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.
