    Picked this up awhile back from LetGo. It has a made in China sticker on it, I haven't been able to determine the actual type of plane...but I haven't really looked too hard...the numbers on it do not seem to be anything other than random numbers. The three blade props are original and made it look really nice as a 3D addition...I wanted them to turn though...i added some 12 volt geared motors to it...about 45rpm....I am powering them with a wall wart and used a 3.5 mm jack so.i can easily unplug it. I added some 3d printed nose cones...was thinking of lights...but I haven't made up my mind yet...

    Counter rotating was a must.

  6. Maybe add some engine sound and bombs going off in the distance and lights near the bottom flashing like explosions. oh, radio talk, I could keep on going. but will shut up now, :D

    I won't turn it on when the special needs people visit....which means you may never see it running
