    At least he was thinking. Looks like crushable foam under his seat and the shield incase a prop shatters.

    I think it would be more interesting to see someone make multiple drones built around Android phones. Use the GPS and some kind of app to move them as a cloud. Have it built in that they maintain a standard separation but move from point to point. Like a flock of starlings or pigeons. I bet that would look creepy as all get out.

    The guy must be afraid of heights.

    I'll guess that if one prop-blade cuts loose, it would cause a reaction that would make many blades cut loose and he should christen that craft "Marie Antoinette".

    If you lose control, you'll find out what it's like to be a frog in a blender!

    A few thoughts, 1) I'd love to have the cash he wasted on that thing 2) I hate yellow jackets and that thing sounds like a bunch of angry yellow jackets.

    It looked like with a little practice that would fly pretty good. Every time he started getting some height he backed off the throttle. The one time he got pretty high he screamed like a little girl!
