LEGO have many creative uses outside their intended hobby kits, but aeronautics isn’t one of them. Until now, that is.

YouTuber PeterSripol took it upon himself to build what he believes is the first LEGO radio-controlled plane. And with good reason: the thing flies like its being piloted by a college freshman stumbling back from their first frat party. Likely the raised ridges that allow LEGO to snap together are aerodynamically disastrous, so it’s a feat that Sripol got it to fly at all.


The brickbuilding obsessives will be glad to know he documented the entire construction of his plane, mistakes and all. Casuals can skip ahead to the test flights around the 10 minute mark.
