Best shedding ever

It was sunny in Fl*rida but raining foam in the upper atmosphere.

Shedding on sts-127 (0 min 18 sec)

We expected the 6 tank refills to make quite a shedding & sure enough, the tank shed like a snowstorm. NASA predictably insisted foam shedding was not a problem, the debris looked doubled because of shadows, & it only caused small scuffs.

The voters predictably did exactly what they were told & shut up.

Oh yeah. NASA tested it to 6 thermal cycles without seeing any shedding. Didn't U get the memo about those tests? Why wouldn't NASA be perfect?

The smallest copter in the world was the

It flew for 30 seconds on a charge. 4 years after the Wowwee flytech, ornithopters R a no brainer. People build insect sized ornithopters all the time. U might as well go for something bigger & longer flying.

The mane problem with shrinking a tri rotor by overlapping blades is blades hitting shafts in a crash. With EDF40's, U need a lot more room for the ducts & they're real expensive to crash. The smallest tri rotor would be 7".

Any spin copter would be brushed, over 5", & use a custom 900Mhz radio on the same board.
