    John McGinnis trying to reinvent the personal airplane with the help of his father, son, and a rotating crew of about two dozen volunteers. He calls the plane Synergy. McGinnis says Synergy could be cheaper, quieter, and, at more than 40 mpg, three times as fuel-efficient.
    Synergy’s wings bend upward and into a box shape for minimum drag and maximum efficiency. The top half of each wing swoops behind the body to function as a tail while providing greater in-flight stability. The double-box tail design also makes gliding easier by counteracting tornado-like vortices at the wings’ tips. And instead of a front-mounted propeller, an impeller placed behind the bullet-shaped body quiets noise while adding thrust.
    1) A 200hp turbodiesel engine expels heat below the impeller, adding thrust.
    2) Large wings allow slower takeoffs and landings.
    3) Box tails create airflow patterns that reduce drag and increase flight stability.
    4) An autopilot computer can land Synergy at a nearby runway during an emergency; a ballistic parachute can also be deployed.

    Watch the video of Synergy after more.

    Harrison Ford leads the cast of this long-awaited screen adaptation of Orson Scott Card's sci-fi novel. The film, which arrives on November 1. Ender’s Game is set in a future where humans barely survived two attacks from an alien race, causing them to train children for war!
    "In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham, all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin, a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite. Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military's next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he's trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race."

    The Crown Range, New Zealand. 47 corners, 1076 metres elevation, 10.4km long. The country's highest paved roadway. For a moment in time it belongs to one man, Mike Whiddett. The moment will become, the drive of a lifetime....
    ...Whiddett pulls sixth gear along the Crown Terrace and winds the Mazda RX7's 750 horsepower engine out to its redline. He hits 232km/h before slowing, fleetingly pulling on the handbrake to lock the rear wheels before stomping back on the accelerator. The tyres erupt back into a spinning frenzy; black marks the bitumen. This is drifting nirvana in its purest form....
