Default MR carrying man to World Record Flight

This was done a few months ago (sorry if this has been posted before) but it was shown in a short documentary a couple days ago on TV.

A pair of pliers as throttle grip, sounds like my kind of fabrication works. Hey, he uses Nanotech A-Spec's.

I'd seen it before, but it's still pretty darn cool. Sign me up.

From the short documentary, looks like his "secret" new version will be running ducted fans. Good for speed and safety but not sure about efficiency and yaw and stabilization controls. Actually, I don't even know if it needs much of those. You can do some if not most of the stabilization with the feet.

Ducted fans can actually be much more efficient than just rotors by themselves. And yaw could be controlled by varying the angle of one or more of the props.


I've been following this build for a while as well:

Just think, one day we might be on here discussing the multi-rotors that we literally fly in!

Unfortunately, he wrecked it:

He seems determined to rebuild and keep going. Most of these projects are funded or sponsored by companies/universities/etc. He's the only one that I'm aware of keeping the dream alive for us hobbyists. Feel free to give him words of encouragement so he doesn't give up.
