    I'm light weight enough... the question is who I trust with the controller!

    Wow - that's pretty crazy! And no blade guards either... If it lands hard and one shatters, that guy's going to look like a diced onion!

    Are we sure it's not a photoshop? Didn't think you could get that kind of lift with blades that small. (Even if the guy is only 100 lbs, that's 25 lbs of lift from each of the four quads. Mighty impressive if true!)

    I vote Chris Tate (Lazerjock) to be at the controls.

    So is the plan for SELEM 2015 to have Brad as a quad-quad passenger and while aloft we land a smaller quad on Brad's head?

    That's insane!

    But I agree with Gary. I want one! I'd put some blade guards on the thing though.

    That was the prototype. I was real!
    Here is the original video:

    Now they stepped it up and built this:

    BTW it's not a quad rotor...it's a 16 rotor. What ever that is called?

    And yes I'll fly Brad around. Lol

    Count me in!

    I like the big rubber ball main landing gear ~
    that might have come in handy a time or two over the years....
