Instead of Toledo, you should take it to Loch Ness in the Scotland.

Rick:

What PLANET are you from??!!

That is without a doubt the most phenomenal combination of concept, art, skill, techno-savvy and ingenuity I have ever witnessed in the RC world.

I feel bad for anyone who missed the chance to see it at Toledo. These pictures and video are good, but they don't do justice to the overwhelming PRESENCE this thing projects in person: the concept, the size, the perfection of the finish.

Surely you won Best of Show. If not, the judges need to be checked for a pulse.

Thanks for sharing!

Somebody needs to market that! The dedication to the project must be overwhelming, I know from my little Tweetybird project.
