One of the craziest French modelbuilder happened to be a test pilot and the father of a colleague of mine. Some of his most famous ones are : flying wheelbarrow, Perrier bottle, toilet door, lawn mower, witch on a broom, clothes iron, etc.

a biography with some pics (http://www.chouette-club.net/explication/texte.htm)

The late Igor Sikorski reportedly said, (quoting from memory) "anything can fly, with a powerful enough enigne".
As a father of the uglycopter, he knew what he was talking about

I'm impressed. I want one.

Then again my skills flying RC aircraft are a bit rusty. I must get some of my old planes out and bush up.
