    A pub near where I used to work there were some bikers with nitrous fitted.

    This is the same guy who appeared on Russell Howards Good news program after he made the worlds fastest disability scooter by strapping a go-cart engine to it.

    I was at a model air show last week and they had planes powered by a proper turbine, they were proper scale military aircraft. They looked and sounded incredible when flying, they go to about 250-300mph and consume 1 gallon of karosene or Jet A1 fuel every 6 minutes! Got talking to the owner of a replica F15 and after a good chat about how the thing functions he told me it cost around £7k!

    I've seen those jets before and I'd love one. The noise they make is fantastic.

    Nice toy ! Sounds superb, must be tricky to control as you got to control it from the ground but account for its orientation relative to you.
