Female Russian bombers

Female Russian bombers

Cool Photo Nightwitches – Female Russian bombers who bombed Germany during WW2. They had old, noisy planes & the engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid-flight to restart the props.

Advanced Aerobatics – The Torque Roll

Learning new maneuvers is something that many pilots enjoy and is one of the reasons we keep putting together these great aerobatic machines.  For most new pilots perfecting that aerobatic move  can take some time and the pilot will find that it will have a rather high learning curve.  Our videos are here to help […]

The astounding athletic power of quadcopters

[ted id=1764]   In a robot lab at TEDGlobal, Raffaello D’Andrea demos his flying quadcopters: robots that think like athletes, solving physical problems with algorithms that help them learn. In a series of nifty demos, D’Andrea show drones that play catch, balance and make decisions together — and watch out for an I-want-this-now demo of […]
Master the Elevator

Master the Elevator

One of the easiest first 3D moves to master is the elevator.  All you need to do is lower the throttle and let the plane come down, keeping it level by holding in some up-elevator. While it seems easy enough to do, it will take some practice to get it right. Check out the video and […]
