World's Largest Radio Control Robot Dragon

I finally have something interesting to post here...

Called "Tradinno", this massive mechanical dragon has been declared the world's largest 4-legged walking robot by Guinness World Records 2014.

It is a 11-ton dragon that has a length of 51 feet and a wingspan of 40 feet.  This behemoth was built by Germany's Zollner Elektronik AG.  This robot was built for show buiness - but we will not be seeing it on a new season of "Game of Thrones" or a updated Harry Potter project.  Instead, this robot will appear in a old folk play called "Drachenstich".  It is performed every August in the Bavarian town of Furth im Wald.

For more details, just copy and paste the link below in the "Ref" section.
