Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Nice!
Really micro quad-copter. I think I had never seen such a small one.
I like the typical Christmas scene of using the presents in pyjamas   Wink

This is the Hubsan H107L.   It's pretty sweet for only $45 - I bought mine on Amazon.  Apparently, it's the same as the traxxas qr1 which I could not find in stock, so I went with this one.   It's been a lot of fun.

If you decide to get one, I recommend getting the propeller protector for indoor flying - it's another $7.

and, yes,it is very very small.  I was a bit surprised by the size, but it does a great job flying.  It's actually easier to fly outside (less obstacles) and can easily fly 2x higher than the house in a second or so - astounding speed.  Battery lasts around 8-10 minutes or flying.
