That's one funny looking gun, I couldnt even see where the bullets come out?

What do you suppose is the lift capacity on that little bad boy?

Think it could lift a bottle of...say...tannerite?

I don't think he needs any ideas.....

Just remember Ryfter, you bomb us with your plane and we get to shoot back at it.

Actually I think you should let us shoot at it anyway. I mean what are the odds that we'd hit it? And even if we did it would just punch small holes in it. We could make a rule that AZ can only use his weapons if the happy switch isn't on "high". You know we are not *really* going to hit it and the odds of actually hitting something like the motor are far higher than the fuselage or wings..................what do ya think?

Actually, I have been discussing something like that. But, I am really not too keen about you shooting my plane. I know the chances of hitting anything CRITICAL is pretty low, but it is still my plane! I could probably pick something up for like $50ish, with esc, motor, everything. (used). That may be the way to do things.

As for the lift capasity, that is a small helo, so it would not be great. I know that larget ones mount some decent camera equipment on them. The trouble with a heli, though, is they are VERY tough to fly. An airplane is FAR easier to fly.

I did a bit of RC flying for a couple years while I was out of work on disability. It was a good way to pass a few hours of the day. Never tried Helos though as like Ryfter said, they are harder to fly.

What I keep wondering about, is something like braided, high strength fishing line (what they use for deep-sea fishing) with a Tow-behind target. I am thinking 2 feet long, in a + type shape. Get a square piece of balsa and glue on some fan-fold foam. I just wonder about the drag on something like that... and the stability of the tow-behind.

I ordered a brushless motor and ESC this week, so I have the parts needed to make the EZ* you all saw, go even faster. Add a larger prop, and I would get more thrust... which means, it could "carry, or pull" more. :-)

What we need to do is make some of those cheap big styrofoam planes like the use at the big shoots to blast at.
