May 3, 2010: Big Boy, Big Toy
Brit, Tony Nijhuis, like a zillion other people, built himself a model airplane.
It's not only capable of carrying mini-bombs, it's sneaky quiet.
I wonder if having to assemble a crew, and get government permission, takes some of the spontaneity from playing with this toy?

What would propel a man to build that?

In any case this is a 100 times cooler than the half a boat from the other day.

Building it spanned 2 years, a departure from the norm. I'd rudder it didn't take so long.

Built from scratch?

24 batteries...for each motor? And each motor consumes 4k watts? WTF kind of batteries is he using so that the whole plane only weights 80#? Nuclear?
