Go ahead and order one!

Be sure to post video when it snows!

(I'm tempted to post my "Make this thread GO AWAY" post as I have on similar threads, so far my will power is still strong enough to resist, but man that thing looks good !!!)

JohnWPB, let us know when you get it!

I will beat the dog to the door when the doorbell rings :) In the mean time, we both just sit on the back of the couch in the afternoon, noses pressed to the glass and watch for the mailman! hahahahah!

I'm just hoping it's strong enough to lift a 9V battery, and the micro camera. It should be... Fingers crossed.....

If it is, I will have to pop a VCR in the car and hook the receiver to it. Then drive to the park, and TRY to get some footage.

Here's the cam I have:

Skibum, heheh it won"t be EVERYTHING in the above picture :D Just the camera, (The lowest thing in the photo, with the antennae wire) and a 9v battery. The rest of the stuff are the wallwarts for continous power, and the receiver ect.

We may not find out for quite a while if it would work ot not actually :(

Well it doesn't get much worse that this! The "Plane" arrived today, but the battery packs are on Back Order!!!!!!!

I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, and the parent forgot to buy the batteries with the new toy!!!

I'm actually gonna return this thing, now that I have opened it and had a look at it. It has a single Elevator, if you want to call it that on the back, and no rudder. This will basically allow it just to go up and down, and left and right would be done with the dial propellers, which is not much control at all. It would handle NOTHING like what you see in the video's posted earlier in this thread.

Now wait a minute John,

You are thinking like a pilot :D

It's NOT an airplane, heck it doesn't even look like a C172, err its a boat-car-plane thingie or something.

Don't you believe your own eyes? The video did show it flying!

Maybe you need to look at it from the point of view of a captain-driver-pilot :)

Where is your spirit of adventure?
