Wouldn't this (http://www.homedepot.ca/wcsstore/HomeDepotCanada/images/catalog/6d979f24-5a78-4ce9-ae09-c1e203210470_4.jpg) have been cheaper? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yeah, but this (http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/4482584/popup.cfm?tool=vLarger) ultimately might be more effective.

It show some guy demoing what could be described as an ultra-ultra-lite helicopter. Sorry! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

PS. I'd also say the contraption was FUBAR.

Basically, some guy had built a very small helicopter on the daVinci (http://www.aerospaceweb.org/design/helicopter/figures/fig02.jpg) principle - it was a tripod with two counter-rotating props on the top. He hung from the tripod with head under the motor and achieved the lofty height of about 2 feet off the ground (hence my facetious post)...
