Great idea! But can it strafe airfields, drop bombs, or dog fight? Probably won't get much funding unless it can.

I'm being facetious! ;)

Seriously... that site is a great find Brian. Thanks!

A fantastic achievement.
And not only that, but it was done by a scaled up version of a TRUE model Airplane. ( Free Flight Style)
The revolution of electric flying is only starting.
