Preparing for some offshore action! :-) It's always a challenge to fly from boats, especially in a strip of 300 - 400 meters from the shore where the water is rougher. Boat bumps at higher speeds and it may be the better strategy to touch the controls just lightly and even let go for split seconds. With some experience it works nicely. Starting remotely from the beach works well, too, even though it feels pretty awkward not to really see the heli. Cool stunt action upcoming. Hope to find the time to get it through post soon. Tough times after that theft case in Bulgaria (which insurance does not cover).

Thanks a lot for following us - appreciate it as much as every.

WHAT? WORLD RECORD?? - ... MORE LIKE A JOKE!

Can you believe it: a Norwegian student team set a Guinness record "Heaviest payload lifted by a remote-controlled multicopter". What'd they do? Spend 18 months on building a 76 kg multicopter that can lift 61 kg for 37 seconds. Hmmm!?!

The HeliGraphix HULC experiment has lifted the same weight, both HULCS together weighing not more than 12 kg. And then ... when speaking of multicopters, the Volo-Copter has long before lifted 60 kg. Sure, these guys may not have claimed a Guinnes record (neither did we). But it's kind of embarrassing then that the student team claims such a record despite knowing better, don't you think?

Anyway, it's another proof of principle and thus worth a post. So check it out!

WE'VE SEEN A NUMBER OF COOL DUDES AND DESIGNS ...

... over the past months. None of them was really practical or worked on a larger, usable scale. But we're so early into the development of 'personal aircraft' that - just like in the early days of aviation - what counts is the proof of principle. From the many nice ideas some will prove fruitful in the long run. It's hard to predict what the world will look like in 25 - 50 years from now. Except one thing: the skies will be WAY more crowded than today. And that's gonna be pretty cool ... :-)

THE ONLY THING MORE DIFFICULT ...

was when we flew from those tanks going off-road. They said you cannot fly from a fast boat. It shakes too much, you cannot take-off, and neither can you land. That's exactly why we gave it a try ... and realized that indeed it was quite true. We didn't give up though - and the result's a cool video in a beautiful environment. Enjoy the ride! thumbs up for the landing please! :)

WHAT'S THE SECOND BEST THING AFTER R/C?

Answer is easy: a remote-controlled electric skateboard. Fun, useful, environmentally friendly, and cool as hell. Thought it won't cover distances? Well, then let's see what we've got. This review covers over 1,500 km (~1,000 miles) on the Evolve Carbon All-Terrain. Have fun watching!
