A 7-Foot, Fire-Breathing, Jet Engine R/C Flying Dragon

This is Rick Hamel's 'Mythical Beast', a seven-foot R/C dragon (with a nine-foot wingspan) powered by a turbine engine that even breaths fire. Man, you wanna know the worst thing is about breathing fire while you're flying? The risk of melting your face off. Because one time I tried to spit while I was running and hit myself in the eye. Then I got pink eye and got to stay home from school for a week and watch the shit out of The Price is Right. It might have been the best thing that ever happened to me. OR WILL EVER HAPPEN. Just saying, you ever laid in the bath holding a toaster over your head hoping your life will flash before your eyes? No? Me neither then, that would be weird.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots, a video of the dragon in flight, and one of its fire breathing abilities, and an interview with Rick about the thing.

Thanks to Terry, who tried to tell me he was a more pro dino-lover than I am BECAUSE HE BOUGHT ONE F***ING CANADIAN DINO COIN. Get real bro! I have like a whole roll of those things in my ass.
