As ugly as this flying style is, it requires an enormous amount of skill from the pilot, a lot of motor power (which electric motors easily can deliver) and a battery that can provide this power without instantly exploding.
The 12 serial cell battery has about 51 V fully loaded (nominal value about 44.4 V) and the motor is between 10 kW - 14 kW. With the voltage more or less fixed, this power can only be supplied trough a high current.
Are you on your way to the store to get one already?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
Took the family to see A Quiet Place last night. You'd think that a film that had very little in the way of dialogue couldn't present much in the way of menace but it's a testament to the skill of a very small cast that they managed to enthral us all.
Haven't seen it yet. I must admit I like 'horror' films that make you uncomfortable rather than spraying blood everywhere. I liked the 'Blair Witch Project' for that very reason...it gave you a 'sense' of menance rather than this is the bad thing it will get you...
I would have to agree. I used to love gore-fest films but now, I prefer ones where they use acting to disturb you. The problem I have with the gore films is that I have long had a fascination with special effects so I find myself appreciating the art of the FX team, rather than enjoying the movie - it's hard to be shocked or scared when you are thinking, "Cool, so they used blood bags situated around the neck there". When a film relies on plot and dialogue instead, it's a lot easier to immerse yourself and jump when there are startling parts.
