This makes me think of something I saw recently:  the Israeli flying jeep.  Looking at it made me want to build a robotic version of it.<br><br><a href="http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/06/16/urban_aero_say_mule_test_imminent/">http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/06/16/urban_aero_say_mule_test_imminent/</a><br>

i&#39;m looking for something more maneuverable for air flight. at maker<br>
faire i saw some helicopters with two flying blades that looked nice.<br>
also, there were a lot of companies at both maker faire and robotwars<br>
selling kits. if someone could recommend some more companies selling<br>
kits of robots aimed toward engineering, that would be great.<br>
actually, lego mindstorm stuff doesnt look bad either.<br>
<br>
thanks,<br>
