RC Glider Speed Record-548 mph

I found this amazing and thought I'd share. I guess you could say it's a windsport.

I'd heard about dynamic soaring as a theory years ago. First time I've seen a practical application outside of birds.

That's really amazing. I wonder if birds can do that (maybe not that fast). Not the same thing at all, but I recall driving on 285 once at highway speed and bird was flying behind the truck in front my and not losing any ground. They are probably pretty smart about things like that.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.
