Why screw around with one propellor when your personal multicopter can have 16? I cannot wait to hover around my neighborhood making everyone jealous and finding frisbees stuck on roofs.
The German e-volo multicopter is the first manned electric multicopter to take flight according to the company. The pilot, Thomas Senkel utilized a hand-held wireless control unit to steer the spider-like contraption from a center-mounted seat. The initial flight only lasted approximately 90 seconds, but potential flight time could last as long as 30 minutes. A gas/electric hybrid copter could stay afloat for as long as an hour according to the company. Watch the video below for copter-flying action.
