I come to find solutions for cars that can't be parked on uneven payment or can't be driven in the rain. :D
2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

I don't like to point out aspects of my own art, but...that entire scene was staged on black imitation leather. It ain't worth doing if you can't make it classy...

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

If you zoom in enough, you can get a better shot of Gnat's balls.

Man, I was on the ragged edge of keeping Spiff aloft during his cruise...I was pulling 80% throttle just to maintain altitude, and if you've ever flown ANYTHING with a suspended, swinging load...phew. the load flies the aircraft.

Now that the proof of concept works, I'll print him a platform and bust out the carbon fiber props and take ol' Spiff up to 400 feet.

Damn. I know you talk about that quad being pretty powerful, but knowing how heavy Spiff is I'm impressed that you could trail him behind perfectly horizontal like that!

So the prop blades are flexible? That surprises me. Safety requirement or making props more crash worthy?
