    Unadvertized secrert abilities

    WD-40 or any aerosol can, including bug spray is a standard Aussie protection kit for big hairy things that bite or fly and bite. Add lighter, spray at nest and torch em quick before they get a chance to get revenge. A can in the hot sun and well shaken gives the best distance. Remember...

    Single Tube Fuselage idea

    Another great design from the House of Winton. The same house that gave us the Sapphire, Ultrabat and the world beating Facet Opal.

    ...any one you can walk away from

    No need for questions. YOU did exactly as needed- Aviate, Aviate, Aviate. Kept flying to the stop. Perfect. A few scratches and a tale to tell. Well done.

    Pegasus flying car/helicopter at CES 2020

    I don't think comparisons to normal cars is relevant. It is primarily a flying helicopter that also allows the power to drive the wheels. It is not designed anything like a car nor heavy like one. It would be fat motorcycle weight. Think more of a small sporthelicopter that allows you to get...

    CriCri MC-15 in NZ

    I like the way you have it. The distances are not great so easy access, with either hand or same. Yours makes it dead simple and hard to make a mistake. Very easy to scan and see whats happening and compare. I like it. Don't over complicate, no need to follow tradition, it is not a complex big...
