Paraglider Electric Bicycle Transportation Vehicle (not kidding : see 1:16):
A lot of nerdy electric microcar fans apparently, so here's another one. I want his factory floor to build stuff in:
I think I'd rather want an electric motorcycle myself. Enclosed Electric varieties.
Not electric, but this 1964 Honda S600 with superbike engine is more my speed... Jay doesn't want to give it back. I'd put a Hayabusa in a cute MG Midget, but oh the engineering headaches to make things fit. Old school look but not exactly an Ariel Atom
Look what I found, a 1930 Volmer Jensen VJ-24w, 50 years before Volmer did it
Super tall cacti...
Check out the ground clutter at 2:55...
Not affordable, but interesting to watch, esp. on scrub mode - lasar rust removal:

$250 to join, $99 per month membership fee, and $149 per flight.
But just how is any of this legal here in the US!? Even if they found a sympathetic FAA person to say it's a legal part103 "powered lift" it looks like it exceeds the weight limit - even with the amphibious weight adds?
A lot of neat old old pictures.... esp. of the funky early multiwing designs... hidden behind a Wright Bros website... turned up by one of my funky google image searches:
Aerial drones... or aero-dromes.... which is correct terminology? you decide
1903 Manly-Balzer Engine - Side View
I think they figured out how to get kids into aviation. Make pilots, not spectators.
I'd practice on that basic one at 2:25. I think it's a LAK-16. Wiki.
Clinker boat building / wood working methods...

Not Bazooka Charlie...
Just to see how hard it is to be a test pilot...
Some people really know how to enjoy Saturday flying...

CG-- I did trouble shooting, and maintained and overhauled these 800 ton stamping presses for VW of America for many years. Stamped for the VW Rabbit, Dodge trucks , Ford, and GM. The Rabbit was about 50% of the stamping. Also designed the automation ( robots) for these presses. I know every part in these. Also the draw presses.
Also the Weingarten (German) stamping presses.
I could learn lots of new tricks watching this guy
