    haha, the new one will fly at 15 feet, and he wants his government to look to him for new helicopers? i think hes too far ahead of himself.

    "I watched action movies a lot and I was fascinated by the way choppers fly. I decided it would be easier to build one than to build a car," he said pacing the premises of the security division of the university which he uses as hanger for his helicopter.

    lmao

    wow. Guy gets it 7 feet off the ground and wants the government to buy shit from him? c'mon.

    Got to hand it to him, but he's a little too confident.

    I doubt it takes professional flight training to get that pile of shit to 15 feet.

    I'm pretty sure I could do it. I'd at least give it a shot, I kick ass at flight sims.

    i wonder why it only flies at 7 ft
    the craft should have the same mass at 7 or 70 feet

    unless its just too unstable to go beyond that

    Bingo.

    I doubt this thing has gyros or any way of stabilizing itself. Does it even count as a helicopter? I could point an airboat straight up and get to seven feet, does that mean the government should give me contracts for aircraft design?

    the only gyro's in a real helicopter is for the instruments. (unless Guido is flying, and he has a lunch with him)

    and...yes...Celerity does have some clue....ground effect does play a lot in the mix of things.

    a 7 feet off the ground you'd be safe to fly over the savana, but not dikembe mutombo. Though not from nigeria, but from nearby Zaier.
