Flight Club

Two men and a child's toy. What could possibly go wrong?

A lot as it turns out.

We convened at a local park to shoot some pretty simple footage for another viral armed with a camera and this bad boy:

We naively assumed that a remote control plane would actually fly and be remotely controllable but clearly that's a stupid assumption. It soon turned out that getting the thing airborne was really difficult and keeping it in the air was nigh on bloody impossible.

After almost three hours of repeatedly recreating the opening scene from Lost in miniature and being laughed at by passing joggers, dog walkers and park based maniacs she finally flew - YES! -  only to land up in the nearest tree - NO!

Back to the drawing board.
