Flying while cycling
OK - who fancies trying to beat the new world record for human powered helicopter flights? Yesterday the Gamera team at the University of Maryland flew their craft for 65 seconds. And in another flight the pilot pedalled hard enough to hover 8 ft off the ground.
If we are quick and glue together a few carbon tubes and add a decent power train, we could match both achievements at the same time and claim the AHS Sikorsky Prize.
C'mon - who's gonna join me?
