most stupid fun I've had in awhile

http://aeroacemods.com/aam/


you can get these little planes at target, or toys r us or other places (I went to target to get my second one after I flew my first one way off course into some random yard a couple blocks over)



for 30 bucks these things are a kick in the ass!

even if it does make me a dork

here is my toy of choice at 80+ mph...

this thing rocks... and i can fly it up & down my street... and even charge the battery in my car...

http://www.hobbyzone.com/rc_planes_p..._stryker_c.htm

the gas powered planes i also fly are a bit faster... but... no messy fuel to deal with.







ready to fly straight out of the box. experience not included.

my architecture instructor flies one too. sometimes he assembles one in class when there's nothing else for him to do.

You had this in another thread, if I recall. I still think it would be absolutely hilarious to be driving down the motorway and have one of those pacing you in the adjacent lane. On a three lane highway have it fly on the left and then barrel roll over to the right lane.

you can pick em up at target or tons of toy stores, 25-30 bucks


get the biplane, not the jet looking one though it's way more controlable.
