Watch a 10-engine drone transform from a helicopter into a plane

NASA’s Greased Lightning GL-10 is a beast of a drone (it has 10 engines!) that’s the closest thing we have to a Transformer in real life. It can flip itself into a helicopter and then fly like an airplane and then revert back to helicopter mode. It’s awesome seeing the wings tilt back and forth as it changes gears.

Mad Max: Fury Road without the special effects is still awesome

Most movies, especially big blockbuster action movies, look embarrassingly awkward when you strip away the CGI and special effects and expose it in real life. It’s because so much is fake these days! Not Mad Max: Fury Road though. That movie’s action sequences still look so bad ass in real life. Check it out. » 6/05/15 3:07pm 6/05/15 3:07pm

Incredible video of an air tanker refueling a tanker against a full moon

Without a doubt, this is one of the coolest airplane videos I have ever seen. Thanks to the magic of telephoto lenses, the moon in this infrared clip looks impossibly gigantic. The fact that a KC-10 tanker is refueling another KC-10 tanker make the entire thing feel unreal—as in “I had a hard time believing this… » 5/25/15 1:30pm 5/25/15 1:30pm

Flying jetmen stunningly soar all over Dubai in amazing video

Watch as Jetman Yves Rossy and his protege, Jetman Vince Reffet, take their crazy jetpacks to the skies of Dubai and tour the city like Superman would. It’s unbelievable every time I see them soar through the air like fighter jets, busting moves and tricks that only stunt planes dare to try. Except they’re not in a… » 5/12/15 10:17am 5/12/15 10:17am

Watch this insanely fast drone fly at impossible speeds into the clouds

Holy crap. Once this drone decides to go, it just guns it like a warp speed rocket ship into the air. It’s so fast that I can’t believe it’s real. But Quadmovr has been showing iterations of its super fast drone for months now and everything else in the video seems to be moving at a normal speed so my God, this is… » 4/30/15 11:58am 4/30/15 11:58am

Watch the top 10 coolest airplane dogfight scenes in movie history

I’m not sure that CineFix included all the most visually awesome aerial dogfight scenes in their top 10 video for best dogfights of all time, but I do know that it’s always fun as hell to see two flying killer bird machines try to take down each other in an incredible array of skill, weaponry, quick reflexes and oh… » 4/27/15 6:35pm 4/27/15 6:35pm

Well, let’s blast a water hose at a flame thrower while the flame thrower is firing off at the water hose to find out. Guess who’s the winner? » 4/23/15 2:11pm 4/23/15 2:11pm

These Shade-Tree Mechanics Know How To Make A Real Range Rover Pickup

Yesterday the always-extreme luxotuner Brabus/Startech turned the back of a new Range Rover into a pickup bed, and bedazzled the rest of the thing with fender flares, carbon accents, and 11"-wide wheels. Meanwhile some folks in Seattle made their own Range Rover truck and it's way, way better. » 4/16/15 4:43pm 4/16/15 4:43pm

I Need An Off-Road Porsche 911 In My Life

The best car in the 12 Hours of Sebring paddock wasn't one of the party trucks that wandered around with fans yelling "WOOOO" in the bed, or any kind of latest-and-greatest supercar. Nope. Not even close. It was this 1986 Porsche 911 jacked up on nubby tires with a million rally lights up front. I'm...I'm in love. » 3/22/15 3:05pm 3/22/15 3:05pm

Cool video shows fighter jet takeoff from a completely new perspective

Here's awesome footage from underneath a MiG-29 showing the fighter jet taking off from an aircraft carrier. The view is insane, you see the jets fire up and watch the world turn blurry as the MiG launches itself into the air. There's a surprising, almost sort of peaceful awesomeness when it starts flying and leaves… » 3/10/15 2:37pm 3/10/15 2:37pm

New amazing metal is so hydrophobic it makes water bounce like magic

Scientists at the University of Rochester have created a metal that is so extremely hydrophobic that the water bounces on it as if it were repelled by a magic force field. Instead of using chemical coatings they used lasers to etch a nanostructure on the metal itself. It will not wear off, like current less effective… » 1/21/15 8:22am 1/21/15 8:22am
