My wife's first question was: "Where would we put it?"

Nerts, I hate it when she is right...

I still wished they had built the thing. I would have loved to see the test flight.

It's still at $5050! It would look really cool mounted to the roof, if the front yard isn't an option.

Disappointed to learn that the straps aren't included.
