I won't call dupe because I don't have the original thread. They are pretty nifty though.

Dupe, Yes. But WGAF?

Those things are bad ass! I was showing the vid to Mrs. HS1 and she just thought it was the coolest thing she'd ever seen.

She says put it on her Christmas list. Uh oh.

How much?

According to a website that I had been on earlier; they're not for sale just yet as the inventor is still working on the project.

$78.00... that sounds very tempting.

What's not included in the kit that would have to be purchased?

Radio transmitter... what else?

I can testify to that. My Helicam ship is hauling a 3.5lb payload with energy to spare, running on NiMh's. LiPo's have an even higher power density. Good stuff.
