I loved the remark by the little girl at around 57:39 when the kids realised the model pilot was James May and she said 'I know who that guy is from Top Gear, he's the really stupid one!' and I love how James May didn't have that edited out!

The thing that always gets me rewatching this is the look of utter joy on the face of the chase pilot. I mean the dude is actually flying a helicopter in real life, a significant feat of real world aviation and engineering. Yet the inner child looks at the toy glider soaring free and feels the magic of flight. "This is so cool." It's a sense of wonder we should all strive never to lose.

Not everyone likes the trio, but such genuine enthusiasm from James cannot be faked. A superb effort and fantastic aerial filming. Wonderful! The spirit of wonder, childhood dreams realized as an adult, and waking that from all of us as we watch is infectious. Believe it or not, back in August 2003, a model aircraft actually made a Transatlantic crossing! Called TAM-5 or The Spirit of Butts' Farm, it flew from Cape Spear in Newfoundland to Clifden, Ireland in 38 hours, 52 minutes, and 19 seconds! The aircraft was built by a team led by Maynard Hill, a retired metallurgist. Before this feat, Hill had previously set 25 model airplane records and was inducted into the Model Aviation Hall of Fame in 1977. Simply put, anything is possible if you still believe!

The most mind blowing part about this was the paper aircraft and darts found in the old school. The one James May found and flew had been sat there for at least 100 years, flown by a child long since dead and he casually flies it again. Just think about that for a moment. It had the same design we ourselves used. Decades before planes would look anything remotely like that. Potentially even a century or more. What a mind blowing moment.

In my teens I attended a plane modeling club where we built balsa wood models ourselves, from scratch. And I do mean from scratch because every bit, maybe apart from the fuselage we had to sand down to proper size, dimensions. Build wings etc. from that. Then cover them with special fabric. And those models weren't only for show. We attended and competed in events across the country on old airfield hauling the models up in the air, letting go of the line at a specific moment and then the judges would count the time it stayed in the air. Great memories and that show brought it all back. Thanks! As the Supreme Leader, thankful you said, “This is so British!” That’s exactly what I was thinking. Then, somehow, the uncooperative French made this video even MORE British! 😂😂😂 “Liberté! Fraternité! Absurdité!”

i watched this ten years ago when it was first shown, and found myself, once again, lumpy-throated and utterly joyful. It was the 'victory laps' that ultimately got me. Wonderful, wonderful television, and bravo to the producers for, presumably, greenlighting a budget-exploding gamble so that last flight was possible. i can't wait to show this episode to my infant son one day.

That was an awesome video. It really got me invested. I'm so glad you were able to do the final flight, that really was beautiful. I generally prefer aircraft that have their own thrust, but that was really beautiful. The church find was really amazing. I just assumed that the paper airplane design was made by children mimicking aircraft. I never imagined that it was the other way around. I guess there's just something embedded in humans, that lets us see how to do particular things. Instinctual things making us want to fly.

@Sam Holdsworth Neither of those were really toys. First was a Blade 120SR, which while old is a hobby grade model from Blade/Horizon Hobby, and the plane was a Parkzone Ultra Micro J-3 Cub, also a hobby grade micro RC. The radio was a (also old) E-Flite DSM radio, and certainly can connect to both of those DSM models and actually came with the Ready to Fly combos for both of them. Funnily I actually had both of those models myself back when I first got into RC in 2011-2012. If you scroll back far enough you can see the 120SR in the first video I ever posted on TRvid.

@RocketVlogs well, obviously, if he was a well-known known celebrity with a huge voice, then no one would care as much 😂 that's obvious. Amazon is looking at it from a business perspective, and Jeremy's of the cusp remarks can be extremely damaging to the shows and how people view amazon. Some may view amazon as in support of what Jeremy said if they had not acted. Any time someone has a large platform, it is obvious that their voice will be heard more and, therefore, silenced more.

Your RC helicopter at 4:08 reminded me of how I got into aviation in the first place. My first RC aircraft looks a lot like that toy helicopter. It worked for a few weeks and then the motor overheated :( It was so fun while it lasted. Then A while later I got a small (like size of your hand small) RC plane, but it worked better as a glider, especially once one of the microscopic motors gave out. Then I got a bit larger plane (a little bigger than your red piper) and it crashed into a few trees before the elevator rod fell out, making it impossible to control pitch, and therefore couldn't fly, but it lasted much MUCH longer and I'd buy it again if it wasn't for the next one I got. So far, these were all just actual toy aircraft that could fly in your back yard and only in less than 5 mph wind, but then I got an actual large RC trainer plane that hobbyists like me fly. Takes up the entire trunk of the car on the way to the airfield that you legally have to fly at. (well, almost. There's lots of legal restrictions on where it can fly and stuff, like not around crowded areas or above 400 ft or in airspace around airports, etc.) Now I'm on my way to getting a pilots license eventually.

I'm not even British and even I knew about the White Cliffs of Dover! For those wondering, the cliffs are white because they're made of chalk. Chalk is made of the remains of coccoliths. These tiny planktonic green algae once floated in the sea. How did the cliffs form? The White Cliffs date back over 136 million years, having formed during the Cretaceous period in the Mesozoic era. When the algae I mentioned died, their remains sank to the bottom of the ocean where it combined with the remains of other creatures. Over millions of years, the seabed became exposed and is now above sea level, forming the White Cliffs of Dover you see today. Such an iconic natural wonder that I hope to visit one day

As gliders rely on thermals to keep altitude I wonder if the glider can be fitted with sensors to detect the thermals, fly into them to gain height and then continue on to the destination.
boiledelephant Aylar önce
I imagine the problem there would be control - once you get into a thermal you have to do some rather measured and skilled corkscrewing to gain height, which relies a lot on feel. You could probably program a flight controller to do it, but it'd be a heck of a piece of software.

The thing that changed my rc plane experience over the years more than anything else is ammonia. Yes the chemical that burns your nose. With a little bit of ammonia you can warp, twist ,bend balsa into any shape you want without it snapping. It's like magic. The number of designs I could never make without adding glue weight jumped by multiple orders of magnitude after discovering that one thing.

This is VERY intriguimg to me as, someone who hasn't built an RC Plane for a few decades but have been thinking to get back in. What percentage of Ammonia are we talking about? Like, Windex amount (3-4%) or Jewelers Ammonia (25-28%)? Very interesting, thanks!

This is a cracking video and well done James and the crew ,what an achievement !!love seeing the enthusiasm of the Brunel guys and it just shows despite the underfunding of aviation that innovation is still alive and well ,great job !!

Could have done some slope soaring above those cliffs before landing, could have extended the distance flown by who knows. 😉 Regardless this is an awesome video, a fantastic idea and execution!

I wish my grandfather could see this! He grew up building his own RC airplanes in Indiana, USA back in the 1940s. We have a very cool news paper clipping from his local town showing him, at 14, holding a flying saucer RC plane that he built and which had been spotted by the people in town who of course freaked out, took photos, and even got the local police to chase and monitor it. Imagine their surprise when the saucer lands like a normal airplane (because it basically is) and a 14 year old boy with some radio equipment is the "alien pilot" who was flying it!

My grandfather used to build, fly and absolutely obliterated model aircraft. The excitement of watching that glider clear over 35km and land safely reminds me of the excitement I used to feel taking model planes up to Westbury and Heddington to fly them and occasionally get involved in a demolition Derby dogfight. Just a shame we never made the machine guns a reality (he even had an airsoft gun he planned to modify before he died, absolute madman).

It wasn’t to France, across the channel, but what an awesome record breaking maiden voyage, ending with the emotional words of James May 🍻

@chibani Often when we say such things, we’re not talking about the good people of the country.

@Sian Warwick he could get a guinness placard already for this if he just paid them to accept the made up category as externally verified. a lot of the records on guinness are like that now, single entry category purely novelty records that you can't try to break. see "business marketing solutions" on their site.

@Grey Hunter the "record" exists in the episode for the drama story arc to have some stakes and odds in it, but they change the odds like 5 times.

Who said that age of the exsentrics has over? The same emotions accompanied me when I watched a film dedicated to the first rises of the creators of the British Solar One...solar powered glider. The situation presented here is also unique especially for lovers of modeling!

The Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle, Wa has a hobby scale model that flew across the Atlantic by itself. I can't remember the exact specifics, but I believe it was one of the first flights guided by GPS completely.

Man even tho I’m only 19 years old but I used to build gliders and rubber band powered gliders a lot. When he talked about how he felt when his plane glide majestically through the air, I felt that too. I miss the days when I wasn’t busy with the university all the time. Seeing his plane made me miss my old planes so so much. Good old james may. Love this man so much.
