Mythical Beast is a radio-controlled jet powered dragon that can breathe fire and fly at up to 100 mph. The dragon was created by Pittsburgh-based R/C plane enthusiast Richard Hamel over the course of a year. It has a nine foot wingspan and a propane fire breathing system that is ignited by a 50,000 volt stun gun. Hamel discusses the dragon in this video interview with RC Pilot Magazine. Hamel has also posted a very grainy video of the dragon in flight.
