What's the craziest thing you've been able to get to fly??

RCGroups.com users talk about their craziest RC successes.


Craziest RC Thing

Hey guys, It's late and I've probably had too much coffee...... hehe Looking for new and weird designs that I would be interested to scratch build. I typed in " sketch drawing steampunk jet powered warbirds " and man is there some freekin cool things that we could have a go at... well maybe..:eek:

That got me thinking, What's the craziest design I've got to "fly"...???

This is probably mine -

This thing which was labelled the 'flying table top' at the club field. I'm not offended, seems about right! Working on a smaller, better version.

And this friendly fellow which looks awesome in the twilight and dark. Now have it plated in silver and gold to really dazzle during the day as well.

The Box Fox .................. a 24" two pound (one # was ballast) cardboard/tape slope machine. I flew it in 40+ MPH winds. It could do big tall half pipes, loop, roll and land backwards on the edge.

Unfortunately the video disappeared.

Or .............. the OddBall.

Warning! Don't build floaties from EPP. I covered it with lam film on the bottom bits, but a wet aft end made it an adventure every flight.

I haven't got any in-flight shot of this, but it does fly.
