Comfort the Disturbed! Disturb the Comfortable!

Back in the 1970's, I read an article about how a group of engineering students took an actual barn door (8' x 16' in size) and turned it into an actual, functioning RC flying machine, so I'm not surprised that the Avenger's heli-carrier is possible in small scale (plus, the 2nd video is pretty definitive in that respect).

That said, however, neither the physics nor the math in the first video were wrong, so a RL, full-sized heli-carrier is just not possible. The reason it's possible in small scale is that the RC version is largely hollow, making it vastly lighter than what it "should" be.

But you all know this already, so why am I explaining it??? scratch-head


And to comment on something I heard in the first vid...

This is the kind of crap they come up with in comic books, not Hollywood.

Um... Wasn't the Avengers a comic book? And isn't the movie BASED on a comic book? Undecided

That is a seriously good point.
