I'm immediately struck by two things:
  1. The power:weight ratio of modern hobbyist RC is insane. Those rigs look like they can easily flip on acceleration.
  2. Seems like they're controlling the roll mid-jump with strategic blipping of the throttle

Yes & yes.

Very high performance brushless motors, best lithium polymer batteries @ 34V and controllers capable of routing more than 150A.
Easily over 5 horsepower, of electric power, on the red rig.

btw, the red rig is north of 30lbs. running

As a person with a relative with a disability, a pet can make a whole difference in their lives... don't know exactly why but pets can make an special bond with those persons that help them in ways many times humans can't............. thank god for pets......

not sure what to say about this one

Lol!! I thought it couldn't be done. I wonder how the flavor deviates from traditional cooking, would it be something similar o completely different from what we know? :au:

What was bvehind the great northeastern power blackout of 2003. Really well done with lots of detail and animations that show how the events cascaded.

Here is one with entertaining elements AND retains credibility. Video is 5 minutes 30 seconds.
