    I look at that thing and this saying keeps coming to mind.
    There are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots

    The engines probably fine, its the airframe I don't like the looks of. Don't think the L16 would be powerful enough for it either. And whats with the wire frame seats?

    I think the robot guy should blow up the helicopter.

    Great Vid Ron. How did you get the G-force graphs into the video?
