Yeah, here's a couple more "what IZITS"....Here's a clue- neither one worked in their photographed condition. Both worked after some "adjustment".

It looks like that new Du-Bro tool - the "Balsa Pounder" designed to reduce your latest crash to ever smaller pieces to later be used as filler. Comes in the 1/4 lb, 1/2 lb and 1 lb models. Helps to take off the edge and pain of having the frustrating "dumb thumbs" disease. And those holes in the bottom - just an added bonus - it allows you to toot your own horn if you can rebuild the crash pieces into a flyable plane.

Right one looks like one of Claud McColough's flying devices with the rotating wing, just forget what it was called.

....O.K. the thing on the left is an engine from a "powered surfboard". It was re-buildable.

The "thing" on the right is my rendition of a "rotor wing". I had to turn one of the rotors 90 degrees. It flew, just about as well as it looks like it would fly- so-so.

The rotor rotates backwards and creates lift. There are (were) some sailboats that use these as a sail and there are also some wind driven generators that use these as well. The wind blows across them and they turn on a vertical axis.

O.K., WHO'S NEXT?

The very small black boxy thingy looks like an item from some of the catalogs that have mysteriously ended up in my mailbox. Most of them list it in some form or fashion as a radio powered money sucker. The aluminum thingy looks like an attachment with multiple money sucker nozzles.
