Asking a woman to prom... Slow Stick + Banner?

There's this beautiful girl I plan to take to Winter Ball or Prom, or some dance. I was thinking that I could have my SlowStick pull a banner that just says "Prom?" on it.

What do you guys think? Possible? It won't need to be in the air for long. Just high enough above my high school campus for her to see it. In fact, I don't really care if it crashes and burns upon landing. Mission accomplished.

It has a pretty powerful motor. A brushless HiMax something... not sure exactly which one. I'll post some pictures later. I only need a runway of about... say... 0 feet.

So please, let me know what you guys think

Good idea if...
1) She knows you're into r/c stuff. You wouldn't want every girl that thought a nerd was cool to go with you...or is that your plan?
2) Along the lines of 1. She needs to know that the question is posed to her.
(joke)

Seriously, I know people fly along with streamers and stuff but I don't know about a banner. How big were yout thinking of for it? Wind will probably also be something to factor it because with more wind, the more the banner will pull the plane backwards.
I can't help you too much about saying yes or no about whether it will work as I still have to get mine in the air after a crash but the idea sounds fun. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Ummm... get someone else to fly the plane with the banner so you can be with her and point it out. Then take the money you would have spent fixing up the plane when it crashed and burned and get her some flowers.

My buddy and I did a demonstration of how full scale planes do banner towing for a college class with our slow sticks. They can pull it just fine on a stock motor, with a B/L you could haul something that could be visible up to 100ft away no problem. Like the other guy said, though, make sure she can see it, that it's addressed to her, and that you might not want to be the one flying unless she already knows how to get a hold of you and say what the was that?

I agree.. have someone else fly it... just in case you comes a running to either a) hug you and tell you yes, or b) slap the crap out of you for embarrassing her.... either way the plane is toast and since it will be AT SCHOOL you dont want to hit anything/anyone (except maybe a male rival... J/K)....so definately have someone else fly it... also do a test run before... that way you know it will be readable.... good luck!!

Kinda reminds me of the two "companions" who won an RC plane at a costume party and wanted to stick rocket engines to it.

Troll or not, the idea seems pretty lame to me. You will get laughed right on up out of school. Is this girl a friend? Do you interact with her regularly? If so it may work, but if she is only someone you've admired from a far, read too afraid to speak to her; prepare to get "Jacked Up"! LOL

I think you'd be better off with "diamond ring + banner" I doubt a Slow Stick would impress a high school babe much.

When you troll, be sure to get the details correct.

"Homecoming FALL"
"Prom SPRING"

Thank you for playing....
