ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

Well, Ed, (Construction Channel) You Were Ahead Of Your Time Weren't You?

I'm sure the rocket scientists on the forum can hack together a simple surface to air missile to deal with this.

And dear old Ed, Whirling Dervish that he is, is way ahead of the game.

well I have been known to be a bit of a trend setter B)
next thing you know they will stop shaving and start wearing braces :D

But without getting involved in the other thread i really can't see the point of it, what exactly are they hoping to see from a drone that they couldn't see from the road?

also what are the rules on shooting them down? not that i would but it would be good to know ;)

With a catapult (and we know how powerful they can be) - probably none. But I am not sure.

If you hit it with a catapult hard enough to bring it down I think that should at least be considered "good sport"
