What’s more fascinating than the ultralight free fliers in Phil Kibbe’s documentary Float? The people who dedicate their lives to making them.
This beautifully shot trailer is my first exposure to the world of indoor rubber-powered model aeroplanes. One single wound rubber motor keeps these dragonflies hovering for half an hour, on average, with the world record being over an hour. And honestly, even if they didn’t go anywhere, they’re perfectly perfect to look at. You can help get the entire documentary completed over at Kickstarter. [This Is Colossal via Reddit]
