Last summer a team from the Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland created a human-powered helicopter called Gamera, and managed to get it off the ground for 11 seconds. Not bad. But yesterday their Gamera 2 managed to stay airborne for a solid 50 seconds, smashing the world record. It looks exhausting, but I wanna try.
