The linked site wouldn't work for me but is looked too cool to not search youtube for a more direct link...  For others having trouble, this might work:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqyubVwOV7w

Imagine if the tesla coils actually powered the copter. I mean drone.

I think I seen some thing like this a year ago that actually powered the copter I think it was under the heading Energy power transfer ? I remember discussing it with /Munroe?

Also useful for flying your quad in rowdy Country&Western bars.
