How about a giant RC A-10 Warthog with a working airsoft cannon (VIDEOS)

How do you kill a foam board tank? With a flying foam board A-10 Warthog replica armed with the guts of a P90 airsoft gun, of course.

The guys at Flite Test, a YouTube RC aviation channel, built their A-10 from scratch by trial and error and armed it with an airsoft gun donated by Evike. Through the use of Glow-in-the-Dark BBs and an airsoft tracer kit loaded in a pretty big hopper, they can see where the rounds impact and adjust the plane’s aim accordingly.

Weighing in at 28 pounds, the third prototype A-10 takes to the air to destroy a giant moving cardboard tank they made while a P90-armed anti-aircraft team attempts to swat it from the sky.
