    Az put forward this suggestion to me for a meet up this morning. And i have to say i think it'll be a real cracker of an event, and it's a little bit different from the usual type of meet up.

    The following is a bit of what it's all about....

    A uniquely loony competition, Red Bull Flugtag, involves manpowered flying machines and crazy pilots attempting to launch themselves off a 6m high ramp above the Serpentine and into the water below! Judged on the distance of your flight, the creativity of your machine and your pre-flight performance - the Red Bull Flugtag is most definitely the dream competition for crazy showmen with a desire to take to the skies in a very unique way!

    For more info on this competition/event click here.

    You will notice (on the site) that you can also enter this competition if you wish, although they need to have recieved all apillications by the 13th May.

    The actual event takes place in Hyde Park on Sunday 3rd August and admission is free.

    :)

    I hope people can come, cos it'll be an event to laugh at. Hopefully, the weather will be great and we can have a alco-picnic. :p

    It'd be great to make a human paper plane. LMAO

    we should definitely make an FFUK machine, the mother of all flying machines The MotherFFUKer

    No auxiliary lifting devices, power sources, or stored energy (e.g. elastic, batteries, clockwork springs, rocket fuel etc) can be used.

    Im actually quite interested in coming to this :eek:

    How about we take all the ego's of the FFUKer's coupled with everyone's hot air... we'd go for miles!

    doesn't matter what it looks like we have to figure out how to power it with Luke's ego, then nobody else would stand a chance :p

    I'm crap at technical things so i volunteer as pilot!

    EDIT: damn! Luke had the same idea as me!

    Remembering that we'll need to get a prospective machine to Central London...

    LOL @ shopping trolley with X-Wings. It'd be a push and let go job and a plummet into the water. LMAO.

    i think we should just put me in a chicken suit with really stiff wings at the back and i'll just run straight into the water. if it's windy i may go about 3 inches

    we need to have something star wars based. how about a landspeeder. it's not like the wings on any of them will make a difference, it's all down to how far you jump
