    I was desperately searching for a thread that I could post the following in as I was so surprised when I realised it's never been posted on anywhere on the forum before! Anyway the closest thread I thought my post might fit in at least vaguely was this one, so I digress, I'm talking about the amazing Survival Research Laboratories and the amazing work of Mark Pauline. A friend introduced their work to me years ago by giving my a couple of old VHS tapes produced by SRL. Has anyone here heard of them before?

    I'll add a quote from their wiki page:

    I'm willing to bet he doesn't have the driveline flexibility to prevent it from shaking itself to pieces - particularly where the undersized rotor blades attach to the drive shaft.

    I'm curious as to why he didn't build himself a gyrocopter - a much simpler and safer DIY rotor-winged craft.

    He's basically built a big fan. Hope it keeps him cool.

    Very good live act that I'd recommend seeing if he's gigging anywhere near you... uses a mechanical drum machine he built himself from a cadillac wheel:
