Ok this is pushing the limits on flying personal vehicles. I mean this is insane and very cool.
This man build a flying chair made up of multiple drone motors and props, This is basically a real flying saucer folks or a air car.

It's very crude and very noisy (note his ear plugs), but still this could be the beginning of something very awesome. Well until the government shut this down as well.

Here are the specs:

162kg TOW Hover efficiency 7.5-7.7g/W Setup: FC 5x KK 2.1 running stock 1.6 firmware Motors 76x Multistar Elite 5010 274Kv ESC 76x afro 20A HV, with one extra 63V 330uF low ESR capacitor fitted to each ESC to handle the long current path from battery to ESC. Batteries 80x Multistar 4S 5.2Ah RC 5x Turnigy TGY-i6S Digital Proportional Radio Control System All of the above, except the extra capacitors, purchased from Hobby King, -my favorite online hobby shop! Total cost approximately 10.000USD


Actually seems a lot cheaper than a hot air balloon, utra-lite or even some hang gliders?


Enjoy the video ATS.

Kinda puts the AVRO car to shame.

I'd love to make one of those, cover it with heat shrinking aluminium foil, add some flashing lights and fly past a police speed trap at night

That looks pretty fun, but I think it should have a small generator to extend its range in place of one of the batteries.

Maybe crude and noisy. But it looks like so much fun. I live in a no drone zone, so i can't even fly a DJI Spark.

Thanks for a fun thread.

I was thinking about run times myself. Good idea on the generator concept

This is absolute lunacy!

We need more of this in the world!

Yea a "No Done Zone" could be a good or bad thing huh?

I just wonder if tiny mini computers such as the Raspberry PI or arduno will expand the envelope on more DIY projects like these. Not sure if this project is using any of these, but still. I got my Raspberry PI 3 ordered and got a project planned.

No Drone Zones are good for Big Oil. Bad for those of us who want free ourselves of buying gasoline by breaking our Big Oil chains and taking off to the skies.

I'll leave you in the weeds with my new Flyboard.

There's a guy who made a flight suit out of some turbines from rc Jets.

I thought I read here on ATS that this was a hoax?

Yea i believe it was debunked cause the small turbines did not scale up to the needed thrust or something?

Lol.. this guy has too much time on his hands. If only we can all be so fortunate.

Sounds like a swarm of bees.

Thats very real. Is a jet engine (or 4 jet engines), run by kerosene stored in a Camelback.

That method of travel looks far more comfortable and stable than those hoverboards and the jet backpacks. Thanks for this peak at a practical method for travel. Hopefully in the NEAR future.

Smaller, faster, able to fly longer- still not exactly advanced though?

I suppose minimising chances of catastrophic mechanical failure is an advance - but where are the Speeder Bikes?

It's nearly 35 years since that dude flew at the 84 Olympics and the options are:

Something that is inherently unsafe (see COD4 wing/fuselage rule for Gyros)
Something with a lifting area so large it becomes no fun (OP's)
Balancing on a turbine with an explosive mixture strapped to your back (pass)
