Actually between TigerDirect and NCIX you can often find better deals than Newegg has, and that's saying something.

If we're repping brands, I'm a fan of Antec's cases... their full tower 1200 is pretty excellent. They get great airflow.

Brazil... close enough! :lol:

It would have been just "cool" and not "shocking" if there hadn't been a bunch of people standing directly where he was aiming his 300 kt missile full of jet fuel.

I could be wrong, but I'm told the core of a jet's exhaust that is actually damaging isn't much wider than the airframe. Any insight on that from the jet pilots around here? There's a version of this with the HUD tape here: http://gizmodo.com/5809436/exclusive-cockpit-video-of-the-craziest-flyby-eve...

Just something about it hides any minor errors in roll initiation better than when the jets roll towards the crowd (same goes for the Blues - who still roll away). I have to disagree, from a practical standpoint. One wing goes up, the other one goes down... not much difference in that regard, IMO! ...

Great plug, LD! Definitely interested to see what they come up with, I'm sorely in need of an upgrade.

Leave it to ED to make sure there's a slo-mo feature, but not rewind. :mrgreen:

There's a lot more to having a usable cockpit than making the model. :wink: TBH I think VTB's Viper model is at least that good... the one in the thread has some serious shaping issues in the nose and intake (and elsewhere.) Cool though.

Although, ideally, we'd be looking for an entirely alternate power source, rather than burning more hydrocarbons. Ideally. :lol:
