Probably one of the coolest RCs I've ever seen...right up there with the B-52.

USS Enterprise/NCC-1701

(Made it go faster...theoretically *g*)

I'm not even a Trekkie and I thought that was pretty cool.  Just how fast is a warp factor of 0.0000000000000000000000000001 anyways?

I'm guessing about as fast as that thing was flying.  I just randomly pushed zero for awhile.  I did not do any calculations.  LOL

Um [pushes taped glasses up nose] why in the United Federation of Planets are they using a ST:NG theme while flying the Enterprise A?!?  HELLO? [nerd head explosion]

Weight balance must have been a bitch on that.  I built a number of Enterprise model kits in the day, and the damned saucer section would fall off every damned time. 

I've been waiting for just this kind of RC thing.  I hope someone picks it up and sells it.  The only things I'd want more would be 2) an X-Wing (I'd say TIE, too, but that just doesn't seem like it could fly without ripping to shreds) or 1) the Millenium Falcon.

I'll push my taped glasses up even higher.

[Threepio]But sir![/Threepio]  At that speed it would take 10^69 millennia to travel one millimeter, by ST:Next Generation warp speed calculations, unless I screwed up the math.

Hmm, I think I screwed that up somewhere.

I'm more confident about this number, though. A typical RC plane flies at around 25mph, which by Next Generation equations would be warp factor 0.000017.

Because the TNG theme was originally the TMP movie theme. Tongue

Although I guess he should of used it from TMP rather than the TNG intro.
