Oh, I wish, I wish, I wish

By Donald Sensing

Speaks for itself:



What is so impressive about this is how powerful the flying-human machines are. I hobby fly a Syma S033G radio-controlled helicopter, which is a fairly large machine as these go. It is extremely sensitive to the wind and even a gentle breeze makes it difficult to maintain headway. In stronger than a gentle breeze I simply don't try.

I am imagining the constant wind that must blow over the Hudson river and how well these machines perform nonetheless. Two things are sure: they are powerful and they ain't cheap.
