A team of students from the University of Maryland came up with this insanely big flying machine that’s powered by a single person sitting in the center and pedaling as if they were on a bike. The flying machine is called Gamera II and it has 4 rotors which lift the 71 pound craft into the air. Not very high (just about 2 feet), but still off of the ground.

‘Hame’ is the fruits of a great few days spent with Angus Sung in my hometown and the surrounding Glasgow area. Hame follows myself and James Wright as we track out of Glasgow and into the Campsie glens climbing for the majority of the ride. The filming of it had a little more poignancy since its likely to be my last time at hame or in the UK for a while and I really appreciate Angus capturing that. It’s also a great opportunity to introduce James Wright who will be repping the 5th in Scotland. I did a brief bike check on his Kagero some time ago but you can expect to see and hear more and more on James as he flys the banner for us. Big shout out to Chris for being the driver on this one!
