Just these three. We were pretty busy and should have gotten some at the Hollywood sign.

Otto,

We all thank you for taking the time to detail this story. Every word was interesting, even my bride was interested, as we have been following you since the YF-22 I built for our Son.

Well I watched the show and discovered why were canx,,,,, Jimmy's black eye from the weekend needed explanation that took a lot of time and a skit. That displaced us and several other planned bits.

They loved the bit. We will be called back whether it's a day, month or months from now.

Actually they fly alright without the inserts, just a little more power.

Do they use the same motor as the regular Flyguys? BTW, I've just watched your video of the 3D Flyguy ... and when I turned on the TV it was on the news channel (Sky UK)

Thanx for the heads up. We filmed yesterday with Reuters TV. We started with the same motor and no arm inserts and he could just do circles. The arm inserts helped a little but we upgraded to a larger motor running 4s. Let me know if he pops up anywhere else.

Already on the News in England, I'll bet you will get coverage from all over!

It would be interesting to hear from all who have seen it on the media.

Reuters came out yesterday and shot video for worldwide distribution. Today they distributed to 650 subscribers a longer version of what they posted on their own site. We also were featured on Sky News, one of the better known news services in Europe.
