    Scotty, give me that power!

    Guy on the Fly Baby Facebook page asked if anyone had ever tried warp drive on their Fly Baby.

    I realized too late he'd meant, "a warp drive PROPELLER."

    Oh, well.



    It's a little unstable around Warp 6.1.....

    I've giv'n her all she's got captain, an' I canna give her no more.

    Those have gotta be some wondrous wires on those wings. Come to think of it, that wing fabric must be held on with Gorilla Glue Stellar. Then I realized with the open cockpit pilot, it almost looks like the Tesla, so I guess you're not too far off.

    So when your Flybaby is in outer space... is it called flying? Or hanging? Or what?

    A base canard. Space is 99.99999999% vacuum... nothing, in other words. How can a nothing have a temperature?

    The sunglasses were a good decision, it also gets very bright out there.
