Its first time I ever seen one of these, it is remote control but its the wind that is making it move>

Mick, your FIFTY years behind the times. Same system as used by model aircraft, powered and glider. There were always a great many on the boating pool in Fleetwood, maybe still are.

Mick your fifty five years behind the times! Go to Fleetwood boating lake, I think people still indulge in this hobby.
