Thinking about one of these "Just Thinking"
« on: October 18, 2013, 12:45:57 PM »
Zipping around the other day, I saw this and checked the video out. This would be one way to blast the winter blazz on the snow. What you think guys?

I never flown a planker other than a sim. I'd be kind of curious to see if I could even fly something like this.
