Seeing as RC aircraft models have a range of about 1500-3000 feet, the helicopter gunships must have been hovering over a field occupied by children.

RC aircraft come in a range of sizes. Keep in mind that the military's Predator and Global Hawk are RC aircraft. Even among the hobby group, you can get some pretty hefty long-range planes.

Just like with model rockets ranging from "bottle rocket" size all the way to twelve-foot tall giants that will go into the stratosphere

Good point. I built a couple 4 foot giant rockets from Estes when I was a kid. Some of the best fun I've ever had. Now I hope I don't crash the RC electric planes..
