A backpack helicopter is a helicopter motor and rotor and controls assembly that can be strapped to a person’s back, so they can walk about on the ground wearing it, and can use it to fly. A new type of personal flying device has been shown off on video, and it’s called the CopterPack.

CopterPack is the creation of an Australian startup by the same name.CopterPack is an electric backpack helicopter with a self-levelling autopilot. The lightweight airframe is constructed from carbon fiber honeycomb.

There are no complicated flight controls; the rotors move back-and-forth on a central axle.That movement allows the pilot to control their path in the sky.

The company says the CopterPack has a self-leveling autopilot feature.According to the team behind the device, it uses just two rotor blades to lift a full-grown human off the ground. Each rotor is around 3 feet.

The video demonstrates the CoptorPack’s apparent flight characteristics with apparent seamless forward and sideways capabilities and easy yaw control. CopterPack really doesn’t offer any tantalizing information teasing the backpack’s long-term capabilities. We imagine the battery would severely limit flight time./CopterPack
