Ufo like RC craft over Oxfordshire Feb 12 2011 ?

Just a curious look here ... Im sure this is some remote controlled man made object but not sure what?
If anyone has any ideas what it could be it would be appreciated as a reply to this post.
Filmed over Oxfordshire on Feb 12 2011 - if you live in the area we would like to hear from you as well.

Very peculiar.

Looks like a gas powered rc aircraft. It doesn't climb up pretty well. and they probably have smoke gears attached to see fancy trailing.

How can you be so sure it's an RC craft? Doesn't really follow the movements of RC helicopters typically display and it seems to be pretty large... Most RC crafts can't really carry any extra weight... It could be kites with streamers of some sort attached, but i'm not so sure how you can automatically assume it's an RC craft...

Looks like an rc craft to me with possible fireworks attached somehow

Do you anonymous posters ever contribute anything of value? I've yet to read a comment. His question was if you knew what the RC craft was if it was any. The "smoke gears" as you called them generate a constant stream behind, and there are clearly two objects visible creating these luminescent tails, if it looks like a typical gas powered RC helicopter or plane give us some info or a link to something similar. I myself visit radioshack and hobby shops regularly and i've never seen anything like this, and i don't really know of any fireworks small enough/lite weight enough to mount onto an RC craft that would generate that much light and smoke or an RC craft capable of carrying fireworks that large while still being able to maintain a steady flight pattern or fly at all w/said fireworks attached...

The way it fizzles out and disappears at the end is also very peculiar

Why does this make it on your "UFO" site? Are the pickings so slim that you need to post crap like this.

this is called will-o-the-wisp in the uk, or plain old swamp gas to everybody else.

Thank you for validating my initial point anon trolls

I suspect it's an LED kite. Compare this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVROAKQs92M

do you think it's dust crop? they look like heavy cuz they get pulled down by gravity.. perhaps liquid instead of powder?

Depending where this was in Oxfordshire, yes, we do have quite a few RC clubs and kite flyers that may just be having fun.

Doesn't anyone fly kites anymore? It's a kite with a smoke maker like in air shows.

FUN? Oh yeah I remember that.
Doesn't exist in the UK any more though.

Still its a very strange flight pattern.
