Helicopter Physics


I like this video about the physics of helicopters, not just because it has some good explanation of the science of rotating blade aircraft, but it also shows some really cool light painting with helicopters.  Of course it would be more awesome if it included quadcopters, but hey, you can't have everything.  Destin from Smarter Every Day has some rally great videos on a variety of topics including using a high speed camera to understand the physics of poop splashes.  That is useful science.
