Help out the kids at U. of Md.

November 29, 2012 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

Want to bet on a sure thing? The kids at the University of Maryland that built Gamera II, a human-powered helicopter, have a chance to win $10,000 to defray expenses on their next attempt at the Sikorsky challenge in 2013. They challenge requires them to reach 10 feet during a one-minute flight and remain in a 10-meter area. Watch this video and vote for it so that they win the prize. Before investing your two minutes, here’s an incentive. They have already reached nearly 10 feet in altitude and have exceeded the one-minute requirement during earlier flights. They are a sure bet to do it in 2013 and you can say you helped. They crashed a couple of times and could use the money. Give’em a break. They’re just kids. Gotta help the next generation. Stuff like that.

    magnificent publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite experts of this sector do not realize this. You should proceed your writing. I am sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Article writing is also a excitement, if you know then you can write or else it is complex to write.

    An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto
    a colleague who has been conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me dinner because I stumbled upon it for
    him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this issue here on your website.
