Does anyone have one of these?
How stable are they? I can't imagine they fly very straight being made from a vinyl balloon.
Any info anyone can give me would be would be greatly appreciated.

Imagine farting into a sock. That's THE DUDE in five words or less. :rolleyes:

I've seen Dudes fly twice. Both got holes burned in them and went limp as they left the pad. Not one of the more successful ideas from the Estes think-tank. ;)

How often do your coffee cups break? :p

I've looked at those a couple of times and thought I might actually try one from scratch later on. Looks like it might be fun. :)

From the one I've seen fly, farting into a sock and lighting it might fly better.

Nuke summed up EXACTLY what I have seen of the DUDE also.
A total TURD !
I think it would be more interesting to INHALE one's OWN farts than see one of these fly, and that is NOT something I'd like to do !

It's far more versatile than that. If you can find some Trojan decals it can also be a family planning joke. :eek:

You could make a really subtle joke out of it by pasting a USC decal on it.

I wonder if USC would appreciate that one. :D

USC might not appreciate it, but it WOULD be deserving.
Based on the all the sports-talk hype before the Rose Bowl one would not have thought Texas had a snowball's chance in Hades to win.

Actually I'm glad when any team other than one from Florida or "Environmental-Whacko we-have-WAYYYY-too-many-liberals" Commiefornia wins the national title. :p :p
