These miniature fighter jets are exact replicas of their full-size counterparts, just a quarter of the size.

The replica aeroplanes can travel at speeds up to 500 km/h (310 mph), outrun even the fastest supercars on the planet, and cost an eye-watering amount, too.

If you’ve got about $30,000 lying around, you could own your very own replica fighter jet, so long as you’ve got the guts to fly it without crashing.

By the way – if you do crash, it’s probably going to get messy, as they are full of real jet fuel, and run incredibly hot.

In this video, Alex checks out these incredible 1/4 scale fighters, as well as looking at some of the other remote-controlled aircraft at Dubai-based club SkyHub RC.
