Ha, whatever.
Power to him.
Next up, he may have the Version 2 and will be rotating for "Massive Gain" in lifting power.
Only the Shadows knows.

Looks like a pair of invasion striped UFOs hijacking a P-51

And they are a big hit at fly-in picnics as well!

P.T. Barnum would be proud

What's even funnier about that listing, is the "State Of Assembly" which the listing has at "Almost Ready!" So I am guessing thet he sends you 4 foam plates, 6 popsicle sticks and a roll of tape!!

and someone actually purchased it for $12 + $5 shipping! WOW! I just purchased a bulk pack of 250 foam plates, I can supply anyone who might need some of these diskett wings (Some assembly requred!) for the same $12, but I will INCLUDE Shipping!!! What a Deal!
