In this episode of Flite Test Josh and Josh talk about the Candy Plane. Watch as they explain how to make your own drop mechanism, for multiple types of air craft, to drop candy for all! But please, SAFETY FIRST!

Aside from candy, what else can we drop from our planes that would create happiness?
I've a paper plane dropping aircraft. The kids make the paper planes, we put them on the rc plane, I fly out and release, return to land, the kids are then permitted to retrieve the paper planes, reload and do again!

You guys had me hooked.... but I think I'm not hooked anymore. This is cute and if it were just an entertaining side project it would be fine, but I'd really like to see some planes and heli's....

Flitetest for me was about seeing what new plane my friends Josh and Josh had just picked up. Sure I know they were going to say it's great. (why would you bother to do a whole episode about a bad plane) But that's how it is at the field... I show up, my buddy just bought plane X and thinks it's great, we chat about it and I watch him fly it. If I like it I go buy one too.

I'm just not going to spend much time scratch building.

Sorry for the rant, good episode, but not great.... and you have had some great ones.

There wasn't that much flying in it - which made it different as you say. But being a guitar player myself I was surprised at the intro :)

I like Josh's Turnigy guitar strap!

Well, I see it... it's definitely not photo-shopped.
Thank goodness for a moment I thought only Thomas and myself could see it. Showed the wife and she said "You're an idiot, they're just two candy wrappers".

I've looked at the footage you posted but for the life of me I can't see big foot :(
