Interesting, but no doubt about to kick up a storm of comments about safety...

Interesting, but he seemed very unprepared for things going wrong. At least he did it with something relatively lightweight.

That is David the Swedish guy from the FliteTest Youtube channel.


Some guys from theregister.co.uk did a similar thing over Spain last year in a project they called "PARIS" Paper Aeroplane In Space. They dropped a free flight paper plane from a helium baloon with a video camera and a tracker. They got some nice dark sky photos from the edge of space and recovered the paper plane with very little damage to the plane.

Amazing! You fly all the way down from 70,000 feet to land anywhere in the country and still end up in a tree - gives me a nice warm feelingdisgust
