Welcome to the et.com-forum.

Looking forward to seeing you Skydiver swim and probably dive? You know, all ships can sink - but submarines have the advantage of being able to emerge again...

Welcome aboad maninblack. Someone posted a link here a little while back of an RC Skydiver on You Tube that did actually dive! It was great!

Welcome, maninblack. Should be a very impressive craft when it's finished. I look forward to seeing further pics as construction prgresses.

Has anyone ever seen an R/C Sky 1 that actually flies? It looks good on screen, but I don't know if you could get that shape airborne for real.
