    Ditto to the first comment, my kid dream was to add aircraft and perhaps even ground combat — any thoughts on adding other RC vehicles? I’m thinking you’d need to set up some bunkers if you have aircraft actualy dogfighting. Well done, very cool!

      The only problem I can see with adding ground vehicles is that they’ll, probably, sink…
