New attempt to win the Sikorsky Prize, the Gamera Human Powered Helicopter

 

Unfortunately I’m back from holydays, back to satellites and back to bikes! Even if I love the work I do, I prefer travelling and having a good time with my friends and my girl. Well, I’m human…

But after this short summer I’ve got a lot of things to do and some interesting news.
And talking about humans… Here’s a new human powered helicopter to beat the Sikorsky prize. One of my favourites challenges. The approach to the project it’s far from the idea I have to beat it, but it’s obviously good because it’s a new world record. If you work on the hover that offers the ground effect you won’t take off over 3 meters tall as the prize claims. But anyway I think that these guys have taken a good way just by attempting it. If they continue developing this helicopter they will reach a difficult record to beat.

You can read more here, in the article I’ve found in Gizmag.

Don’t miss the previous article about human powered helicopters and other vehicles.

At this moment we have no time and no money to attempt to win this prize but we’re working in other interesting prize that you’ll know soon!

Now motorbikes and e-bikes are the main focus of our work.
