LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - What's a couple of seconds worth? How about a-quarter of a million dollars?
The University of Maryland says its human-powered helicopter flew for 58 seconds over the weekend.
Good -- but not good enough to win the $250,000 Sikorsky Prize.
The competition requires a flight of longer than 60 seconds, at height of 10 feet.
No one has been able to claim the prize since it was created in 1980.
