Nova-Spies That Fly


It has no pilot, no windows, and it s flown by remote control. But this odd-looking plane is already credited with helping destroy nearly 750 enemy targets. It s the Predator, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) equipped with powerful surveillance cameras that spy on our enemies day or night and keep our military personnel out of harm s way. The Predator is changing America s battle plans, and more advanced UAVs are close behind.From flying spies the size of a CD player to fully armed pilotless jets that roam halfway around the world, get a close look at the revolutionary UAVs from the past 50 years, including the Lightning Bug, Pioneer and Predator. Follow military specialists, scientists, and engineers as they examine some of the revolutionary vehicles currently under development, such as the Global Hawk, a long endurance jet programmed to fly itself from takeoff to landing.Join NOVA for this rare look at some of the most significant developments in military weaponry, and learn about the UAV s dangerous and costly history, how flying insects are helping researchers create the first micro UAV, and how the military s unmanned aerial vehicles may someday lead to pilotless commercial air travel.Format: DVD MOVIE

  It poses a big challenge for beginners to learn to control Radio Control helicopter. Because the radio controls used to operate a Radio Control helicopter are virtually identical to the ones used to control a real helicopter, considerable practice is required in order to learn to balance Radio Control helicopters properly when hovering.

   Read every page of the instruction manual that accompanied your Radio Control helicopter kit when you bought it. You will need to have a good working knowledge of your Radio Control copter’s moving parts in order to master the difficult task of finding balance while hovering.

Familiarize yourself with the radio control unit for your helicopter before you head out into the field unlike the indoors RC helicopter Consult your instruction manual if you need further explanation on the exact functions of the controls included.

Put your RC helicopter on the ground (grass, ideally, in case you crash) about 5 to 7 feet in front of you. Make sure the nose is pointing away from you, and the helicopter’s tail is nearest you.

Use the radio control unit to bring the helicopter ‘up to speed,’ meaning to get its blades rotating fast enough for lift-off while maintaining ground stability. Note that this step itself may require considerable practice to perform properly.

Use the throttle on your radio control to give the RC copter the extra kick it needs to become airborne. Pull back on the amount of throttle you’re applying once the copter is about 1 foot off the ground, giving it just enough juice to stay in the air. Make every effort to keep it in the same spot. This will be difficult, especially for beginners.

Release the throttle (also sometimes called the ‘collective’) so the helicopter returns to the ground. Make a note of what you did right and where things went wrong. Keep trying. Flying an Radio Control helicopter is not easy, and newcomers can become discouraged very quickly. The more you practice, the easier it will get.
