40mph is very fast for a heavy bike. My Trek is essentially a road bike, modded forks for wider tires...that was a mountain bike then. My 50mph on a flat strip was only for 3 seconds, it takes a lot...

Very efficient when you think of fact that a human was flying with the machine. If a plane weighed in at 150-200lbs, 1000W wouldn't get it rolling. I guess the huge blades and slow speed are the...

The wheel would allow for inertia. Judging by the vid, it doesn't seem easy to get the rotors turning, and the fact that they do turn at a slow speed, they can't have much inertia by themselves. With...

Spat's are what a number of pipe bands use over their standard dress shoes to give a white boot look. I've never used them myself, but are common pipe band language.
