Hello Don, Eleanor:

Does somebody have the URL for the manufacturers of this new
little flying triangle?

Then we can see what is and is not being marketed.

I strongly doubt that some new and revolutionary physics is
being done for a small price at a store near you. There is a
Nobel Prize waiting for the first team to find a useful new
propulsive force, one that will penetrate a thin plastic bag
that is.

Best wishes
