    Anybody tried attaching a smoke bomb to their bird and doing a little skywriting? I guess the hard part would be the space between words and crossing Ts. Might be fun though ;)

    Cool idea.

    Prop-wash would likely make it difficult even on calm days.

    Maybe have the bomb on a long line. at any rate, patterns in the sky would be kinda neat.

    Now that I think about it, I'd just like to use Orbit and make a gigantic smoke ring in the sky.

    Use waypoints to write text. :)

    That was the first post. :sunglasses: The hard part would be how separate words. Even cursive has its limits.
