It is pretty amazing how they have scaled up the technology - brushless motors, etc. All clever stuff...

I am following a guy that is building a mahoosive 777-300X*, folding wingtips, fowler flaps, the works - quite remarkable!  eeek:










* other large scale RC aircraft are available...

Wonder if BM could manage something like this.....?

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

And mine, it got worser and worserer the longer it went on.  Such a shame that one that teetered on the edge didn't fall off

Could add a whole new dimension to clay pigeon shooting.  'Clays' that shoot back

It may be bonkers but the flight transitions and dynamics were awesome and the camera work impressive given the difficulties
Well, whatever nevermind

On the other hand I've always wondered what would happen if you tried to fire a shotgun under water.....  rubschin:

Given BM's past record my hands are safe and my curiosity stands a good chance of being satisfied...  :thumbsup:
