Coreflute Real Estate signs is probably a good one, a reuse of material.
Combat video of 'Century 21' taking out Russian assets, might cause concern :-)

 

With modern brushless motors and lithium batteries power is not so much an issue.

 

On further thought, I wonder if its NOT really cardboard ? Unless you can see the flutes.

 

Foamboard is far better strength to weight and formable material.
Not so much the Art stuff you find here, but the stuff used below that has less dead weight.

Totally off-topic, but the speed record for RC planes is 835 kph, counterintuitively held by a glider, using the principle of dynamic soaring. How they even manage to see this thing, let alone control it is beyond me.

You can't misstake the accent.

A volunteer soldier from New Zealand storms a Russian position and detains a man in basement.
About to clear the basement with a grenade they hear "Ya Ukrayinets!" (I'm Ukrainian).
Cautiously concerned about a trap they investigate.

 

After a few seconds, the detainee recognizes him & screams “Novaya Zealand”? Turns out, it’s a Ukrainian friend whom the Russians held captive for months.

Heavily starved for two months and forced to drink anti freeze for entertainment, he barely looked like the man I knew a couple of months ago.

The Pentagon said a Russian fighter, a SU27, strike a US drone's propeller, without destroying itself or the drone.

Apparently there's more to the story

U.S. Naval Institute’s online news:U.S. MQ-9 Drone Crashes in Black Sea After Collision with Russian Fighter; Recovery Options Unclear

he Pentagon is not yet saying whether the U.S. will try to recover an unmanned MQ-9 Reaper aircraft that ditched into international waters Tuesday after a Russian Su-27 aircraft collided with it midair over the Black Sea.

The Russian Su-27 was one of two Russian fighters that intercepted the MQ-9 in what U.S. European Command is calling an “unsafe and unprofessional” fashion, according to a Tuesday release.

A sad Mariupol anniversary. 
Russia have literally paved over this by filling basement with concrete and demolishing the building.

Putin and Krill you keep what you kill.

https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/icc-judges-issue-arrest-warrant-against-putin-over-alleged-war-crimes-2023-03-17/

 

"In its first warrant for Ukraine, the ICC called for Putin's arrest on suspicion of unlawful deportation of children and unlawful transfer of people from the territory of Ukraine to the Russian Federation."

"While it is unlikely that Putin will end up in court any time soon, the warrant means that he could be arrested and sent to The Hague if travelling to any ICC member states."

 

And there are 123 member states.

I suppose he could be captured in international waters, in a yacht. But I suppose Russia could try the same thing with Biden in Air Force One, with the same results.

At least, we can play video games while we wait.

Like Twitter, Russia's Roscosmos is suddenly not good at paying the rent.
Funny that...

 

Kazakhstan Seized Roscosmos Assets at Baikonur...End of an Era?
Anton Petrov

There was supposed to be a new Rocket design using non-toxic fuel and launchpad , but its fallen over.

 

Russia did leave quite a mess behind in Kazakhstan.

 Finally in October 2012, Kazakh, Russian, and American nuclear scientists and engineers celebrated the completion of a secret 17-year, $150 million operation to secure the plutonium in the tunnels of the mountains.[5]

Dimitry Rogozin the prior head of Roscosmos and far right Russian politician.
Moved onto running one of the occupied areas of Ukraine where he had an explosive car accident.
He has been a bit quiet since then.

Yeah, I've suggested that too, a year-long active war with a third of a million people as casualties isn't tensions in 2022 any more.
