Below is a test flight video of the Hexacopter, a paramiltary helicopter with six sets of 10″ propellers, six motors, an on-board GPS, and a built-in camera (weighing 300 grams). It’s ultra stable and will hover in place if the operator steps away from the remote control. It can also use its GPS to automatically return to its launch point. Best of all, check out the speed of vertical lift on this thing and how much weight it can lift compared to its size. In addition to the camera and GPS, the Hexacopter in this video can lift a liter of cola weighing about a kilogram.
It also sounds like a swarm of wasps, which is perfect. My neighbors are going to be saying, “Are those wasps? Oh, it’s just a little toy helicopter coming down.” And then, boom, I release the kilogram of wasps.
