You don't need a ton of money to create something truly unique...just a vivid imagination. With commercial passenger drones ranging in price from $150,000 to $400,000, I dare say that this individual built his for a lot less! I think that he might need to install a few more bathtub drains if he wants to take flight in the rain.

If you want a canopy, all the avionics and safety standards then $150,000 to $400,000 will be about right.

Looks hella dangerous for him and everyone around him.
If he hits the ground with an angle with the blades rotating it will be all over the place decapitating and destroying

I'm complementing his ingenuity and the fact is, it's not as dangerous as some other modes of flight....

Don't drop the remote controls overboard. Otherwise, brilliant.

Of course it is dangerous, remember "Those magnificent men in their flying machines?"

Our Health and Safety says you need a fall arrest device at 1.6 meters and if you are working above anything like a valve head or something that may spike you, at all times...

Yes Health and Safety in the workplace is one thing, but god bless these people, pushing the limits.

I wonder when local FAA gonna fill charges for flying the unregistered aircraft. Well at least here where I live they would make sure he will pay and forget it.
Guy did pretty good job for teasing us what's soon to come and I like what I see.

Ummm...that’s cool as eff...I wonder what the range is...

I think it would have been more practical if he’d used a toilet though...think of the possibilities...and names...

Extra battery storage in the tank...the “Lift Loo”...could be the next big thing...


Hopefully there’s not an...oh crap...moment...
Just think though...if your in an...”I’m gonna crap my self”...situation then at least your fully prepared...


Ha...Ha...

He better tether that remote or it's lights out when he hits some rough air and he loses it.

Considering the idiots in day to day traffic, I'd rather fly!

Well that was very cool. But how come he wasn't completely surrounded by people asking questions? I sure would have been asking a bunch.
Maybe not really his first flight there?

To be half that creative.....
