Greased Lightning GL-10 Successful Transition Test

NASA Langley Research Center
30 APRIL 2015

NASA Langley researchers designed and built a battery-powered, 10-engine remotely piloted aircraft.

The Greased Lightning GL-10 prototype has a 10-foot wingspan and can take off like a helicopter and
fly efficiently like an airplane. In this video, engineers successfully transition the plan from hover to
wing-borne flight in tests at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia.
