Ha ha!

Last time I saw one of those was in the Bond film Octopussy !

:)

 

 

 

Great clip that!  I remember as a kid being awed at him flying that thing through the hanger! I see the clip now, and it looks a bit worse for wear than I remember as a kid, but still great memories.

I think it's the flared nylon "slacks" and safari suits that really date his time as Bond.

Typical 1980's style!

:lol:

Hi Maru,

 

I ordered the stock version :

But If I can find the decals, I might build it as one of these :

To honor Chuck Lischer, who had a fatal accident in a BD-5J.

I've been in love with the BD-5J since Jim removed the pusher prop. I'll surely be building a lot more then one.

And now there is the Microjet taking the BD-5J to a new level

Many years ago I had a Byron 1/4 scale (I think) ducted fan R/C kit of the BD-5J, I think I bought it 3rd hand in about 1990. once I realised that my bag of talent was way too small to build it, let alone fly it, I sold it on.

 

I often wonder if it ever got built and off the ground, or is it still being stored waiting to find the right person to build and fly it successfully.

I received my first BD-5J from the preorder today,  the Bud Light one, and it looks gorgeous.  Will try to work up a review in the coming days so you all can see what to expect :)
