Hehe, that's what I was thingking worst case, If I just miss the roof and stick the landing, it should come to a stop. Bit there is allso a pool right next to it..

Below is sample from the side, I'll get on the roof tonight and take a pic of the approach angle.

I'll post photos when it is done. The girlfriend is doing the paint work, I'm making it fly

Sounds an interesting project. Then build its big brother .....
