Impressive multicopter wing hybrid

Finally, a novel wing rotor design which actually looks like it should fly.  It might only be the finished look instead of the usual carbon fiber rods & duct tape.  There's obviously still a torque problem on the wings, as it approaches higher speed.  It seems like a safer & more scaleable way of attaching many rotors than having a web of them right next to the payload.  Getting in doesn't require traversing a sea of propellers.  There's less danger of a human passenger falling on a propeller.  But the wing is heavier than a nest of carbon fiber rods.
