Here are a few of my favorite things...

Here are my latest mad dream schemes I thaught up.

First ofcourse is the ever popular flying STOP sign. My favorite of my "thingz". 22" span of FFF painted and vynle letters. Made from a GWS flyign PIzza kit. flies GREAT! If you've never tried a flying wing of this type, try it! Get a GWS Pizza or lady bug and see what they can do! mad 3D and all kinds of fun weird manuvers for CHEAP! Pinty of power with 3cell on the stock brushed motors! My stop sign on 3 810cells and stock motor swinging a GWS 10x4.7 prop hovers below half throttle AND I GET ABOUT 15-20MIN FLIGHTS ON IT!!

Next is what I came up with after lunch one day

It is the accual top of a large Domino's pizza box! 16" pizza = 16" flying wing thing. Made just like the sign only w/o the rudder. It flies just fine with the 350C-C and 10x4.7 prop on 2-3 or 8cells! It doesnt weigh much at all, MAYBE and oz. over the sign. It is a ROCKET! But will still slow down to a crawl and harrior around the front yard, no hovering w/o rudder, though.

Last, but not last in line is my underwear!
Thursday's pair to be exact
Made from stripped Wal-mart foam board. 18" span
Flies ok, but it needs more power to really have fun with so I am goign to replace the GWS 250motor with the 350's from the other wing thinz and try it. Other than underpowered, it flies like the est of them!

Which is your favorite?

After a slam dunk with my old E-Flight Tribute in a goal after a bad rolling circle attempt I have also decided to make a flyign Basket ball. 22" span like the Stop sign.

I have also been given a challenge by a friend to make a flying can of SPAM Which should I make first!?

After spewing my beer all over the screen and getting up off the floor laughing, you know what you have to use for a rudder for your shorts.

Take your undies idea and do something a bit more "sporty" that would also be more of a challenge ...like a g-string!

You should have put a Skid Mark in the underwear wing.

Okay, so, it doesn't make much sense but neither does what we pay for gas.

A biplane flyingwing.... Hmm, sounds to me like they would need to be staggared to help with pitch sensitivity.

I have also done 2 (one mini) hoverdisks and thoughs are AWSOME!
