    Those Flying Squirrel things man, They'll rip you to shreds. reading about in some science magazine lately, something like 30% of all flights end up in dismemberment or death.

    I can't wait to hear about the first one of these guys that dies because the jet engine explodes on him. Those small hobbiest get engines have a tendancy to lose razor sharp fan blades at random times and then detonate...

    however stupid it is however, thats FUCKING AWSOME!!!

    I want to know how much thrust those little bastard are putting out...


    If he really held it level for half a minute with that little tiny amount of wing surface, he had to have been going seriously fast..

    There are a few companies out there that make turbine engines that small that can push uh... "objects" with very small wings and that weigh about 200 pounds on a similar size fuel supply for well over half an hour. I don't remember what the company web site is that I saw off the top of my head, but it was something like TDI engines. They exist.

    I think my dad used to work in a solid fuel processing line for powering missiles.

    they get some serious engines in small places.
