Looks Dangerous: Crazy Person Builds Homemade Flying Machine Using 54 Drone Rotors

September 2, 2015


This is the quinquagintiquadricopter (54 -- is that right?) flying machine built and being flown by a crazy person. They call it the Swarm. I call it I hope for the sake of your family you have life insurance. The flying machine can allegedly lift 164kg (~360-pounds) and fly for about ten minutes on a full battery charge. For reference, that will leave about 9 and a half minutes of battery charge left to use for something else after you crash this thing into a tree.

Hit the jump for the video. Things almost get out of hand at 2:20.

Thanks to PlasticNinja, who I swear I can see moving out of the corner of my eye but now I'm not sure if it's just my eyes playing tricks on me. Because sometimes they like to play this trick where they don't want to open when my alarm goes off.
