You two guys DO know what happens at the end right?

If not, you're pursuing the wrong profession.

Almost looked like the pilot stalled it right at take-off. Elevator came up a LOT. I know if I were in that position, I would be jacked full of adrenaline. The wind doesn't really seem to want to cooperate, either. :/

Yeah, it seemed that a small gust or something "caught" it. It looked like there was a lot of water on the "track" that it was launching from. Not much speed.


Yeah, that would have to be some serious "Pucker Factor"

I am busy at work and no TV here


I was watching headline news yesterday and they showed footage of an attempt to fly a replica, I don't know where and when (i was at the gym watching it while working out).

The flyer pitched up about 15 feet, stalled and plopped down flat on the ground. I hope the pilot wasn't hurt!

Man I wish we had a TV here or I was at home!
