  • Update on that real life Nausicaa Glider with Video

    As a fan of the Nausicaa of The Valley of the Wind, this long ongoing project (Started in 2003) has always given me a sense of awe ( that moving light up Gundam wasn't a thing quite yet).

    They actually got it to the point where it can lift by using it's own engine! The last big update video in 2008 or 2009 the thing needed a launcher give it acceleration and get off the runway.


    Below are links to the July 31st test flight in Japan.

    Note: the engine noise might be a little loud!


    Well done Hachiya Kazuhiko and everyone else involved in the "Open Sky" project So awesome!
