That's at hodges hobby and that's Mac starting and flying it. I don't believe those are chain saw motors. If you would like to see him fly it, he most always pulls it out at SEFF, his hobby shops annual flyin. You can check his hobby shop out on the web.

Those of us who attended SEFF 2008 had the opportunity to see Mac fly his B-29....not once, but twice! Awesome to say the least. Nothing like a 4-point roll with a giant scale B-29 to get your attention, to say nothing about an inside loop on final to a landing. I don't dare doing that with my Elfi!
