NEW SHOTGUNNING SPORT - And it was invented by the Brits, no less!

The ATS Gnat has been hugely popular in the UK for many years, and has
featured in events such as high profile celebrity charity shoots held
at most of Britain's most famous shooting grounds, to private parties
at country estates. The Gnat Shooting System is unique. Shotgun events
normally involve the downing of conventional targets such as clay
pigeons or game. We have perfected a high speed, maneuverable, radio
controlled drone which takes the sport to the next level. The aircraft
flies at speeds of up to 80 mph, with extremely rapid directional
changes and fighter like agility. Controlled by very experienced
"pilots", the shooters prey is probably one of the hardest targets
they will ever encounter.

As an RC pilot I've always thought it would be fun, and in fact had a cheapie "air hogs" plane in hand for a friends bachelor party, unfortunately walmart wouldn't sell it due to a recall (which obviously we didn't care about). I'm suprised it flies well enough with "armor" on the bottom of the wing, and those flash capsules.

Don't think I'd be willing to pay for it (I'd assume it's not cheap), but I'm glad they're having fun in whichever way they choose to.

Almost as much fun as Hunter S. Thompson's "shotgun golf.

How would you know who hits it if everyone is shooting at the same time?
