1. That thing is cool.

2. That thing has to cost some serious cash.

3. There's his faithful wife standing there with the fire extinguisher before takeoff.

More like a toy for boys...not exactly what comes to mind when you say "boy toy."

That thing just sounds awesome.  You really need to know what you're doing to fly and maintain one of those things.

Wow I wonder how many hours it took for him to build that. Just fantastic!

Migsy, you NEED one of these.  Mrs. Migs would understand.  But what you REALLY need, it a RC jet-powered flying guitar. Obviously a Flying V.

I had a 1/10 Hen Long Pershing tank with upgraded metal tracks, but I kept burning motors out on the left side. Finally, I sold it and got into trucks, subs and boats.

Nice find.  I wish my wife would stand by me with a fire extinguisher while I play FPS's online. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.
