Doh - lost track of an entire day - game is tonight, not last night. Temporal reality is now restored.

So I played around with the Syma S107 yesterday. I have to say I am very impressed with it. I can't believe that for $20 I can get a rc helicopter that actually works so well. It is so easy to fly that I think my son will be able to do it by the time he is 4. My wife on the other hand kept hitting the ceiling with it then would let off the throttle and it plumet to the ground. The thing can really take a beating and keep going. I assume these are made in china because I don't think anyone else could make something this good for so little $$.

Cool, that sounds like the Blade heli's - they take a good beatdown - but you've got that for even less cost. Nice find.

Cool pictures of you bashing!

Off-roading is so much fun. Helis are boring. Never tried boats.

Loc: It's all about the location.
There was a cottager up in Norland(Ont) who had a rather expensive RC submarine. While showing it off in the river, which has some deep spots up to 80-90 ft, he jammed it under a sunken log. Gonzo!

How do you show off a RC submarine when you can't see it?

I did not know that RC subs existed. Neat stuff - not sure how exciting it would be but pretty cool anyway. Speaking of underwater, my son and I water tested the Slash 4x4 yesterday in the pool construction:

Fun video

and the submarine test below eek :

Spent last weekend up in Sudbury where my bro-in-law tested out a new mount for his GoPro camera on his T-REX500 heli. Video came out pretty neat. I am the dork that feels the need to dance when the camera is pointed at him. blush
