What do you like better? #Airplanes or #Helicopters? Why not both?

Check out Nasa's latest hybrid Airplane/Helicopter: Takes off like a helicopter and flies like and plane.

Actually this idea is nothing new because helicopters have the advantage that the can take off vertically and are more maneuverable, planes have the advantage that they are fast and use less energy to propel themselves.

Nasa have done a great job in creating a hybrid of the two, enjoy this video which shows the plane/helicopter transition from one form to the other.
