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.

THere are plenty of examples in the west, except they are typically called jetpacks. THe man with the jetpack hovers over water and has pipes to suck in water.
