KFC Buckets Can Make A Model Airplane Fly [Video]

YouTuber PeterSripol has repurposed the iconic KFC bucket into a flying machine by using two of them as Flettner rotors on an RC model airplane. The design employs a phenomenon known as the Magnus Effect, which generates lift by putting a backspin on a cylinder or sphere.

As the video below details, the process was a blur of crashes, repairs and a complete redesign – and in the end, the model only flew a little better than an actual chicken.
