Naga,

You make it look easy. How is the VPP set up? Do you have throttle and VPP on separate controls or are they mixed together on the throttle?

The Cargo Drop looked very cool when I saw it live. Then I had to clean up all that styrofoam! Next year we may provide some dry ice pellets for the drop. Same cool effect with no clean-up required.

I'm glad you had a good time. Hope you can make it back next year.

I'll put links to these videos on the expodome.org web site.

It was on the Today Show and NBC Evening News a couple of weeks ago. It's a form of "viral advertising" for an upcoming movie.
