1) Sprint hard out of the apartment, down three flights of stairs, and out the front door to the sidewalk. It would likely take just over 15 seconds unless I didn't care whether I tripped on the stairs and broke something I like.

2) Launch myself off the balcony and grab a handful of branch on my way down. Probably doable in under five seconds, but has an unacceptably high level of risk of mortality and/or paralysis.

I'll say "no", then.

R/C hovercraft, will need to charge the batteries though, and perhaps get some new ones since the accu pack degraded somewhat over time.

Yep, I cut the tops off and keep stationery in them. Resourceful, or possibly just a little weird. Either way, they're handy and I like to think it's good eco-karma.

b) I can salvage parts (I can't)
