Re: Video - Can You Fly ?

I like his comment at the end "Well I came extremely close on that one." Understatement of the year IMO. As for me I'll stick with something safe like sailing on the water.

Re: Video - Can You Fly ?

Wow, coming from a former hang glider pilot, that was just nuts on so many levels. First, with that short of a wing span, I'm guessing speeds in the 150 mph range at least. The fact the filming was done with a GoPro, we all know how wide angle they are, so all those close calls with the deck, cliffs, and trees were even closer than they seemed. I loved the video, but I would never do it. In fact when I flew hang gliders, the only part I truly enjoyed was the flying clear of terra firma, my least enjoyable was take offs and landings.

"Not available in your country", I guess us in the States will have to use our imagination.

That stuff is completely insane! How do they stay airborne, you'd think the sheer size and weight of their balls would cause them to drop like lead....

Re: Video - Can You Fly ?

sorry, Try searching youtube for Transformers flying suits or skydiving and you should be able to find something.

I'll be glad when I'm out of Germany. Lots of stuff is blocked for me.
