“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”
Normally when we talk about quadrotor helicopters, we end up screaming in terror at those damn manhacks, but occasionally a quadrocopter comes along that is awesome. Like, flying shark awesome. A new, custom-designed quadrocopter is flying around Russia being all cool and nostalgic. This Russian built a quadrocopter that looks like a flying car, specifically the DeLorean from Back to the Future, complete with LEDs all around and a Mr. Fusion in the back. Unfortunately, the Mr. Fusion doesn’t work (yet), as the DeLorean uses a lithium polymer battery instead.
There are not a lot of details on the thing, other than the fact that its stabilization control is powered by MultiWii, a HobbyKing 12A BlueSeries speed controller, and a batch of Turnigy 2204-14T motors for the engines. [Technabob]
As you can see in the video below, this car hovers very well despite having an uneven weight distribution, so kudos to this Russian for getting it to balance. Now, if my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour, you’re gonna see some serious sh-t.
I must possess this.
