    How the **** do you make a lawn mower fly?

  3. They used a remote control airplane Mike...but the questions is - Is that a real sized, metal lawnmower, or one of those plastic kids ones? I'm going with one of those plastic kids ones.

    That was way too friken cool but Im not sure a remote controlled plane could make that fly. Where are the wings? I dont think the lawn mower had enough wing surface area.

    possibly the coolest thing that I saw today...

  13. I was close...
  14. That is way too cool. You know how funny that would be to fly down a highway during rush hour? LOTS of odd stares and people swearing off coffee, alcohol, drugs, whatever.


    That's great.

    Rock on

    I've seen these before...

    It's NOT a real lawn mower, its literally a flying model purposely designed to LOOK like one... As for the wings, the whole "mower deck" IS the wing... The elevators protrude from the rear of the deck & the handle acts as the rudder.

    I think this really paves the way for chia planes.

  17. You can't make a lawnmower fly.

    It has to want to.
