Man I agree. While it is neat, it is not what this hobby needs. These things are already dangerous enough without BB guns mounted to them. I wont waste my money on it just because its a crappy chinese coax.

Procrastinators of the world unite ... tomorrow.

I totally agree. That's just a BAD idea. There's already enough reasons to shut us down. This will just add an additional problem. And, a potentially serious one.

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!

I also agree its a bad idea but unfortunately just by giving it pubicity Good or Bad might have the opposite effect and increase sales. You can't fix "stupid"

Governments have to stop companies from making these kinds of dangerous toys.

Well the ad says "shoots BB Balls" which I doubt are real metal BBs...by the looks of it, it's prob. plastic balls.

What's the difference between this and a bb gun you can pick up from Wal-Mart or an RC tank that shoots things out of it?

Don't think it'll shut down the hobby just yet.

Life is tough, it's tougher if you're stupid

While we're at it, we should also wrap ourselves in pillows and wear Nerf helmets and line the streets with bouncy soft rubber and and drive in small nerf cars and drive no more than 1mph to prevent any injury that could be sustained

I can think of Armalite and General Dynamics just to name a couple.

Its only a toy helicopter that shoots out little ball bearings.

You'll put your eye out, kid.

Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for Radio Control Helicoptering.

I've seen the "Air Soft" BB shooting tanks for a while but that's the first heli.

I gotta say,I think it's kinda cool
I can't really think of a reasonable application other than showing your buddies..."Hey,it really shoots!!!" lol

I won't be buying one but I see nothing really wrong with it.
Let's keep the governments regulatory powers to a minimum in our personal lives and hobbies

I literally never use the word literally right.
