It starts to get really interesting at about 3 minutes into the film.

That is realy cool, nice to see they got it to properly lift off, but they definitely need some sort of autopilot to control it.

Definitely one of those 'i will build it, if you fly it' projects'. lol...

Lots of nice space for banner ads on the round thingy. Perhaps 3D Robotics and Chris can cut a deal and give them an APM for some ad space before the poor pilot gets cut up by the blades. :o)

They need to learn something of this branch :

I should have put in a little reminder that we already had a little chill-down-the-spine chat after seeing a previous tape from this in Gian Carlo Martinelli's post

This film from the cattlefarmer turned aviation pioneer's backyard seems to depict a later stage of his mad multi rotor development, culminating in a terrifying scene. I hope the poor man saw some light after this test. 

The film caught my eye after seeing the film Chris Anderson posted about the carrier landing competition and I could not see that we had it up here before.

Eduardo: Esse comentário é impróprio. (That is not a nice thing to say).

I don't even understand the theory behind this. How would he hope to control the engine speed fast enough to stabilize this? As far as I know, multicopters with gas engines have always used variable-pitch props, while these are fixed pitch.
