    Looks cool, but what exactly makes this a political, religious, and/or social issue?

    I was unsure if this was the proper forum to post it in or not. It isn’t PRSI, per se, but might be able to get away with it as ‘social-related’ haha. If it’s moved to another forum, that’s fine.

    Read about it a little bit a week ago, seems the military interest is out there. I am sure the military is fantasizing about hover soldier assaults and invasions.

    (although getting shot in the fuel backpack could get a little hectic)

    It wouldn't be the first time they've experimented with something like this.

    I was wrong. However, I'm still suspicious because he's being very coy about releasing any new videos, saying he "relase one per month" or something like that. Anyway, pretty cool.
