Re: Manned multi-copter flight

Do you think I can get the parts from HK for this? Very cool, thanks Brian.

Once again, models are a precursor of the real thing!

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..

Re: Manned multi-copter flight

Sorry guys if I am out of line but I find this video totally hilarious, like modern version of something from "Those Magnificent Men in their flying Machines" movie. This is a giant rc model with a pilot sitting there as dead weight piloting this thing from the seat with a radio, not really flying it. And yes I know no one really flies modern jets directly either the computers do, but in this case it seems very funny to me, besides quite dangerous knowing how unreliable our state of the art currently is.
