Need A Hobby! Try The DIY Cruise Missle $5K Costs!

Yup seems this fellow down in New Zealand is building himself a GPS guided cruise missle. The New Zealand military has apparently allready admitted that it would be very difficult for them to detect and counter it. (DuH! they have no warplanes!)

He is using all off-the-shelf components and expects the total costs to come in at 5 grand for the missle.

So if you need a hobby, consider building a cruise missle.

Bah, that guys a little late, built one last week and attempted to launch it at France. It just sort of went beep Beeep bep, and then blew up in my backyard. I would classify it as a failure.  Big grin

Well, if at first you don't succeed, then try try again!

Maybe next time you will hit Quebec!

And then the next time, "Paris!"
