Flying Avengers Helicarrier Actually Handles Aircraft

by Shane McGlaun

One of the coolest things about the Avengers movie was the massive flying helicarrier that had all the people and aircraft aboard. That was awesome and I would love to see that happen in the real world. As close as we are likely to get to have a real helicarrier is this remote-controlled version that some geeks cooked up.

Sure we have seen flying R/C versions of the helicarrier in the past, but this time out they actually land R/C planes on the helicarrier and take off from it – making it much cooler.  It’s a bit of a trial-and-error thing to land planes on the flying deck of the helicarrier though.

The planes taking off and landing on the carrier don’t exactly look like the aircraft from the movie, so there is room for improvement. Check out the video and see the aircraft fly, land (and crash).
