    I just thought of a very bad idea and was going to mention it as a joke... then I though better. Monkey see monkey do type of thing.

    Awesome video and experiement though. Might try to put some fins or install a small gyro to keep it steady next time.

    Good idea....the jumpiness made me a bit queasy watching it.....but it was still a cool thing to watch. I am surprised that it made it so far and only landed 30 miles away.

    That was great and I believe the landing happened with less destruction than I thought it would have had. Hmmm the last 2 minutes ... that's a "do-over"!!!~jimmy
