Check out this prototype! Engineers at NASA’s Langley Research Center hope unmanned aerial systems like this GL-10 Greased Lightning will be able to fly like a plane and hover like a multirotor. The GL-10 recently flew successfully while tethered; full flight tests are planned in the fall of 2014.
About me: I’m a publishing professional who has a passion for aviation and RC, and I love creating issues, books and a website that help RC pilots to enjoy this sport even more. I admire scale aircraft and enjoy the convenience of flying smaller electrics.
