Seems like they could find something better to do with their spare time. That is like building a ship in the basement and not able to get it out. Attach a prop to a bicycle frame under a blimp is a better idea.
I see four rotorblades in ground effect that lift the pedal-powered machine off the gymnasium floor ..... nothing wrong with that .... i love what they have accomplished .... but my question is .... if the rotors were mounted above the booms would it lift off ????
I think not .... just a guess .... anyone have an opinion ? thanks. Ground effect is one thing .... powered rotors out of ground effect is something else .... esp. pedal powered.
I still really like the machine in the video ... and the organization of the ground crew who assisted ... I admire youth who attempt such things.
