    We had issues with copper theft real bad around here for a while. I think if those people had any clue this could happen it would through a wrench in the works.

    When you're from the country, your perception is a little bit different.


    A Queensland farmer drove to a neighbours' farmhouse in his Holden ute, and knocked at the door.
    A boy, about 9, opened the door
    "Is your Dad or your mum home?" said the farmer.
    "No, they went to town."
    "How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?"
    "No, he went with Mum and Dad."
    The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other,and mumbling to himself.
    "I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give dad a message."
    "Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter Susie pregnant".
    The boy thought for a moment...
    "You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don't know how much he charges for Howard."

    It looks like an almost full scale Cri Cri flown indoors.

    Yeah, they are really impressive. I don't know how they got retracts on a 2m ducted fan airliner and got it at 10 ounces RTF. Very, very impressive.

    Guy's I just listened to a 45 minute conversational exchange exactly like this! It was between my wife and her dad. They did not realize this is what it sounded like. I just sat there laughing my a$$ off. They kept asking me what I was laughing at...all I said was just listening to the conversation! Never thought I would see this happen naturally but I just did.

    Actually just started with chit chat then talking about his new cell phone she got him. It happened through 6-7 different subjects. At first it was aggravating to listen too then turned comical from my point of view.

    I'm guessing payload capacity is not that great either...

    I dont see the military dropping all the Black Hawks and CH-47's for this thing.

    Don't forget the CH 53-D/E!! The CH 47 has been referred to as "The flying bodybag" because of their crash record. They have failed in the middle of the airframe and decapitated pilots in flight, or even taxiing.

    The Old Man was crew chief on one of these, and the Helo is still in service, and also has the heaviest payload in the Marine Corps to this day. I don't know that there is a stronger heli in service still. The Skycrane is based off this airframe.

    My Brother goes every year.

    Mainly it's a place he can go drink and get into sword fights with other drunk people.

    Sounds like fun to me.
