I think I'm in love. Some brilliant man took an R/C F-16 jet, gave it a working digital altimeter, placed a tiny swivel camera in cockpit, and bought some video goggles with a head tracking gyroscope. The result is one of the coolest grown-man toys I've ever seen.

Also, his music choice is perfect and is exactly what you're thinking.

Who else here wants to get two of them (or larger r/c jet models), mount some bb or .22 machine guns on them, and shoot the hell out of each other in the sky?

I would totally do this if it didn't cost so much money. Even for just the plane alone.

Yeah, that was slightly metaphorical. The price is way more than I'd pay to do what I just suggested. :)

Doesn't stop me from REALLY, REALLY wanting to though. Santa, you hearing this?

Wow, that is one of the most awesome thing i've seen in a long time. I used to really do a lot of r/c things when I was little. Nothing brought a smile to my face like watching my model rocket soar into the sky, with the smoke everywhere. :)

Put me down for one of these things too
