Don't get me wrong, I love just about anything RC. But I think that would get a bit mind numbing before too long!!

After watching just a small portion of the first clip, my wife is suddenly cool with my planes.

Reminds me of the movie "The Shawshank Redemption" with Tim Robbins as Andy Dufresne and Morgan Freeman as Ellis Boyd "Red", where Andy slowly digs a channel out of the jail, tossing the rocks from his pocket every day in the courtyard.

I wonder if this guy airlifted the dirt into the neighbors yards using RC helicopters?

What is interesting is my parents have a basement just like this guys. The soil is very hard clay and when the previous owners built the house they did not dig out the basement, just a crawl space. My brothers and I and my father hand dug about 1000 square feet of the clay that was between 4' deep to 8' deep, many, many wheelbarrow loads where hauled out.

Did you check out the Olympics? They were using model Mini's to retrieve discus, javelin and hammer. Really cool.

Those look like pretty nice rc equipment, not toy grade. Anyone know what brand they are?
