Dynamic Soaring Animation

Hi,

since this is asked from time to time, I made an animation that explains the physics of dynamic soaring in simple terms:

DYNAMIC SOARING EXPLAINED (1 min 23 sec)


The target audience are laymen who just want to know how it works. So it intentionally doesn't go into fluid mechanics and how to achieve the best performance in real world, but rather tries to explain the core principle by analogy to a simpler mechanism.
