    Wii!!!

    My friend and I just finished testing out his new Wii. I must say, I was originally turned off by the new control concept. I didn't think they could really pull it off without ruining the fun of video games. After two hours or so of playing Wii sports (the one game that comes included) I must...

    F-104 vs. MiG-21

    So, you think a particular plane is better, because it puts its pilot at greater risk? Oh, and about the number of F-22's and their price, the point is that they'll be bloody expensive, and no one denies that. Right now, the Air Force has only ordered 100 or so and even if some people get the...

    F-104 vs. MiG-21

    Actually, the guy didn't realize he lost so much of a wing until he landed. If he'd known I highly doubt he would have attempted to land his wingless craft.

    The REAL Mace Missile

    Well, we probably won't be deploying said weapons, hopefully, against anyone in the near future.

    The REAL Mace Missile

    Don't forget the technology at the time. In the 50s and 60s missle technology was, at best crude. The success of the missile only F-4s in Vietnam proved this. If the Soviet Union was to launch a bomber attack that we believed they were capable of, you can't afford to miss. Also, we believed that...

    EPISODE 3 Discussion

    No, the Stormies in the movies are real humans not clones. However, I wonder how they got rid of a few million clone troops?

    4 year old killed from Mission Space ride

    How intense is this ride, as I know nothing about it. However, pulling 2Gs is nothing, I pull 2Gs all the time in my glider. I can't see how 2Gs could kill someone, even a 4 year old. I wouldn't be suprised if there was something more going on here that we don't know about, one article is not...

    EPISODE 3 Discussion

    While everyone whines about no Z-95's or Victory class Star Destroyers, has anyone noticed the Juggernauts in the Kashyk (don't know the right spelling) battle. They're not from the other movies, so GL does take things from other sources.

    RadioControlled WingC. "airplanes"

    The Morningstar would be a pain to build, but I agree that it would seem to be a very good flyer, and besides, it looks so sexy.

    RadioControlled WingC. "airplanes"

    You don't really need to worry to terribly much about physics with RC planes, just as long as you have enough survos to power the necessary control surfaces and a big enough enfine, you can make anything fly, as long as you take the time to build it.

    RadioControlled WingC. "airplanes"

    Whatever model design that is easiest for you to sculp. Also, it depends on how many servos you have. I'm a fan of the Morningstar, but I think a more blocky desihn like the Hellcat or Exalibur would be the best, just from the standpoint of easy desing.

    Real Mass Driver prototype

    I built a mass driver for my science fair project this year. The results were extremly dissapointing, but I got an A. We won't be blasting Kilrathi with them for some time I'm afraid.
