Nice shots Nick.

Did you see that flying saucer like thingy fly?

I have seen a small video clip of it somewhere but the quality was not good enough to make an educated guess of its size, let alone its flying characteristics.

I had no clue it was that BIG!

Your comments will be appreciated.

Thanks

Here is where I first saw those discs/saucers, they are not that expensive and look like fun to have around.

I just went to their site and saw the three lower videos they have on their site linked to Putfile.com.

I have also e-mailed them to find out more about the product. There isn't much info on their site regarding size, weigth for the hoverdisc and where are they located.

i saw a a couple of them fly. They didn't seem to mind the wind on Friday. I believe the one in the pic was wrapped in glow wire and flew at night.

Thanks for the info Nick.

I'll be getting me one of those. They look rather interesting and slow enough on their videos to be able to fly on a back yard.

Hey guys! Just noticed this here. I'm working on a new web site that has the info ya'll need. What I have had is kind of lame, but I'm working on that. Trying to find a shopping cart that works and can provide it all is not easy it seems. All that and I'm also working out the kinks on the Mini version so it flys as good as the biggie, but in the space of a driveway. It should be all back together real soon.

PS..

Size = 3ft diameter (2ft for the new Mini)
Biggie Weight = 8-11oz auw depending on gear (I have flown a full can of Mountain Dew 13.7oz using GWS EPS 350-C "C" gearing, 10x4 prop, Pico servos, 900mah 3cell lipo)
The wing loading is about half of a GWS Pico Stick with a 6 inch thick airfoil (hence the ability to handle a surprising amount of wind, yet fly as slow as Granny's walker).
