Greased Lightning GL-10 Prototype Is Both Helicopter and a Plane
Combines the Utility of Helicopters with a Much-Needed Blastoff Into Our Stratosphere Aerial enthusiast? Can’t get enough of flying helicopters and quadcopters? NASA is taking their new prototype to the skies for a unique flight experience. Hold ...
The Greased Lightning GL-10 is a current electric plane prototype from NASA that takes off similar to a helicopter but flies like an airplane. This means this flying device can land and take off vertically as well as blast off with the high speed of an airplane. This baby boasts of ten rotors for a balanced and controlled flight. It even auto adjusts its flight mode once it’s up in the air!
Though this prototype has a small wingspan of 20 feet and weighs a light 55 pounds, NASA hopes to take this prototype to a real scale in time. After all, why settle for a few rotors when you can have ten?
