IKEA Chair Modded Into Functional R/C Airplane

This is a video of the guys from Youtube channel FliteTest modding a cheap wooden IKEA Jokkmokk chair into a functional, flying R/C airplane (previously: a Little Tykes Cozy Coupe plane). It actually flies surprisingly well too. Me? I do not fly very well. Imagine the most annoying child you've ever experienced on a flight, then double that and add six cocktails, divide by having not eaten anything, and take that to the power of a man who's always dreamed of serenading all the passengers on a flight though the plane's loudspeaker with a song about being eaten by a giant metal bird, and you've got about half of me. *check math* A quarter of me.

Keep going for the video, but skip to 7:00 if you're just interested in the flight test.

Thanks to Wade, who informed me he once made an IKEA desk fly over a balcony after it refused to be assembled correctly. It happens.

    The best part is how happy they are at the end.

    That was a fun watch. Very ballsy drone maneuvs too

    Wright Brothers would be piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiissed if they could see this.

    They were technically minded people. They would probably be overwhelmed if they were suddenly transported to our current era but if they had lived to 147 and 157 and got to see what happened with aviation, top speed, etc they'd probably fucking love this shit.

    I heard of highchair, but a sky chair?

  • GeneralDisorder

    What about a drone throne?
