Rob,

What a great Gadget Freak Case video! I'll definitely being showing this one to my Capstone Class tonight. I plan to use it as a training video on how to present their project to the audience. 

I've been talking to my students about the Gadget Freak submission process. Waiting on a group of students to meet the challenge. I also have a couple of proto-designs I need to finalize for submission as well. Keep up the great work Rob!

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Which gloves?

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?
