I went over and looked at the video. That is an impressive machine. I
would bet it is a whole lot cheaper to build and operate than a
helicopter. It might have some practical applications where helicopters
cannot compete. I really like the simplicity of the concept.
A tip of the AMRAD hat to your son's godfather. He is an AMRAD type and
is actually building something noteworthy. If he ever makes it to the
Washington area I would buy him an order of tacos just to get to meet
him and shake his hand. Maybe I could even get a chance to meet and
greet on one of my trips to Boston when I visit my daughter.
