At the end of last month some German engineers working for e-volo showcased this crazy copter.
Having done a number of unmanned test flights it was time for the team to check out its new flying machine which seems to be comprised of 18 propellers and a Swiss ball.
The multicopter only weighs 80 kilograms without a passenger and is as easy to operate as a car according to the design team. It’s powered by an electric battery.
Is this the future of air transportation? Probably not, but have a look at the video of the first flight below.
