I'm waiting for the Colin Furze pulsejet jetpack :)
Agreed, especially as he has tucked his tie into his shirt...
Flies?? More like WIG hover....that's all.
Seems crazy dangerous though. 10/10 for that. :-(
How on earth does this dude have any limbs left? Crazy, unadulterated lunacy. Love it.
At least he chose a sensible energy source.
As long as Colin wears his safety tie, it will be fine. :)
That's a good approach, and really star-wars like...
Regarding stabilization :
1) On the pitch axis, a Pixhawk would be perfect, also to hover at a precise altitude
2) On the roll axis, he seems to stabilize with more or less chance by moving his body
3) On the yaw axis, it's clearly missing something : there's nothing to act on the yaw, moving the body can't do anything on that axis, and correcting with the feet is relatively crazy. That's why in his video he's always turning around, sometimes in a completely uncontrolled way.
So that's an interesting proof of concept, and one of the best in its genre as it's not limited to a few hundreds meters distance by battery capacity.
But it's only half the work, and finding a way to correct the yaw will probably imply a third rotor or some kind of deflector below the main rotors. I'd add two deflectors (ailerons like) below the rotors to act on the yaw and he's good to go.
There is a total lack of control... 2 motors, 2 fixed props... 2 DOF control. The rest of it is a matter of COG movement, that could be a little annoying. He's better figure out something, but I give a thumb up for the courage and the tentative, not to mention this crazy video... :-)
