Team Gamera is back with the Human Powered Helicopter and is flight testing their modified version of Gamera II at the PG Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, MD. Scroll down for video…
With new pilot and incoming UMD Freshman Henry Enerson, a maximum altitude test flight was attempted.
Henry smoothly pedaled Gamera up to just over 8 feet (2.5 meters) altitude and had a controlled descent for a flight time of about 25 seconds.
This is not an “official” record but is certainly the highest a human powered helicopter has ever reached.
