I finally broke down and got a dragonfly (radio shack had a $10 off sale). I expressed interest in it after getting my brother one for his birthday a couple of weeks back. When I first got it and tried flying inside, I was a bit dissapointed (and was starting to wish I had gotten the mosquito indoor heli instead). But after taking it outdoors, I was amazed with the performance. I can't believe how easily this thing can climb! I found myself getting nervous about getting stuck in trees very quickly: which finally happened today, but fortunately after a few luck throws with a stick, I managed to loosen it up enough to have it flap out. Anyways, just want to say how awesome this clever piece of engineering is.
P.S. Has anyone tried dog fighting with these things yet? I'm hoping to try it out against my brother's soon. I'll post how it goes!
