21st Century Aviation Pioneer Takes Off In A 54-Propeller Super Drone
Is this the future of personal transportation? Using components from R/C planes, a daring British flying enthusiast built his own flying machine.
Reminiscent of the Wright Brothers who built the world's first successful powered airplane in 1903, this video demonstates inventiveness,
pioneer spirit and home engineering at its best.
54 counter-rotation propellers -
Six grouped control channels with Hobbyking stabilization.
Take-off weight: 326 lbs (148 kg)
Maximum lift: 361 lbs (164 kg)
Maximum flight duration (current prototype): 10 minutes.
Future versions with lighter airframe and more powerful batteries will be able to increase the flight time to a marked degree.
The aircraft is also quite safe, since a failure of one engine will not affect flight performance very much.
