The most ridiculous use of an RC Airplane

In my quest to save the newbie from the Wingo, it has come to my attention that this plane is used more to do odd jobs than for actual flying. Please don't confuse these oddball uses of the plane as versatility. I am sure that the people who do these things have become bored of smelling epoxy and need to justify their choice of a pink plane. Some of the ridiculous uses of this plane include (but I am sure are not limited to) the following:

  • Pylon Racer (that must be some sort of cruel joke)
  • Instamatic camera
  • Pink soup ladle
  • Tug boat (ask Lance)
  • Plane for Malibu Barbie
  • Color verifyer for cotton candy
  • Boat beacon (again ask Lance)
  • Fishing Rod ????
  • Star of that new cartoon "Paul the Puffy Pink Plane"

I am sure there are others. Please if you have seen this or any other plane doing something it shouldn't list it here. I am sure that 90% of the entries will be Wingos but that's ok....

If you can come up with a use more ridiculous than these. I promise to change my avatar to something less offending to Wingo users.

If you were to put a weight on the motor shaft slightly off center you would have a great remote control.....

I would say that all the uses that you listed and some that you didn't just proves the Wingo is the most versatile model plane there is.

The most ridiculous use of an RC Airplane

Hey Sohowingo -

The most ridiculous use of an RC Airplane is to use it as a whipping post to satisfy a personality disorder!

Hey soholingo, if nothing else a Wingo's good for giving you a purpose in life.

Ok, we get it: it's pink, it's ugly, and it's breakable. Why don't you pick on another plane, like a Firebird 2? It's yellow, it flys away, lands on it's belly, and only goes round and round.

Oh that must be it.. Soho can't fly, has a personality disorder and hates his mother.. so it's all taken out on "the best flying RC plane ever".. the wingo.... He attacked the PLANE, not any individuals....geez.. You guys are a little too touchy! Ask me how much hate E-mail I received after I launched an anti-wingo campaign...... yet in the mail last week came a huge "no zagis" sticker from an understanding vendor.. All in good fun...
