Re: Manned multi-copter flight

Boy, that is really COOL!!

But for something like that, I would want to have a Martin-Baker 0-0-0 ejection seat.

I've seen enough catastrophic failures on the model quads/Hex's to make me a bit nervous sitting in it..

Very cool! I would feel a lot more comfortable though if the props were shielded. There's a lot of carbon fibre swords spinning around that guy...
