Strapped into a Falling Helicopter Because… Science! (Video)

Destin Sandlin has one of the most popular YouTube channels, , but he momentarily made a lot of fans worried there might not be any more videos after this latest experiment—turning off a flying helicopter to prove a point. That point is that astrophysicist and Internet science man who likes to pedantically correct everyone is wrong, specifically about his claim that “An airplane whose engine fails is a glider. A helicopter whose engine fails is a brick.”

(The actual engine disconnect comes at 6:00, but you should enjoy the beautiful scenery until then.)
