Swarm man takes (wobbly) flight in home-made multicopter

This week’s video proves that a modest budget and whole lot of ingenuity can help you defy gravity and fly.


The so-called Swarm Man has spent approximately £6,000 on his multi-rotor flying machine that he describes on YouTube as “just a bit of fun, never intended for making a significant journey or flying much above head height”.

Watch, enjoy and then visit the YouTube page of Swarm Man (aka gasturbine101) to see – among other things – the start up of a Rolls-Royce RB211 in what looks like someone’s back yard.
