Home-made helicopters hit northern Nigeria - Yahoo! News
I wonder if it is a D series engine ^_^.
I foresee 4 people getting killed...
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.
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.
dead nigerians = less spam emails
I would SO build and fly that shit
Even at 15 feet.
you wouldn't even have a clue on where to begin.....
a little test....
without googling it!!!!
ohhh I could list on and on....
don't make it sound that complicated, it's a flying civic. prolly riced out judging by the color.
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
a little test....

Asshole. Now give me rudder and run away, chicken ass
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.
so would my airboat pointed skywards reach 7 feet?
WTF did this entire forum become fucking hysterically funny today, or do i need to get some normalizing meds? i can't stop laughing!!
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.
