Man Builds Terrifying Personal Octocopter Capable Of Lifting His Weight

This is a video of Youtuber AmazingDIYProjects demonstrating the giant octocoper he built that's actually capable of supporting a human's weight. It's powered by eight gas-engine propellers that definitely don't look like they'd be any fun to get hit by. But you can't afford to add any more weight constructing safety cages, so what are you supposed to do? Exactly, just leave it as a giant deathtrap. I feel like the whole thing has kind of a hearse feel to it. Or least some kind of old timey buggy you'd expect to see a dead body carted around in. Which is kind of ironic because it's only a matter of time till we see one in this thing.

Keep going for the video, but skip to 4:15 for the initial takeoff, then several flights from different angles.

Thanks to Jeremy, who's holding out for a two-seater because what good is octocoptering if you can't share it with the person you love. You know, or die together.
