    magnus effect plane

    I know that peter created a plane using the magnus effect using kfc buckets; however, could the flite test team be able to create a plane using this effect in a way that could be built in something like a speed build kit? Fingers crossed!!!

    german speed demon

    Hey i love ww2 planes and saw a German plane that had one pusher and one puller prop. counter rotating to counter act the spin. this made the plane extremely fast. I'm wondering if you could design a plane that uses that same Technic to achieve extreme speed.

    How about merging RC cars with aircraft? Flying car?

    Maybe you guys can take on a challenge to build a flying rc car or truck (attaching wings to off the shelf rc vehicles). Also, maybe you can even use a fast truck like a brushless revo to launch a glider. This is some thing I haven't seen before.
