Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

That was really cool. I especially liked the emotional reactions of the participants who were involved. Their hardwork and dedication paid off.

Thanks for the post.

Another 40+ seconds and 4 more feet and Sikorski will give them $250,000.
I think they will do it!

It's an older video, but gives perspective on the size and layout.

They really need to find a bigger indoor area!! Looks like there is no control whatsover, just throttle input as in pedalling.

Also interesting how much higher they went with a man pedalling not a woman, hehe.

And need I even mention how much higher they would go with Lance Armstrong?? (He's proabably too heavy for that, they need a light & fit person.)

I say in 5 years you will be able to buy a kit and do the same thing, but it will be smaller!

Cycling, men tend to have approx 1.2x the power to weight ratio of women.

I agree; there was something to be desired as to where they tested.

Blanka, How is that video related to anything going on with this thread? The title of the thread is HUMAN POWERED HELICOPTER.
I can make an argument that a Eurocopter EC155 is also better, but unless it's powered by thrust-vectored Taco Bell farts, it has no business in a thread about HUMAN POWERED HELICOPTERS!
