Set-Up and Execution/
A 24 m high working platform is set up in a room. The crank arm of the lifting platform is extended until below the ceiling of the room. In the safety cage of the lifting platform is a switched-on 18 KW Fresnel Daylight floodlight, which generates a lot of heat. On the floor of the room are nine remote controlled model helicopters. The rotor blades of the helicopters are made of wax. Through use of a remote control device, the model helicopters are flown close to the floodlights.
Supposition/
When the model helicopters fly too close to the headlight, the wax rotor blades melt and they plummet to the ground.
