Challenge - Make a sledgehammer fly

#2
According to google, your average sledge hammer weighs less than your average cinderblock. The plane that flew the cinderblock would easily fly a sledge hammer.

with a sledgehammer you have a different issue. A cinderblock is balanced, whereas a Sledgehammer is much heavier on one end than on the other.

He has a good point here. In the challenges, the items that flew had to do their job while flying. The brick sat (as bricks do) the blender blended, the toaster toasted. For a sledgehammer to work it has to swing.

Swinging a sledgehammer is a VERY different challenge than blending, toasting or bricking. That's a moving (heavy 2lb or 12lb) weight. Instead of simple mechanics and complex electronics, it would likely need simple electronics and complex mechanics.

Imagine if Dave had a sledge instead of a pen for the duel in the air with the airsoft tail-gun...

possibly swinging a sledgehammer to break glass?
