I've always been a firm believer that ANYTHING will fly with enough power, so, I'd figure about 300 watts per pound. Sound about right?

Seriously though, I'd throw some depron wings on it, and don't give up till it's flying - and landing, at will.

I remember seeing an artical for a R/C flying snoopy doghouse. If I remember correctly both ends of the dog house were open and the floor was the wing. Probably late 60s or early 70s. I may still have the artical.

You know there are flying rc Snoopy doghouses. If I dug through about 30 magazines, I have a pic somewhere.
.....lawnmowers and other oddities too
