    when you said this thing flew... does the model really fly? or the real thing (if there is one)?

    you'll need to correct that url before using it, the software here seems to have been designed to mask where you're likely to be going on some links and I don't like that.

    Exactly, like what I said, it masks where you're going in terms of the website you're going to.:p

    Lex,
    The real plane flew, though not very well. It was very "tippy" due to being very topheavy. Don't know about a model, but they sell forced draft flying models.
