Sikorsky Firefly: An Electric Helicopter
Produced by Glenn Pew (http://www.glennpew.com/) for AVweb.com. It's at
nearly gross weight before the pilot steps in and can only fly for 15
minutes, but that's not the point. Sikorsky Innovations sees the Firefly as
a testbed for the technologies that may make for a real electric helicopter

Today: 22nd July 09
Last week we got the details. For the price of one Robinson R22 you could
buy nearly 5 of these and pay for all the training. But does it really fly
or is it just a model?

First9Tries to fly a Mosquito Ultralight Helicopter, GB103
After 10 hours of dual training in an R22, I try my new Ultralight
Helicopter. The last clip (#9) was almost a DR (Dynamic Rollover). I did
this 2 years ago and did not understand the danger or causes of DR, or how
to avoid DR, or what to do when DR is happening. So lucky to instinctively
lower the collective, ha, - wait, not luck, FEAR! Respect the danger.
