CC are the best in the world, and I think 3+ world records prove that.


BTW, I am working on something you would love, a 80% skeeter, 24in span, It will use a hacker a20 50s motor. I should weigh around 6-7 ounces.

same, thought the weedwacker was cool, audacious, techniclly challenging, but must admit find it pretty weird that something that promotes animal cruelty and shooting at children as inovative,techniclly challenging and cool! as non rc groups spirit and especially non cc with all the community projects they do.I guess coming from the us its more accepted as part of life but still find it weird to be promoted here but well done anway.
loved the big blue missile, that was cool just cause it was so huge .

I didnt think I had a prayer when I saw the weed wacker man. That thing is bad! Great work on that project.

Thanks for the compliments guys...I really built the wacker to be a usable tool, not to win any contests. I'll be ready for next years contest with something else altogether

P.S. that gun is awesome, I would love to have that in the office (with less power of course)

No offense to any winners, but I am honestly stunned the weed whacker didn't get first place.
