Estes XB-39 RC Digital Aerial Photo Airplane

Sun Dec 11, 2005 2:15 am

This looks interesting. I think I'll buy one for the hell of it. My neighbors will freak! It's $148 at WalMart and other places.

I know Estes has made rockets with cameras in them, but this definately out does it.

It looks easy to fly. It uses thrust vectoring to turn and engine speed to climb and descend. I wonder if they're in the WalMart stores for the same price.

This isn't what the camera was in, but here is one of my other planes  Cool

As much as that is cool, I think this beats the bush:

Looks to me like a cheap homemade hydrolysis powered rocket


:D

I'd get it in a second!
