    this is a bad bad idea

  2. Life of Bassman on October 24, 2020 at 12:46 pm

    Does it sound like a noob on bagpipes to anyone

  3. HQ on October 24, 2020 at 12:52 pm

    Amazing! But this thing needs a frame around it! (didn’t watch the whole video, maybe you told about it)

  4. Daniël Boomsma on October 24, 2020 at 12:53 pm

    this looks extremely dangerous to me …

  5. kingcrimson234 on October 24, 2020 at 12:53 pm

    That’s pretty cool, good work. I feel like one built with a huge array of powerful DC electric motors controlled by an Arduino and powered by a big deep cycle battery could be more reliable though? And probably get more flight time. It could also be made to hover and stay level automatically by using a gyroscope, accelerometer and good coding. There would be no need to manually keep it balanced. It would go a long way towards safety.

    Dude…. You are pretty amazing, and still young enough to explore many more contraptions as yet unthought of. Good job.

  7. enfieldpoltergeist on October 24, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    Wheres the batteries?

  8. hafeexius on October 24, 2020 at 12:57 pm

    Absolutely amazing!

    I need one to beat the horrendous traffic here 🙊

  9. Furios on October 24, 2020 at 12:57 pm

    bro… i want one. i would fly to new york city and go on a police chase for 3 hours

  10. Hyhmollmnh Nsujnwk on October 24, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    What motors and controller u use

  11. Brettvalery Brett on October 24, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    Drone qui soulève son propre poids.. Pratique pour fuir des immeubles en feu.. #😇

  12. unit411 on October 24, 2020 at 1:00 pm

    did you put optical encoders on the engines to make throttle more accurate ?

  13. MEL LOW on October 24, 2020 at 1:01 pm

    If that thing tips just a little to one side say goodbye to one of your legs.

  14. Dens & Deals LLC on October 24, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    More controlled flight would be a game changer for your project!

  15. Joseph Achadu on October 24, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    I love this but a question what is the HP of the piston engine

  16. Guido Ahsam on October 24, 2020 at 1:04 pm

    and this is how you will one day die

  17. Amir Ali on October 24, 2020 at 1:04 pm

    which transmitter and reciever did you use
    any link or model
    plz any one

  18. Alistratov1971 on October 24, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    You need a better PID 🙂 !!!

  19. Research and Build on October 24, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    We already invented flying machines, you know that?

  20. Big Rig Cooking on October 24, 2020 at 1:08 pm

    I would suggest putting the seat UNDER the chassis. That would significantly lower the center of gravity and reduce the instability issues resulting from simply shifting your weight.

  21. MDRASEL 5563 on October 24, 2020 at 1:09 pm

    nice plz kitne paise ki milti hai flying Drone motor

  22. MallyAh TrooT on October 24, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    Perfect my drone

  23. CrocPSL on October 24, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    The wobble is caused by the pilot CG is to high..

  24. TheAlliance Staff on October 24, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    If you could, I would think about relocating the props above you, although this may kick up dust, a simple wind shield or helmet with a leather jacket may do the trick. Props above you are simply safer.

  25. Flytnc on October 24, 2020 at 1:12 pm

    I need stabilizer control like a drone

  26. Alexander Moriarty on October 24, 2020 at 1:12 pm

    Sorry… If the maximum height it reaches is 16 feet, it is not an aircraft … it is merely a hovercraft!

  27. Kamic J on October 24, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    Dude u just risked your life, and no I’m not talking about you flying although if you would have went any higher the FAA would have gotcha but I’m talking about the propellers man, 🤦🏽‍♂️ they right beside u and if one come off it bye bye

  28. mas boy RC on October 24, 2020 at 1:17 pm

    This is awesome !!

  29. Koapem on October 24, 2020 at 1:19 pm

    I feel like if I were to fly that the first ten seconds I would get like 10 ft off the ground have a panic attack and crash it

  30. Byron Lujan on October 24, 2020 at 1:20 pm

    Who else would be flying around the neighborhood

  31. Jake on October 24, 2020 at 1:20 pm

    You need some sort of landing gear

  32. xerravon on October 24, 2020 at 1:22 pm

    Why do these guys sit right in line with the pros? Broken prop, right through him?? One problem, he throws his hand down to catch himself, bye bye arm! I’d have the props above me for safety!!!

  33. Joca Simões on October 24, 2020 at 1:23 pm

    Uau, very niçe 😁👍 👏

  34. Lorrie Carrel on October 24, 2020 at 1:24 pm

    Good job for real

  35. Galen Tingle on October 24, 2020 at 1:24 pm

    Amazing!

  36. Real Epic on October 24, 2020 at 1:24 pm

    Great idea but CG to high

  37. Nick Houck on October 24, 2020 at 1:24 pm

    Cool ride , if I were gunna go through the trouble and expense of a build like this I would add redundancy such as reserved lift , fuel , a stabalizer seems it would help a lot. But of course gas makes that all a lot harder so good job so far. Hard to say just from the video because it looks out of balance but its probably just turbulence.

  38. Rui Pires on October 24, 2020 at 1:25 pm

    Nice job buddy!! Must of felt great!! Congratulations!!

  39. Camerounisme on October 24, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    Amazing

  40. Samexander on October 24, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    Could you post a link to the motors used?

  41. Taylor Sharp on October 24, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    9:45

  42. reDLine on October 24, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    You need the props above you dude. Your center of gravity is way to high and makes the octacopter unstable. And you need to bring the middle 4 props out more so is has more left and right pitch control. And some landing gear to absorb the landing Other than that pretty cool dude well done!

  43. Tom Barker on October 24, 2020 at 1:32 pm

    I think I may have seen this one before.
    This fella should really consider some other way to be productive.
    I’m not saying this because of any impending failure (although…) but because this is being done electrically, FAR MORE reliably, with FAR better results (by MUCH smarter people).
    When you die, you’ll just be dead because of a dangerous hobby. Think about the idiots who’ve died in wingsuit crashes,
    "Doing what they loved". Thats right, nobody remembers them either.
    Oh….have fun.
    I’m gonna go weed-eat my lawn……

  44. wylieecoyote on October 24, 2020 at 1:34 pm

    It is a very cool and dangerous project. You should have sacrificial landing skids to absorb a hard impact. Lightweight foam would help soften a hard impact. Another idea would be to use an autogyro blade on stop to give you lift in forward motion and if there is a failure it will slow you to a landing.

  45. furulevi on October 24, 2020 at 1:35 pm

    Try ducted propellers also (more protection, higher efficiency) I’m not sure from where to get them… 🙂

  46. Angus Nock on October 24, 2020 at 1:35 pm

    one little tip…. and you’re dead. Those wings will eat you up. I realized you have a seatbelt though lol

  47. jb on October 24, 2020 at 1:41 pm

    Would it make more sence2 to have the 4 center ones out about 6/8 inches?

  48. Petras V on October 24, 2020 at 1:41 pm

    Awesome,
    How do you maintain stability acc. the vertical axis, it means the direction, while all motors rotate in one direction?

  49. Michael Otoo on October 24, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    What flymo is that it’s not cutting the grass you need to get your money back man

  50. A.LaVerne Filan on October 24, 2020 at 1:44 pm

    I regret that I have but one life to give for my own stupidity! My crystal ball tell’s me that if you continue in your same mode of operation that you are going to need landing gear for your head! Why do helicopter’s have rotor’s above the pilot’s head instead of under the pilot’s feet? So they won’t be so inclined to try and fly upside down!
