F-107 Foam Park Jet - RC Groups Hello, I’m lucky enough to live right next door to the Pima Air and Space Museum and have always enjoyed walking through the many jets they have on display. The F-107A has always been a favorite of mine, with the great lines and wild intake position so I had to try it as a park flyer. Before I go any further I need to thank Steve Shumate (jettset44) for his great design and construction techniques used in his Park Jets(F-18, T38, Gripen etc...) that he has been nice enough to share with us. Their ease of construction and performance has inspired many of us to design new jets to fly, share and enjoy! Also I have to thank all others that have taken the time to share their planes and ideas with us.
Amazing second edition! More than 5000 entries were submitted from everywhere in the world by talented professional photographers and amateur drone photo enthusiasts. The competition was judged on creativity and photographic quality by a panel of experts including National Geographic photographer Ken Geiger (Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer) as well as Jean-Pierre Vrignaud, Editor in Chief of National Geographic France and Dronestagram. Electric Airplanes Will Change The Future Each year, over 3 billion people travel on airplanes. Worldwide, airplanes produced 689 million tonnes of CO2 in 2012. These numbers are expected to grow higher in the future. According to the Air Transport Action Group, the global aviation industry produces around 2% of all human-induced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Will These Giant Robots Do Battle? American MegaBot Challenges Japan’s Kuratas Mecha - Singularity HUB Two proud countries, two extraordinary warriors…one title. Just like Rocky IV. Only instead of Sly and Dolph, substitute a 15-foot, 6-ton American robot going toe-to-toe with a 12.5-foot, 5-ton Japanese mecha. In a YouTube video worthy of Don King, the makers of MegaBot just challenged Japan’s Kuratas to combat—bot-to-bot.

3D Printed & Carbon Fiber QuadCopter I've always loved aviation and flying machines, so when small RC helicopters and multicopters became affordable, I knew that I had to buy one. They're absolutely a blast, and it wasn't long before I owned multiple flying toys. Once you prop, you can't stop! Flying mini and micro quads quickly made me want a full sized, more capable quadcopter that could support a camera gimbal, lift a payload, or do FPV racing.

Unmanned aerial vehicle A group photo of aerial demonstrators at the 2005 Naval Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Air Demo. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. Its flight is controlled either autonomously by onboard computers or by the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle. The typical launch and recovery method of an unmanned aircraft is by the function of an automatic system or an external operator on the ground. Historically, UAVs were simple remotely piloted aircraft, but autonomous control is increasingly being employed.[not in citation given]
Robotics Researchers Create Mechanical Tentacles Capable Of Picking Up An Ant Without Crushing It This creepy robot tentacle could one day be fiddling with your veins. Researchers were able to use the tiny, but remarkably soft, robot ‘limb’ to pick up an ant by its waist without crushing it. This robotic limb has the potential to revolutionize microscopic surgery. The study, published in Scientific Reports, demonstrated how the robotic tentacle, which is a microtube made from a stretchy polymer, can gently curl around objects, pick them up and move them. These microtubes are seriously small, about the length of an average red ant and the width of a human hair.

Finkbuilt » Blog Archive » Kid’s Draw Bot As far as I’m concerned, you’re never too young to start mixing art with robotics. So, next time you and your budding young tinkerers need something to do on a rainy day, you should have no trouble scraping up the parts to put together this crude, drawing robot project that we saw at the Seattle Robotics Society Robothon. Update: Cathy Writes: There’s now a drone racing league that feels like pod racing from Star Wars Presidential candidate Donald Trump easily won the Republican Nevada primary with over 44% of the votes in early counting, in a election marked by complaints of fraud and chaos. He made a victory speech in front of a rowdy crowd dressed in “Make America Great Again” hats and t-shirts at his Las Vegas hotel, and expressed his love for everyone from casino mogul Steve Wynn to the “poorly educated.” He also offered up some more information about his plans should he be elected president, including keeping the Guantanamo Bay detention facility open and loading it up with “bad dudes.”
Spike S-512 The Spike S-512 is a projected supersonic business jet, designed by Spike Aerospace, an American aerospace firm based in Boston, Massachusetts. If produced, it would allow long flights for business and private travelers, such as from New York City to London, to take only three to four hours instead of six to seven. The company plans to promote the project with an exhibit at the 2014 EAA Airventure airshow. The aircraft will not have windows for the passengers, instead it will be lined with tiny cameras sending footage to thin, curved displays lining the interior walls of the fuselage. Spike expects to launch the plane by December 2018. Specifications Spike claims the jet will have a cruise speed of Mach 1.4-1.6.
