Human-Powered Helicopter

In an attempt to win a currently unclaimed prize of $250,000, Bowen-Davies and dozens of his fellow students from the University of Maryland are attempting to build an entirely human-powered helicopter that can reach a height of 10ft and stay within a 10-meter wide box. The prize is being offered by The American Helicopter Society to anyone who can achieve the engineering feat, but for over three decades no one has been able to step up to the plate. Watch the video above to see how they get on.
