Some of our most inventive and colorful gadgets come from young engineers in training. This gadget was created by a team of engineering students. We've had a number of gadgets developed b student teams from both Colorado State University and Southern Methodist University. We've even had a number of gadgets submitted by a 15-year-old student. Keep your eyes out for an upcoming slide show featuring gadgets from budding engineers.

What fun! Maybe I missed it, but what gloves were used? I don't see them on the parts list. If not a specific brand, what type and material is best?

If ever there was a Gadget Freak that was bound for glory, this is it. I expect to see all but the most traditional RC flyers using this in ten years.

Really nice gadget, I just wonder how hard it is to control? Seems like it might be hard.

We didn't use any specific gloves.  The gloves in the video an pictures were found at the local thrift shop. Tighter ftting gloves would probably work better than loose ones because it makes it easier to push the control buttons on the left hand.

It is a beautiful concept. I would be really interested to try it out. By the looks of it, flying the plane looks effortless. However, I wonder if something like this can become mainstream.

I wonder if you have to clap your hands twice to start it and stop it?

An inside loop requires a backflip and an outside loop is a handspring.
