Team Gamera is back and flight testing their modified version of Gamera II Human Powered Helicopter at the PG Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, MD.

With new pilot and incoming UMD Freshman Henry Enerson in the cockpit, a maximum altitude test flight was attempted. Needless to say we were not quite expecting what happened next. Henry smoothly pedaled Gamera up to just over 8 feet (2.5 meters) altitude and had a controlled descent for a flight time of about 25 seconds. This is not an official record but is certainly the highest a human powered helicopter has ever reached.

Our goals are to continue flight testing to achieve a 3 meter (9.8 ft) altitude as part of the AHS Igor I. Sikorsky Human Powered Helicopter Competition ('The Sikorsky Prize'). Stay tuned to this YouTube channel as more historic flights are achieved and posted!
