Russian Heavy-LIft Hexacopter Breakthrough!

The Russian approach to aircraft design has always been famous for robustness and extreme simplicity, and this now extends to multicopters! Here's their latest, with these features: moving part count, zero; electronic circuit count, zero; flight time, indefinite;  cost, approx. 140 Pecks of potatoes.

Needless to say, FAA restrictions prohibit use of this brilliant aircraft in the US.
