    looks like UFO.
     
  4. That is cool, but in the wrong hands you can imagine the uses. Can probably land it on top of a car or near a moving vehicle.
     
  5. Nice! I wonder if this technology can feasibly be applied to our transportation vehicles . I wonder if it could still fly if one of the propellers is malfunctioned.
     
  6. if one rotor malfunctioned, the entire aircraft would spin out of control due to the unbalanced torque -- unless it was smart enough to shut off one of the opposing rotors.
     
  7. I disagree, it should be smart enough to fly in the dominant direction.

    Given correct controls, an aircraft like this could easily fly on 4 rotors, or at least autorotate safely.

    the pigs in the uk are using these already to track crims and other perps - with cameras attached. like we dont have enough cctv.

    anyway, they were busted cos they infringe on air space or something like that - they can go quite high

  9. You'll see this kind of innovation from Germany. Which it is from..



    Now where wouldn't we find such innovation and inventiveness?
