GoPro Flight: Throwing A Foam Airplane Off A HUGE Mountain

SUBSCRIBE!: http://bit.ly/1G97GmA SHARE THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/LwX9ugZ8tcs This video features our full flight from the GoPro camera!! I thought the video was just too cool not to show in its full form. Also take note at HOW LONG the flight time is!!!! All we did was throw the foam glider off the mountain! Did this exceed your expectations? Were you surprised at how long it went? Let me know in comment section down below! As a kid I LOVED when my parents took me to a store that had foam gliders. We would always play with them until the wings broke off and could not be repaired with duct tape. However, I always wondered how far a foam glider would fly if it were thrown off of an incredibly high platform… like a mountain!?!@! We hiked up to the tallest point we had access too (Mt. Allen in the Santa Monica Mountains) and threw our glider out into the wind. The result was MIND BLOWING!!! I’m so proud of our little foam glider/GoPro set up. The footage is so beautiful. And the reason all of this is even possible is because of the wing of the plane. The wing has a special shape that allows for “lift”. Lift is generated when there is high pressure below the wing and low pressure above it. The explanation for how this happens is actually very advanced.

Saw your appearance on AGT it was amazing, good luck
Michael Gavartin (1 year ago)
nick this was awesome. so awesome in fact I want to see more of it!!! I feel like if you made sure the glider was 100% balanced and it was it windless day, it could fly for miles down that mountain!! you could also fit a miniature GPS tracker to find it again. cheers for the great content anyways!!
TheMinecraftOverlord (1 year ago)

Been waiting for this perspective of it ever since you posted the original video XD
Vadrif Draco (1 year ago)
To be honest if the turns were less sharp one would have confused it with some sort of a mini-plane haha

How did that plane go so far
Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
I think there were wind currents pushing the airplane up in the beginning of the flight, and then normal "sea breezes" from the ocean that kept it in motion.

Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
it literally too the rest of the day... I'd say 4-5 hours of trekking through the Santa Monica mountains

Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
I had faith up until hour 3, then I started thinking we might just not find it... then right where we thought it would be we found it at first glance... insanely lucky on this one!
HESHAM SH (1 year ago)
if you lowered the camera it would have been an awesome video well maybe next time :/
Juilienne (1 year ago)

Nick Uhas (1 year ago)
yea we originally wanted to do this from the Hollywood sign, although we didn't think we could retrieve it if it landed on the roof of a house.
ArtfulSilver (1 year ago)

good placement on the gopro. I'm guessing that had to be practically perfect to do that. Good video and nice job!
