I remember seeing a kids toy laser vest advertised on tv. I can't remember the name. Something like laser tag.

From what I've read about the park flyer version is that a hit causes temporary electric motor cutoff.

I'm sure the system could be modified for an air gun so the gunner would get the rat-a-tat to go with a pulsed laser. Maybe a hit counter could be added to the onboard system to measure post flight accuracy.

With an array of sensors, you could score kill shoots versus damage and limp home shots.

Laser hits


It sounds like this may have possibilities, such as installing an interface cable between the receiver and throttle servo. When a hit takes place the plane goes to idle (1ms or 2ms signal depending on reverse switch), and red lights flash on the plane.

Great ideas, keep them coming.

Yes, and I have some " 'murican" colleagues whose idea of a good time is to take a few six packs of suds and a case of dynamite out into the desert and blow things up. Jest a tad extreme!
