You did more than fly! You got serious local coverage!!! Awesome!! I expect that vid to appear on CNN and Letterman in a few days.

Hey!! Where can I get wunna them "HORSEPOWERED ENGINES"???!!! LOL!!!! Rats walter beat me to it.

Otto, you may have started something bigger than you. Yes they'd be expensive but there will be demand. On the plus side a molded version will be too expensive for the Chinese to steal appropriate the idea. (Not completely sure about that though - they grab everything else within reach.)

I came across this today

Iron Man Flying R/C Extreme Hero from EB Brands (1 min 44 sec)


19 inch long RC flying Ironman

is this one of yours too ? Or are the Chinese making a knock off already?

Thought I saw a Disney logo on the first one I came upon

Interesting. A bit smaller than my 23" version and it uses twin props for steering with probably no servos like an Air Hog? Hopefully Otto snagged some credit along the way since it's very similar to his construction but with a completely different control scheme.

I am not involved but hope they sell a million and get a lot of kids interested in the hobby.

Looks great. Just the right size for the winter indoor rc sessions.

Yup I fly my 23" in a full size soccer field and the commercial one looks slower.

Frankly, that video makes it look like a piece of crap.
