The unnamed pilot, who has been posting updates on his quadcopter project under the handle “amazingDIYprojects” for over seven years now, can be seen buzzing through the trees in this sun-dappled Swedish forrest like something out of a Scandinavian fairy tale.
The machine uses 76 Multistar Elite drones to get off the ground, five remote controls and 80 high capacity batteries. The maker claims it cost around $10,000 (£7,700) to build. The driver even brakes, changes direction and manoeuvres up and down to prove how functional the aircraft is.
Looking like a vast quadcopter, Borg’s flying machine is what is known as a multirotor vehicle thanks in part to the vast number of rotors that are being use to provide the lift.Borg’s creation has taken him years to build but considering it has been his dream to fly since college we’ll cut him some slack.
The craft apparently uses the same control scheme as a remote control quadcopter which should make it relatively easy to fly, indeed Borg’s test flights show that he’s already pretty adept at handling this giant fly swat.
