I taught History for my cadets In civil air patrol for all four years of High school, and I did do some teaching on the subject of how the Army used transport gliders. Back in the Day the Army made several gliders that could be towed by DC-10's, piloted by an Army Airborne officer or sergeant, land on rough terrain at the same time as others, take punishment, and be picked back up by the Same dc-10 flying over head.
That's the gist of what's in the video and here is my new concept and project. drones, mostly used for military purposes now, will have a big need in the private sector and the lives of ordinary people trying to make money with the job. We could easily make a drone that could carry a drone glider transport and do the same thing as back in the day except not carry people or weapons of course. it could carry medical supplies for Search and rescue, or it could carry parts needed for a truck, or even mail. im working on a foam board cargo plane (rc for now, next year it will be a drone) and I can make a duplicate that will have no engine but the same software. iv already got ideas for how to get it dropped and how to flyover and pick it up at the same time. They did not have servos back in the day, so picking it back up and letting it go will be a cinch. it will just take some thinking and ingenuity. What do you guys think? Any ideas? fair flying friends!
