The Giant Megakopter Flies!

The Giant Megakopter Flies!

Well it looks like the Megakopter took its first flight just a couple of days ago.  This giant Drone is equipped with 48 propellers and is capable of lifting  a large payload.   This bird is a drone built by the university of Oslo, Department of Informatics, and is said to be the world’s largest hobby multicopter.  The final aim of this creation is to safely transport a person through the air.  Do we have any volunteers for the first flight?

  1. Were those basket balls, or cannon balls?
    It really doesn’t mention the actual weight does it?
    Luftfartstilsynets, Norway’s CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) Has this to say about that….

    Chapter 2 section 6…
    Not nearly as Draconian as the FAA … is it?

    1. It weights about 76 kilos so we can legally lift up to 74 under the EU rules. The bumpers are air filled pilates balls 🙂
