That video has been in the spotlight for some time now. There is already a thread here about it.

Thanks anyway.

That concept of : Land, Air & Sea use gives new meaning to the word..."air-boat".
It was just a mattter of time since a lot of hydro boats started "going airborne" before someone really made them go ...airborne!

This whole situation is funny. Michael connely put out this video of an r/c that it seems everybody has to have, and it has stirred huge internet chatter. The plans and planes for sale now are knock offs of the original design, and the original designer is no where to be seen. He's shut down his message board, he's still not selling any boats, and has decided not to sell plans for the boats. Shouldn't he be upset that people are knocking off his idea? Heck, why would he post the video in the first place if he was no where near ready to market the item. He could have made a mint, it seems to be such an innovative idea. Is it just me or does something seem weird with this story?

Guess it all depends on the price he was going to ask , or was asking for it . Knock-offs are ALWAYSgoing to be around and if he did not get a patent for it ....
Any who ....
SUPER idea , and not really a "totally" new one though . Seems they took the WIGGIE and went one step further . ( controls )
Otherwise , folks , remember , the WIGGIE was out there for quite a time now AND was an airboat that flew [8D]
