WORLD's SMALLEST REMOTE-CONTROL HELICOPTER

NANO-FALCON
Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's SMALLEST REMOTE-CONTROL HELICOPTER ENGINE

The tiny helicopter has been named Nano-Falcon and measures just 65mm in length while weighing a mere 11 grams. Apparently, the Nano-Falcon has already obtained the official Guinness world record for being the smallest in its category, but that won’t stop it being a lot of fun to play with.

For around $46 you get a helicopter that can happily rest in a dessert spoon. That 11 grams of total weight somehow includes a rechargeable battery that is good for 5 minutes of flying time after a 30 minute charge (the remote control uses 4 AA batteries). It also looks as though recharging is done via a USB port.

WORLD's LARGEST SINGLE BLOOM FLOWERS

Upto 11 kg (24 lb)
Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's LARGEST SINGLE BLOOM FLOWERS

Flowers of plants in the genus Rafflesia (family Rafflesiaceae) emit an odor similar to that of decaying meat. This odor attracts the flies that pollinate the plant. The latter point earning it the nickname of "corpse flower". The world's largest single bloom is R. arnoldii. This rare flower is found in the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. It can grow to be 3 feet across and weigh up to up to 11 kg (24 lb). R. arnoldii is a parasitic plant on Tetrastigma vine, which grows only in primary rainforests with no visible leaves, roots, or stem. It does not photosynthesize, but rather uses the host plant to obtain water and nutrients.

Formula Rossa is a launched roller coaster located at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Manufactured by Intamin, Formula Rossa is the world's fastest roller coaster with a top speed of 240 km/h (150 mph). The coaster train accelerates to its top speed in approximately 4.9 seconds using a hydraulic launch system which generates a release velocity similar to that of aircraft carrier steam catapults. The roller coaster track is 2.2 km (1.4 mi) in length, ranking it 6th in the world, behind Steel Dragon 2000, The Ultimate, The Beast, Fujiyama, and Millennium Force Its shape was inspired by the legendary Italian racetrack Autodromo Nazionale Monza. Due to the high air speeds and thus risk of an impact with airborne particulates or insects, the two riders at the front are required to wear protective glasses similar to those used during skydiving.
