Great job, I really like that. And by looking at it, its got to fly and hover real nice. Its the ultimate POGO. Very nice, that must have been such a riot at the Christmas party.

That's a neat idea. Considering that its basically a delta, it has a lot of potential.
A lighting system on it looks more natural than on any airplane out there.

You've heard the story about how the angel got to be on the christmas tree haven't you? Looks like she's not happy about it!

Happy Yule!

Good Luck!

Sweet! My daughter suggested the same idea a few days ago, but I don't have the right equipment or foam at the moment to build it. At least I'll have a good idea how to build one next year - nice job, Gary!

We're so proud of you. You bring smiles to our faces.
That's a hoot, no I'm sorry. That's a tree.
Take good care of that angel.

I so thought about making one as well, using an idea from the HL Pogo for control surfaces and basic build and design. You beat me to it, so I don't have to build one, just admire yours!
