an RC Helicopter From a Real Airplane Looks Like Fun

This guys thought it would be cool to fly an RC helicopter in formation with a real airplane, controlled from the airplane itself. It's pretty cool to see the helo spinning on the tarmac just to spring to the air as the Cessna gets within radio range.

The guys at HeliGraphix—the makers of the helo—completed their stunt in the Philippines, after three days of preparation. They flew the helo for 2.8 miles (4.5 kilometers) at 80mph (130km/h) for 2:08 minutes of total flight time.

I wish I could this while flying across the Atlantic. [HeliResource]

I have a 3D heli and it costs me about 90 bucks per landing(i'm not that good yet). If I landed it from inside of a plane, I'm sure I would be buying a new toy.
