I doubt that there’s even a cubic inch of wood in this project.
Having said that, I hasten to say I’m impressed with it even though the cost is exorbitant.
It seems to cry out for better controls.

I will agree that it is a flying machine operated by a nutcase, and I would like to try it out, but it is just a
little out of my price range. Thank you for sharing, maybe I can rig something up with a few lawn mower
