i just want to see and hear the performance of one of those props, it may suck on a performance plane but put something like that on something that isnt requiring top performance to fly it may be "OK".

All joking aside, there might be something to it. I have seen something kind of similar that NASA played with many years ago. You just don't know until ya test it out & measure the real world results.

Im with you Vitter, the pure FOG eye poppin freak out factor might be all I need to buy one. lol

Sad news. Just received this email

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Remote Control Hobbies in Woodinville, effective today. It has been our great pleasure to serve you these last 7 years, and while we would have liked to continue, it is simply not possible under current economic conditions. We would like to thank you all for your past business and your support. Many of you have become more than just customers, you have become our friends, and for that we are ever grateful.

Best wishes to you all,

Dave, Sean, Zack, and everyone else from Remote Control Hobbies Woodinville

In the FG thread, one of the guys offered to let me try it out.
I've pm'd him asking if he is selling or just lending for shipping costs.
I'll let you know unless you have already clicked the purchase button on the revolutionary web site.
I pressed the BUY button Cry, I'm hooked.

Only found 3 vids on YouTube. One of a guy with a DA60 turning 7500 static, read on his HiTec A9 so who knows... Anyway here's the best of the wide assortment:

I say Gas Monkey Vic dips back in to the 12s world of the dry stuff to see how it spins up on his Slick. That may be STUPID quiet since all I hear is this guy's stock DA muffler screaming through the video.
