Amazing. I'll bet he could make around town versions for Palm Springs. You could make a "Reeses" commercial out of it :

John: Hey, you got your RC glider stuck in my catamaran-car!

Jane: Hey, you got your catamaran-car stuck in my RC glider!

John and Jane: Hey, look at how fast they're going!!!!
