What a man...

It’s men like this that put the great in Britain. Maverick daredevils wasting time and money to get an inch off the ground – brilliant.

This here is gasturbine101 who has – for reasons unknown – decided to combine the power of 54 drones to produce a new form of air travel – as long as you’re happen moving about a yard.

It has the power to last about 10 minutes in the air (or attempting to get in the air) and cost a cool £6,000 to build. As the inventor/pilot explains:

“Just a bit of fun for myself, never intended for making a significant journey or flying much above head height.”

He’d suggest the name needs some work – the ‘Swarm Manned Aerial Vehicle Multirotor Super Drone’ isn’t the catchiest of titles…
